When B. Reed Henderson High School introduced a BYOD policy and began allowing students to bring their laptops, tablets, and other electronics to school, the new policy created a new need for students to have a secure place to store their devices when they weren’t being used.
East Georgia College was looking for an individual storage solution for dormitory students to store their laptops and other valuables within the limited space of their dorm rooms.

Following a sizable merger, a U.S. refinery needed to find space within its corporate facility for 80 additional workstations and corresponding files. The department expanded to include seven work groups that all needed convenient central access to corporate tax documents. Previously, the department relied on lateral files, rotary cabinets, and vertical filing cabinets to manage its file storage needs, but with the addition of the workstations and limited floor space, the client needed a new alternative.
Since 1865, the Montana Historical Society has been building and preserving one of the nation’s oldest historic collections. By 2014, that collection had stretched to seven miles’ worth of precious records and artifacts stored on open shelves. The shelving system left items vulnerable to damage and dust and made poor use of the society’s space.
Record keeping is a never-ending challenge for municipalities, and Northampton County in eastern Pennsylvania is no exception. In addition to the usual document storage, Northampton County houses an extensive historical archive stretching back more than 250 years. In 2004, the County ran out of space for its growing archives and turned to off-site storage for some of their files.
To maximize the existing space, individual workstations were reduced in size and lateral files at individual workstations were eliminated. Datum installed two MobileTrak5® high-density mobile storage systems to replace the previous file storage units and to expand file storage capacity for the entire department within the existing footprint.
The South Windsor Police Department needed to increase the storage capacity of their records department.

The City of Schenectady in New York is in the middle of economic growth, and as the city has grown, so has its police department.
With this growth and the everyday need to collect and store evidence and property, the Schenectady Police Department set out to find a long-term solution. The Police Department instituted a bar code system for all of its property and evidence. To build on this system and its current storage facility, the Department needed help in the planning, development, and installation of a comprehensive storage system.
