Sec­tor em­braces ar­chiv­ing help

The Australian Education Reporter - - SCHOOL MANAGEMENT - NA­TIONAL

A SMART space-sav­ing so­lu­tion to stor­ing doc­u­ments is help­ing clean up the ed­u­ca­tion sec­tor’s ar­chiv­ing prob­lems.

The patented stor­age sys­tem made in Aus­tralia by Archive Man­age­ment has re­ceived an over­whelm­ing re­sponse since the com­pany fo­cused on be­com­ing an ed­u­ca­tion spe­cial­ist over the past five years.

“Our sys­tem can store dou­ble the pa­per­work us­ing the same space when com­pared with tra­di­tional boxes on shelves, so it’s a com­pelling so­lu­tion,” Archive Man­age­ment di­rec­tor Dun­can Macmil­lan said.

Mr Macmil­lan said their growth in the sec­tor has meant the com­pany has been able to con­tin­u­ally tai­lor its ser­vices to the needs of ed­u­ca­tion providers, now mak­ing up ap­prox­i­mately half of the com­pany’s to­tal ac­tiv­ity.

“There’s been a nat­u­ral de­mand for our ser­vices in ed­u­ca­tion over the past 30 years, but we’ve been thrilled by the re­sponse as we started en­gag­ing di­rectly with our school cus­tomers,” he said.

Mr Macmil­lan be­lieves that Archive Man­age­ment’s core of­fer­ing, an ef­fi­cient sys­tem of su­per-strong stack­able front-open­ing boxes, is a nat­u­ral fit for the in­dus­try.

“The sec­tor faces pa­per stor­age prob­lems like any­one else - there’s a re­quire­ment to keep im­por­tant records at hand and ac­cess them eas­ily when they’re needed, but space is at a pre­mium,” he said.

An­other strong draw­card has been the in­stal­la­tion and doc­u­ment mi­gra­tion ser­vices pro­vided.

“So many schools don’t have the time or labour to tidy up and prop­erly cat­a­logue their mount­ing archives - it’s a headache we can take away,” he said.
