Well-functioning outsourcing procedure

Collection from your premises or deposit of the archives by you in our logistics centres. In both cases you will receive a pick-up receipt from our warehouse staff. This is the first step in tracing your box.

(Optional) inventory of the contents with transcription of the latter in Excel. The exact contents of the box are noted on a list which can then be converted into an Excel version for easier retrieval. If you carry out this step yourself, you will receive a free start-up and advice from our specialists. This inventory phase is essential because it makes it easier to find your documents.

Putting a unique identification number on the box. The number applied to the box and recorded in the inventory is unique for each box. It usually consists of a year, a service number and a part number. This is the most common nomenclature, but our system is very flexible and can be adapted to any nomenclature, whether it is 100% numeric, 100% alphabetic or a mix of alphanumeric. Our system is so flexible that if your boxes already have their own identification, we can follow it and stock your boxes without having to change your system or your habits. Moreover, we put your unique customer number on your boxes.

Coding of the box in our computer system. When your box is in stock, our warehouse staff will integrate it into our software. This software manages our stock and allows us to know at any time the number of boxes that belong to you, whether they are in stock or being consulted at your premises or at a third party’s (accountant, branch, etc.). This is the third security for tracking your documents.

Store your box in the storage area dedicated to your business. Once all the steps are completed, your box is taken to your storage facility. It is important to know that we work with “SHA’s”, which stands for “Dedicated Storage Areas”. This means that we assign an area to your stock and all your boxes stay together.
