Colour Coded

Using a colour-coded filing method can reduce your retrieval time by 40%. Pioneered by TAB, colour-coded filing forms an identifiable pattern that gets you to your information faster. Misfiles break the pattern, allowing for easy identification and immediate correction.

Based on the number of files and the information to be organized, Pathfinder/TAB can design the optimal colour-coded indexing method for your specific situation. Colour-coded indexing methods include alphabetic, numeric, alphanumeric, terminal digit and even standard identifiers to your specific industry. The right colour coded indexing system will virtually eliminate misfiles, improve retrieval times and increase efficiency.
