In modern policing, crimes labs play a crucial role in an officer’s caseload. Collecting information and interrogating witnesses or suspects can only do so much. With science on their side, public safety officials can use all the information at their disposal. But to do so, their crime labs need the very best resources, including smart storage capabilities.
Getting the facts straight
The heart of any police investigation lies in the paperwork. Recordkeeping might not be glamorous, but intricate and organized filing makes a difference to the men and women trying to do their jobs, right wrongs and help the public.
Apart from static filing options, crime lab storage can also includes Quadral Lateral moveable units, which combine adjustable shelving with drawers and cabinets arranged at the owner’s discretion. Lab technicians can line loose files traditionally and stack boxed casework in the same piece of hardware.
Best of all, the open-ended nature of smart storage solutions allows laboratories to apply their house filing style to the installation instead of rewriting their preferences based on the limitations of a prefabricated rack or shelf. This gives lab techs and the officers they work alongside the organizational backup they need to stay one step ahead.
Locking down what matters
Crime labs typically test evidence to determine any underlying data that might otherwise go unseen by the naked eye. If these materials go missing or end up damaged, it could drastically alter the outcome of a case, if there’s even still a case to be had.
Any crime lab storage worth its salt will need advanced security technology. For short-term evidence, crime labs can choose between mechanical or digital locker options. Mechanical evidence lockers give any lab technician the ability to deposit, but only a select few can hold the master key to reopen it once it’s closed. Alternatively, digital evidence lockers open and close using cutting-edge biometric fingerprint scanners. This grants entry only to an elite few without compromising ease of access.
Long-term storage affords departments with even more storage space, giving crime labs the power to hang onto a greater catalog of evidence. To prevent holding time from jeopardizing the integrity of materials integral to an ongoing investigation, both of these storage solutions include air-tight seals and solid construction.

Saving every necessary resource
Forensic specialists utilize a host of equipment to examine evidence, but that doesn’t necessarily mean they’ve got space for everything they need. Beyond the technical, these investigators handle a library of chemicals and compounds. Justice waits for no man, and a time-sensitive case can’t wait around for something out-of-stock to be refilled.
Mobile storage promotes a robust inventory, one that isn’t hampered by disorganization but retains the highest amount of products in the smallest space possible. Removing aisles takes half of what was once a storage area and transforms it into a sleek, optimized workstation. With additional mechanical or digital locking mechanisms, mobile crime lab storage can fulfill security expectations at every level.
Insurance is a simple enough concept to grasp, but a single company may require millions of pieces of data to perform its job. To estimate policy costs, rate changes and deductibles, insurance companies and their underwriters assess countless bits of information to fulfill their requirements as well as meet their bottom lines. As such, reliable storage solutions offer a hand to an industry so entrenched in accumulating as much intelligence as possible. Smart insurance storage supplies company paperwork with affordable and practical shelving options to maximize any provider’s claims library.
“How an insurance provider collects, records and stores information ultimately dictates its efficiency.”
The changing nature of insurance information
How an insurance provider collects, records and stores information ultimately dictates the efficiency of its operation. However, no two providers are alike. Some look to the cutting edge, trusting innovation to evolve their organizational techniques. Others prefer a time-tested system based on tried-and-true techniques for filing claims.
SmartShelf technology is right for both. Its versatile mechanics can scale organically to fit whatever insurers demand. They’re simple enough to reconfigure to adapt to in-house filing styles, but also flexible enough to update those styles in ways insurers might not have thought previously possible. No more settling for prefabricated shelving that makes businesses work around a limited design. Instead, insurers should think of shelving as another employee, who must meet the standards already set in place.
Additionally, as insurers begin processing more and more data, virtual indexes will eventually eclipse physical ones. However, hard copies will still have their place as a method for data recovery. As such, insurance providers may be looking for ways to shrink their overall filing space while leaving enough room for new technology. Mobilex mobile storage reduces an insurer’s filing footprint by 50 percent without compromising on access right when employees need it. The additional space can be used for servers, as well as an extra Mobilex unit or two to accommodate new business.
Balancing risk and reward with storage solutions
Insurance is the business of risk assessment, not risk avoidance. Insuring a fancy motorcycle against theft doesn’t mean no one will try to steal it. Insuring a beach house against flooding won’t stop the tides from rising. No matter what kind of plan a policyholder has, it doesn’t protect him or her from disaster, just the financial burden in the aftermath. However, to keep those figures square, insurance companies have to do their best to protect and preserve customer data for as long as possible.
Smart insurance storage, however, can help insurers defend their interests against the ravages of time. By investing in shelving options with customizable, fitted attachments designed with an insurer’s unique business in mind, this opportunity ensures a company will be able to retain information year after year without worrying about degradation or misplaced claims. In turn, customers will never be left in a lurch after a tragedy befalls them, and insurance providers will never run the risk of losing clients because of disorganization.
