I was talking to a retired accountant the other day who told me the salutary…
A lot has been written about the benefits of ‘shopping local’ with an emphasis on using local retailers, supporting independent shops and making use of the shops on your local high street. This has been particularly relevant during the current Lockdown and people have been encouraged to support local businesses rather than shopping further afield and turning to the giants of retail for their shopping experience.
Of course the same is true when it comes to selecting an appropriate business service, whether this be choosing an accountant, selecting a local solicitor or finding the best document management and storage service which could be right on your doorstep!
Filofile has a number of clients across the South West of England, and many of them are within just a few miles of our facility making same day retrieval of records particularly convenient.
Castle Cary based Bramcote Dental Practice is a great example and practice owner Nikolai Stankiewicz is a keen supporter of using local services. He comments, ‘Whilst my practice is now paper free we have a legacy of records that need to be securely stored. With space at a premium I wanted an archive solution that would meet my needs of both easy storage and retrievability, in a safe and secure location. I am a keen supporter of using local services when we need them and during the pandemic this has become even more important. We appreciate the personal service and prompt delivery of any documents we require from a supplier who is literally just “down the road” from us.’
As Lockdown comes to an end (and it will) we hope people will continue to open their eyes to the benefits of using local businesses, and not just those on the high street, but also the local businesses which offer a service that bring an essential personal touch which is only really possible when operating as an independent. This approach has worked really well for Filofile and we have seen the business grow organically thanks to a raft of personal recommendations. So if you are currently working from home and wondering if there wasn’t a better way to store all the piles of accumulated paperwork and documents that seem to always be part of a working office, take a look at Filofile and feel the benefit of supporting a local business as well as solving all your document management and storage problems at the same time. Don’t forget we can also deliver to your home office as well as to your office premises. Contact us today to find out more.
