Three Reasons You Should Sell Your Filing Cabinet on eBay

Ever since Henry Brown invented and patented the world’s first filing cabinet in 1886, it has been an absolute must-have for all offices everywhere. In fact, take a look around you right now. Can you see one? If you’re at work, you probably can.

Now, don’t get me wrong – it’s great that Henry Brown’s invention is still going strong more than 130 years later! But we’re in an age of robotics, space flights and digital wow… so if you work in HR, and you’re using a filing cabinet, do you not think that there might be a better way to do it?

So, it’s time you put your filing cabinet on eBay and take a look at the three ways People™ helps you free up more floor space:

1. Easily Organise Employee Records

Forget about those little lettered tabs you insert into your cabinet drawers to keep employee files in neat alphabetical order. With People™, you can access any employee record within seconds, simply by typing their name into your browser.

2. Take All Company Documents and Contracts Everywhere You Go

How many times have you been away from your desk and somebody has asked you for something that lives in your filing cabinet? With People™, all of documents are stored securely in the cloud, meaning you can access them on any device, no matter where in the world you are.

3. Keep Everything Under Lock and Key

Does your filing cabinet have a little padlock to stop prying eyes glimpsing confidential company records? With People™, you can customise who has access to what – and everything is held safely under lock and key in fully ISO-compliant data centres. Find out more here:
