Case Study: Create File Archiving System


Emerald Business Bureau was approached by a successful Construction Dispute Consultant who provides commercial advice, quantity surveying and legal support services. The company needed help to create a logical, secure and future-proof document archiving system to improve efficiency. Several years of paperwork and document files were stored in a back office without a structured filing system and a great deal of time and resources were being wasted searching for documents. New GDPR regulations meant it was also a priority to review the documents held and destroy any which were no longer required.

Our Role

Creation and ongoing maintenance of robust File Archiving System

How We Helped

  • Physically examined and organised the contents of all archived document boxes
  • Created a robust Archive Register which is easy to maintain and use as a reference tool
  • Created a logical indexing system for all archived files
  • Arranged the secure off-site destruction of files anddocuments no longer required by law
  • Ongoing responsibility for keeping the Archive Register up-to-date, destruction of old files, and ensuring completed projects are filed and archived correctly.

Our Client Says

When I set up my business in 2011, the recession was still biting, and I initially used Emerald Business Bureau’s virtual assistant services to keep costs down. Several years on, and with a business that has grown significantly, I am still using Emerald Business Bureau as the administration arm of my business. I believe the highly skilled, flexible and cost-effective service they provide represents the future of administration, particularly for SME’s.
