Commercial shredding vs in-house shredding..
Part of a £100million agency network, Epoch delivers innovative, challenging and effective in-store branding, communications and support for some of the world’s biggest FMCG brands. Prior to outsourcing shredding services to Datashred, Epoch’s confidential waste was shredded in-house, using a commercial office shredder.
This was not only time consuming and inefficient, it also meant that the company didn’t have a complete audit trail for their confidential waste, or secure containers for storing the waste on site.
Nikesh Vyas , finance director at Epoch Design said “Having to shred our documents using our slow shredding machine took up a lot of valuable time, not only because we could only shred a few sheets of paper at a time, but also we still had to empty the shredder, and dispose of the shredded paper afterwards. It was too messy and became a real distraction."
More than document shredding
Having decided to outsource the shredding process, the agency set about finding the right supplier for the job.
They were also impressed with the range of services on offer. Restore Datashred not only provides data destruction services, but also IT recycling, office recycling, product destruction, and a whole host of services from the wider Group.
Datashred’s services have given Epoch Design a good platform from which to start the planned ISO 14001 accreditation process.
