We speak to many businesses, large and small, which have a problem with document storage. With paper document archives stored on-site, they’re fast running out of space in their offices. And for digital archives, they’re compromised by the size of their computer server. What’s more, it ends up expensive to keep document archives in their offices, as rents in central London and other city centres only ever seem to rise. But many organisations are nervous about offsite storage when they need regular or even daily access to documents. What options are available?
Live file storage, Off-site but not out of sight
Help is at hand with CAS’s live file storage solutions. This allows our clients to store their documents offsite but to work with them on a continuing basis through secure online access. With our fully hosted live-file storage system, records that are in constant use can be retrieved, updated and returned to storage 24/7.
We offer maximum flexibility and ease of access to your files. CAS’s online file storage system comes with customised search criteria. Authorised personnel can access records remotely from anywhere in the UK. This is delivered by an advanced and totally secure, password-protected online portal. All of our clients’ needs are different, and we pride ourselves on catering to your specific requirements.
Securely stored, readily available: make your archive dynamic
Security is our watchword in all our off-site storage services. All your documents are stored in high-security, fire-proofed warehousing. Our storage facilities have gated perimeter fences, 24/7 security patrols and advanced CCTV. Entry to the warehouses within these facilities is controlled with vandal-proof fingerprint access terminals. Environmental controls and advanced fire protection systems are fitted throughout.
Moreover, all CAS document-handling and security staff have been checked by the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS, formerly the Criminal Records Bureau or CRB). They can quickly and accurately locate your documents wherever they are in our warehouses, whenever you need them. And they know the importance of ensuring that you meet all your data protection requirements. We’re already prepared for the General Data Protection Requirement (GDPR) which comes into force in May 2018.
