International office rents are on the rise. Here’s how to best utilise your office storage capacity.

February 12, 2018


From Chicago to Shanghai and Bangkok to Sydney, office rental costs around the globe are increasing. Rental prices make up a large amount of a business’s fixed monthly costs. If you’re a small business owner struggling to turn a profit, you need to account for every dollar. So what is the solution? How can you avoid upsizing to a larger office? One option is to utilise your floor space more efficiently.

Traditional office filing vs. mobile systems

Office filing systems are typically unattractive, bulky storage systems that consume valuable square meterage of floor area. Even worse, they’re an eyesore for visiting clients. While traditional filing systems aren’t known for their looks or compactness, times are changing. It all starts with a set of tracks installed on your office floor.

Mobile office filing systems are designed to save space, which can help you utilise your office floor area more efficiently, potentially reducing costs. But that’s not all they offer! Mobile filing systems can offer organised office storage, secured confidential files, and provide easy access to your files so you or your staff don’t have to waste time searching for them.

As you can see from the image above, mobile office filing systems bring a clean, organised appearance to your office. With the correct design and specifications, you can reduce the overall usage of your office floor area compared to a traditional filing system. Think of all the possibilities….

You can squeeze in another employee or two, potentially add a break room, or even lighten up the space with some plants. While it’s easy to get excited about the possibilities, there’s one small problem to address.

Aren’t filing systems unattractive in nature?

It’s true. Traditional filing systems, typically coloured in a boring steel or light grey colour, aren’t known for their beauty. Today’s mobile filing systems, however, are anything but an eyesore. They can be colourful, chic, or imprinted with your logo.

The designs of mobile filing systems enable them to be integrated seamlessly into your office. In fact, they can even showcase your unique brand personality, hence storage units no longer need to be hidden away in a storage room, they can now be fully integrated into the office design layout and environment.
