Saving time and money
Employing Shred-it’s secure on site or off site shredding services could save your business around 17% of the cost of destroying confidential documents yourself in-house.
Costs are a fundamental element of every business. Whether you are keeping a close eye on costs or looking to get the best value from third party suppliers, Shred-it can help.
Shredding confidential waste on site saves time, money and space. Whilst an employee can take up to 5 hours to shred 25 kgs of paper, Shred-it can do the same task in minutes with minimal disruption to your business.
Outsourcing your document destruction to Shred-it can actually save your business around 17% when compared to doing it yourself in-house. If you outsource there is no shredding equipment to buy and your staff can be freed up to work on more profitable tasks. So, whether you choose on site shredding, or off site shredding, Shred-it can save you both time and money.
Shred-it’s document destruction services can even help you save on space costs. Rather than paying rent on square footage or wasting valuable office space to store files you no longer need, by shredding you can free up that space to generate cash, not costs, for your business.
Document Destruction Protects Your Biggest Asset - Your Reputation
Research from the Department for Business, Enterprise & Regulatory Reform (BERR) reveals that the average total cost of a UK company's worst security breach can be between £10,000 and £20,000, with associated costs increasing exponentially with the size of the company. For large businesses (more than 250 staff), costs can range from £90,000 and £170,000, and for very large firms employing more than 500 staff, security breaches can cost between £1 million and £2 million.
But it’s not just the cost of a security breach that you need to consider. The biggest cost comes in the form of irreparable damage to your business’ reputation – something that has taken years to build. According to BERR’s survey, when incidents become known about externally, damage to reputation could cost larger businesses between £30,000 and £250,000.
