Our low cost records storage solutions offer you the peace of mind that your valuable documents are well cared for. We start by supplying you with Filofile storage boxes, we then collect from your premises, register and barcode them into our world class records management system and store them in our highly secure climate controlled storage facility.

Our process

Flow diagram to explain process

With space at a premium these days does it make any sense to try and store documents and valuable files on your own premises or at home?

When you take into consideration that many documents must be kept for a minimum of seven years and you might have the need to be able to access those documents from time to time, then an offsite storage solution like the one that Filofile offers becomes a viable alternative.

If you need access to your documents at anytime, we can easily retrieve them for you.

The Filofile document management service is cost effective, provides full traceability, reduces your cost of renting space to store documents and allows your staff to be more productive.

Filofile understands the problems associated with keeping documents and offers the following for consideration in developing a records management strategy:

  • Paperwork is the largest overhead expense in any organisation
  • Active files typically grow at a rate of about 35% annually
  • Managers spend an average of 4 weeks a year searching for or waiting on misfiled, mislabeled, untracked, or “lost” information
  • Office workers can waste up to two hours a day looking for misplaced paperwork
    90% of records, once filed, are never referred to again
  • 95% of references are to records less than 3 years old
  • Between 3 and 5 percent of an organisation’s files are lost or misplaced
  • 67% of data loss is directly related to user blunders, making them 30 times more menacing than viruses and the leading cause of data loss
  • 30% of paperwork is useless and could be eliminated
  • 37% of photocopies made are unnecessary
  • Some organisations lose a document every 12 seconds.
