Datum created a customized storage solution to meet the needs of multiple departments within one storage space.

“Datum was able to work with the Auglaize municipalities and meet their various storage needs by combining several of our product lines to create a truly customized solution,” said Thomas Potter, President of Datum.

Several municipalities in Auglaize, Ohio were relocating to a newly constructed building where their individual file collections had to converge into a joint filing room. Combining multiple departments’ storage needs into a single system created an organizational dilemma. Datum Filing Solutions combined several products to create a single, stream-lined storage system that addressed the individual needs of each department.

Datum utilized both stationary shelving and a MobileTrak5® System with 4Post™ Shelving to meet their unique storage needs. The MobileTrak5® creates a single, moveable aisle between shelves which requires less floor space than traditional shelving. This saves space while allowing for future file capacity requirements. Datum worked to meet the requests of each of the municipalities. Since they wanted to keep their existing top-tab files, Datum added roll out drawers that converted the 4Post™ Shelving, designed for end–tab files, into drawers for top–tab files.

Datum also added EZ Roller Shelves to accommodate the municipalities’ large ledger books. The EZ Roller Shelves maintain the integrity of the books by eliminating damage caused from regular shelf storage, preserving them for years to come.

“Datum was able to work with the Auglaize municipalities and meet their various storage needs by combining several of our product lines to create a truly customized solution,” said Thomas Potter, President of Datum.

Although consolidating the records of separate municipalities at first seemed like a problem for Auglaize County, the new system from Datum easily and efficiently combined multiple file collections into one. The municipalities saved both money and time by keeping their top-tab file system. Additionally, the new system allows the municipalities to better organize their new space and prepare for future growth.

Founded in 1968, Datum Filing is a second generation family-owned company that supplies storage and filing systems to meet almost any need. Starting with simple, desktop organization products, Datum has since grown into a 120,000 square foot facility located in Emigsville, Pennsylvania. There they supply over 20 product lines for a variety of organization and storage needs. To learn more about Datum Filing Systems and its products, please visit: http://www.datumfiling.com.
