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.
Datum Preserves History with Archival Storage
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.
For years, museums, records departments, libraries and other organizations have relied on bulky, cumbersome storage solutions like vertical filing cabinets to protect and organize valuable documents, books and other items of historical importance. From renting additional storage space to building extensions onto their archives, many facilities have been faced with finding a practical answer to their growing storage needs.
