The Benefits of Recurring Shredding for Businesses
If you have a business, you probably have documents that need to be professionally shredded.
Keeping your company’s confidential information safe not only protects your business and your customers, it prevents you from having to deal with costly, time-consuming, and reputation-damaging security breaches due to improperly disposed-of documents.
Discarding sensitive documents by throwing them away or recycling them intact offers no protection for sensitive information and exposes a company to financial and legal consequences if that information falls into the wrong hands. Even using a consumer paper shredder doesn’t offer complete document destruction.
To be completely safe, businesses should use a professional shredding company like PROSHRED® Connecticut to securely destroy any unneeded documents. While PROSHRED® Connecticut offers one-time purge shredding in cases when you need to dispose of a large number of documents, the more practical, affordable, and secure method for most businesses is our on-going shredding service.
When you use PROSHRED®’s regularly scheduled shredding services, you won’t have to go through the inconvenience of calling us every time your piles of paper threaten to overwhelm your storage space, and you won’t be exposing your sensitive documents to mishandling, loss, or theft by keeping them in unsecured containers in your office.
When you use our scheduled shredding service, we come to your office to assess your shredding needs based on the size of your office, number of staff members, and the volume of documents you will need to destroy. We then determine how many containers you need and place the appropriately sized secure shredding bins at easily accessible areas throughout your office.
Once the secure shredding consoles are in place, you can simply place any materials designated for shredding in the containers. Your staff will no longer have to waste time and hurt their productivity by removing staples, paperclips, or bindings—we’ll take care of all that when we come to your office to shred the materials in our high-tech mobile shredding trucks.
You’ll also never need to worry about the security of your documents. All our shredding bins are locked and have one-way feed slots so documents can’t be removed once they are placed inside.
When we arrive at your location, our Customer Service Professionals empty your consoles into a locked cart and transport it to the truck for shredding. They then fasten the cart to the chute of the shredding truck and the cart is automatically lifted inside the truck.
Even though our Customer Service Professionals never directly handle your confidential documents, we still take the precaution of having all our staff members undergo a criminal background check, drug testing, and a thorough training program, and everyone is required to sign a Customer Confidentiality Agreement pledging to safeguard each customer’s sensitive materials.
PROSHRED® Connecticut knows that keeping your confidential documents safe is crucial to your business, and our recurring shredding service is a solution you can trust.
