Space is at a premium today and many businesses pay over the odds for it. While this is sometimes unavoidable, better use of space can often create opportunities to reduce costs and increase productivity without the need to pay for expansion. Investing in high density storage is one obvious way to help get more from existing space. There are three key advantages to the use of high density storage when it comes to improving productivity.
1. Organising the space and facilitating searching
You might be very efficiently using the space available in volume terms but if the contents of that space are not well organised then there will be a negative impact on productivity. High density storage options provide a structured and simple way to bring organisation to any space.
Instead of relying on out of date methods, such as dusty old filing cabinets or boxes of documents or papers, high density storage is a simple way to categorise and organise the contents of the space. This has the potential to revolutionise the way that it is used. Rather than valuable time being spent searching in disorganised spaces, the order that is created via high density storage makes searching a more efficient and productive task.
2. Maximising the space available
High density storage effectively doubles the amount of useful space that is made available. It provides a wide range of options for organising an area, whether you’re looking to free up room or to accommodate more items. So, for example, the use of high density storage could halve the size of the space required to store certain papers or documents, making the rest of that area available for other productive uses.
There are a lot of options when it comes to how the additional space could be used, from adding facilities, such as a staff break room, to making space for additional desks or for tech connections that will speed up how the documents being stored can be used in operations. What high density storage effectively does is create options where there are currently none. It’s a very simple and straightforward way to get more from an existing space.
3. Improving productivity on site
When space is logically and efficiently used it tends to help employees stay on task. A badly organised storage space, for example, might feel demotivating and staff may stop to chat or complain to others when they go into the space to find something.
With the efficiency that high density storage offers, these kind of distractions can be avoided as staff are able to arrive in the space, complete the task and then return to their workstations, often without help or interruption. Ensuring that staff stay focused on the task in hand is one of the easiest ways to help improve productivity in any environment.
These are just three of the benefits that investing in high density storage can offer when it comes to boosting productivity. A new approach to storage can have a knock on impact on the efficiency across the rest of the business too.
