Vertical storage and retrieval systems support sustainability
Sustainability has brought a positive change for law firms, connecting the legal industry with vertical storage and retrieval systems for managing files. Sustainability has led many firms to not only embrace change but put more environmentally-sound strategies to the test when practicing law. The vertical storage and retrieval systems replace old, static filing cabinets and drawers with an automated solution for managing files. The systems are good for the environment because they support sustainability using less space for increased storing capacity. This is accomplished because they effectively decrease the actual room needed to store files and more by maximizing “floor to truss” space. See vertical storage and retrieval systems in action.
Vertical storage and retrieval systems boost productivity
Vertical storage and retrieval systems support sustainability using less space because they strategically and effectively make more productive use out of normally idle overhead space. This creates an environment which can be modified to accommodate ergonomic requirements for optimal user ability. In addition, because they require less physical exertion from their operator to function, productivity is boosted by up to 160 percent. Movements such as bending, pulling, pushing, reaching, twisting, and stopping are easily reduced because of how the systems work. Everything from case files and literature to evidence and periodicals is presented to the operator in an ergonomic fashion with just the push of an electrically-controlled button or scan of a bar code. When activated, a series of vertically positioned shelves move in a rotating motion and deliver stored materials to an adjustable work surface that is ADA compliant and accessible while standing or seated. Productivity is further enhanced with the help of features such as a position light. It pinpoints the exact item to be picked, making the retrieval process simpler and more accurate.
Vertical storage and retrieval systems keep data safe
Vertical storage and retrieval systems also serve to keep data safe. Items kept in the systems are protected from possible tampering with the help of security doors that run automatically. Materials can only be accessed from approved shelves by entering a unique user four-digit pin code. And, the system prevents random access, because it only runs when its doors are securely closed. Vertical storage and retrieval systems support sustainability using less space for increased storing capacity and enhanced productivity.
