Use Cork Boards For Fresh Ideas
If you have an idea, you want somewhere you can quickly write it out and keep a record. But in disorganized offices, if you write something down, there’s a good chance that you’ll lose it.
The solution is to use a cork board: a board on the wall where you can stick your ideas as and when you have them.
Sellotape a box of pins to the bottom corner of the board so that you always have a way of fixing up your board.
Go All Out On Shelving
Another issue your office might be suffering from is a lack of shelving. This is a particularly common problem in offices that service businesses who still have to primarily deal in paper, rather than digital records. Shelving can sometimes be a bit aesthetically boring, but new CNC routed plywood help bring the whole concept up to date. Routed plywood looks great in practically any office setting, but especially those that incorporate modern themes. Fill an entire wall with shelving if you have to: just make sure you’ve got enough space for all your files.
Scan Your Receipts
Perhaps the worst folder in any business is the receipts folder. It’s practically impossible to keep it organized, and doing so is often a labor of love. The good news is that accounting software has moved on considerably since the early 2000s. Machine learning and intelligent algorithms mean that it is now possible to scan receipts into the computer and for the computer to interpret and record the information contained on the receipt. The amazing thing about this technology is that it can understand receipts that have been scrawled out in human handwriting, meaning no more annoying transcribing either.
Create Activity Zones
Offices and factories don’t appear to have much in common on the surface, other than people work in them. But dig a little deeper, and you soon come across similarities - well, sometimes.
One of those similarities is the idea of zoning. Factories are zoned into separate areas for different tasks. There might be one area for welding and another for taking delivery of raw materials. Offices need to think along similar lines. They need areas for packing, computer work, and meetings. Doing all of the above in one space is a recipe for disaster.
