Colorado Springs (PRWEB) January 17, 2007
RealTime Shredding, Inc., developer of the first self-service shredding kiosk, has added wireless remote monitoring to its flagship offering, The Self-Service Shredder.
The new Enterprise Model, designed for business centers and corporations with multiple locations, allows a company to monitor and manage The Self-Service Shredder kiosks remotely. With a wireless Internet connection, purchasers or lessors of The Self-Service Shredder can monitor use, obtain reports, and change software functions for each kiosk.
With a network of self-service shredding kiosks, managers can aggregate information and easily determine changes to make each location as productive as possible, explains Amanda Verrie, president of RealTime Shredding. "Wireless capability will be very helpful for those who do dynamic route planning management," she adds.
The Self-Service Shredder cross-cut shreds paper, cardboard, credit cards, paper clips, staples, CDs, DVDs, and floppy disks. The industrial-strength shredder, featuring multiple control points for maximum safety, can shred up to 200 sheets of paper a minute. Depending on the model purchased, The Self-Service Shredder will accept access codes and/or cash. Each customer can program the kiosk for the time/cost package they want to offer.
The Self-Service Shredder is a great step forward in preventing identity theft, says Verrie. Identity theft is now the fastest-growing crime in the United States, according to the National Crime Prevention Council. Last year, more than 9.3 million Americans were the victims of identity theft, resulting in losses to individuals, businesses, and government of $52.6 billion. The Self-Service Shredder helps businesses comply with HIPAA and FACTA document destruction re¬quirements, and ability to see material shredded in real time eliminates worries about personal information being lost or stolen.
RealTime Shredding, Inc. (http://www.realtimeshredding.com) develops and markets The Self-Service Shredder as the nation's first self-service shredding kiosk designed specifically for consumers and businesses. The Self-Service Shredder provides a fast, convenient way to shred documents and other materials. Based in Colorado Springs, the woman-owned and -operated company offers multiple kiosk models and options, with purchase, revenue-sharing, and lease plans available.
