The utopia of the paperless office is a long time in the future so for now It is crucial to have a document management system for all your office papers to make them easy to retrieve, store and use on the move.  The Advantia buying group own brand unique delivers fit for purpose, best value filing and storage products.  Well known brands, including Eastlight, Twinlock, Concord and Bantex, offer filing products with additional useful features and options.

Files and Binders

London and Counties offer a number of methods of keeping papers in order and easy to find in a multitude of colours to accommodate subject categorisation.  Use a simple square cut plain folder, or document wallet, ideal for small amounts of paperwork and often used in suspension or lateral filing, or for easy insertion, re-arranging or removal of papers, a spiral transfer file with a metal spring mechanism that acts as a sorting ring. 

The decision on which type of binder to use will depend on the intended use and preference for a ring binder or lever arch file.  Both types have many sizes and colour-ways to co-ordinate with office interiors, or corporate styles, but the lever arch file has the greater storage capacity and its lockspring mechanism makes it an easier binder to retrieve papers.
