The appointment forms part of the centralisation of Seetec's document disposal policy and overall management via its Essex-based headquarters. Located throughout the UK, Seetec's 50 offices will receive scheduled on-site shredding and recycling services from The Shredding Alliance (theshreddingalliance.co.uk) to guarantee compliance with the Data Protection Act and ISO27001:2005, the International standard in Information Security.
Alan Flay, Information Security Manager at Seetec, comments: "All of our staff handle highly confidential, personal information on a daily basis, the security of document disposal has always been high on Seetec's agenda. In the past document disposal has been dealt with effectively via local level solutions. However, like most businesses Seetec is dedicated to driving efficiencies throughout operations, so wanted to partner with a confidential document disposal service provider that could offer nationwide coverage."
As part of its standard service, The Shredding Alliance undertook a free appraisal of Seetec's business operations and as a result, a phased implementation strategy was put in place. This ensured that correct service level benchmarks were set, dependent on the size and requirements of each individual office, before the shredding service was rolled out nationwide.
Daniel Hawtin, managing director, TSA explains: "We aim to provide a completely flexible service for all our multi-site customers that not only guarantees compliance with the Data Protection Act but is cost effective. All TSA shredding trucks are fitted with legal for trade scales, so we are able to accurately weigh the amount of waste paper handled at each location to ensure the right level of service, something that was important to Seetec.
Formed by a number of the UK's leading independent document shredding and recycling companies, The Shredding Alliance is a unique service proposition which aims to deliver improved customer experience, increased response times and better value for money to nationwide and multi-site organisations.
