Reducing Floor Space & Increasing Productivity
With the amount of money your company spends on useable office space, you’ll need to seriously consider the most effective way to store and retrieve your different types of media. Optimizing your office to create more meeting rooms, add more work stations, and increase overall productivity will pay dividends in the long run. Performance and productivity are key criteria to keep in mind when you’re evaluating storage systems. A Kardex Lektriever carousel addresses both criteria – reducing storage floor space and increasing productivity.
Using Cubic Volume to Reduce Storage Floor Space
Storage capacity within a system is essential to reducing the floor space required for storage, and there can be a dramatic variance between the capacities of different solution types. Because the Kardex Lektriever carousel takes advantage of cubic volume and not square area, it has a higher storage capacity.
The Lektriever can be built right up to ceiling height, and when considered at the design stages of a building, can even be built to extend through a number of floors while maintaining the same footprint. Compared to other solutions, the Kardex Lektriever carousel is one of the most efficient in terms of linear storage inches per square foot of floor space – up to twice as efficient as drawer and lateral cabinets.
Automate Storage & Retrieval to Increase Productivity
Productivity can simply be measured by establishing how long it takes for users to access key information or retrieve certain items. If there an unnecessary amount of non-productive activity (i.e. walking around the office, bending or stretching, moving items out of the way) to carry out the task, productivity goes down.
By introducing automation in filing and storage, the Kardex Lektriever carousel enables tasks to be carried out from one centralized location, without the need to move away from the workstation. Time and motion studies show that productivity gains of over 100 percent are experienced by users of Lektrievers, when compared to manual systems such as drawer and lateral cabinets.
