When the Women and Infants Hospital of Rhode Island moved to a new building, they didnt have a tall order for their new patient records filing system; instead they had the opposite. The current mobile storage system couldnt fit in the new area because of its low ceiling clearance. Datum, who worked in conjunction with SYSTEMATICS (http://www.systematics.biz), a Datum Authorized Reseller, created a customized filing solution flexible enough to stay within the strict height requirements while still maximizing storage space.
The low ceiling height of the room required a mobile system that could adapt. Datum installed a MobileTrak3® system equipped with ThinStak® shelving. Heres how their new system breaks down:
The MobileTrak3® eliminates the need for aisles between shelving, reducing space by at least 50 percent. It also features a lower profile than most mobile systems that allows it to accommodate the hospitals low ceiling. Most importantly, the MobileTrak3®offers the ability to expand and grow as the hospitals storage needs do.
The ThinStak® is Datum's low profile shelving line. Its able to add an extra row of shelving in tight spaces which can increase the amount of files stored by more than 50 percent in 27 percent less floor space! And for the variety of files the hospital may need to store, the ThinStak® can be made to accommodate letter and legal files, X-ray jackets, books, binders, mammograms and more.
Combining Datums two unique product lines created a customized system able to accommodate the files that the hospital needed to store while staying within the hospitals height requirements for the lower ceiling clearance.

School Datebooks, Inc is a company that supplies schools from all across the nation with datebooks for their students. This volume of inventory requires a storage system able to handle the high density storage of over 70,000 datebooks. The companys current system of lateral files and industrial shelving was both disorganized and cumbersome. To update their storage, School Datebooks turned to Datum who combined two of its products, the MobileTrak3® and the 4Post to create a functional and versatile storage solution.
A MobileTrak3® System was installed to house the customer sample files that School Datebooks archives in their warehouse. The new system consolidates and better organizes the large amount of samples by moving the system into the office area which allows for faster and more efficient file access. The new system frees up space for new machinery and eliminates the need to build a larger warehouse.
Datum was very helpful in giving us multiple solutions up-front, changing the designs to our requests and installing our final solution on-time, said Jack Fiock, Production Director, School Datebooks, Inc.
This new storage system cleaned up the School Datebooks warehouse, organized their inventory and made space for new equipment. Most importantly, this storage system has the ability to grow as quickly as the companys future storage needs.

The phrase, the more the merrier, may not have been the first reaction to the storage dilemma caused by several municipalities moving in together in Auglaize, Ohio. These municipalities 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. But Datum Filing Solutions had the answer. They 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 the unique storage needs. The MobileTrak5® creates a single, moveable isle between shelves which requires less floor space than traditional shelving. This saves space while allowing for future file growth. Because the municipalities wanted to keep their existing top-tab files, Datum added rollout drawers that converted the 4Post Shelving into drawers that could store toptab 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.
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. At the end of the day it was a win-win situation where all the departments needs were met and can now function together seamlessly in their new space!
The Watertown Police Department recently completed the renovation of their new building, but their former freestanding shelving system proved to be less than adequate for keeping important files organized and protected. Datum, who worked in conjunction with SYSTEMATICS (http://www.systematics.biz), a Datum Authorized Reseller, helped to create a customized storage solution with safety, convenience and security in mind.
The Watertown Police Departments storage utilizes Datums MobileTrak® system that houses 4Post Shelving. Features include:
With the new MobileTrak® and 4Post Shelving, the Watertown Police Department improved the organization of their materials and now has ample capacity with room to grow! For more information check out the complete Profile of Success.

The University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine joined efforts with Datum to update their record storage system that was anything but user-friendly. Students used to file their confidential patient records in small lockers that lacked security and organization. By customizing an existing product, Datum created a whole new system that is tailored to meet the dental schools exact needs.
The ThruStak, a modified version of the TekStak storage system provided the perfect solution:
The Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine now has a locker room that any student would be excited to use. Most importantly, the ThruStak system allows dental students the opportunity to train in a facility where organization, security and efficiency are both taught and practiced!

Along with upgrading to a new building, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) decided to also upgrade their storage system. The new PennDOT Materials Testing Facility incorporated various Datum products into their media storage, including the 4Post, Stak-N-Lok, MobileTrak5® and Mail Master.
Datum combined a variety of storage solutions to create a customized answer to PennDOTs media storage problems. The previous system consisting of lateral and vertical files, bulk shelving, and archival boxes stored in various places was preventing efficiency and any sense of organization. PennDOT now has the versatility to store items from various departments in centralized areas, eliminating retrieval time and keeping materials orderly. The agency also received a Mail Master mail sorting system to help organize the public mail area.
The 4Post and Stak-N-Lok shelving provides storage for various items including books, letter and legal files, archival boxes, rolled files and CDs. And by installing the MobileTrak5® system, PennDOT minimized construction costs by consolidating storage areas and saving floor space.
Overall, the system is designed to anticipate the needs of future growth and expansion, allowing the agency years of use without having to spend additional money on updates or add-ons. Here at Datum, were both excited and proud to supply a Pennsylvania State Agency with the tools it needs to better serve the state!
Datum Filing has hit the Carribeanbut not for a vacation. Their TekStak Secure Storage System has helped a secondary education school to safely store their students laptops.
The El Dorado West Secondary School is the largest educational institution in the St. George East District of Trinidad and Tobago, an island state in the Caribbean. Recently, their government mandated that each student be assigned a laptop in an effort to enhance their learning experience. While this mandate is a much welcomed advancement in their curriculum, it posed the problem of how to safely store this valuable equipment.
The school needed a storage system that allowed laptops to be individually stored and students to only access the laptop assigned to them. Our TekStak locking storage cabinets not only met these requirements, but also offered several additional features the school hadnt thought of:
We worked closely with the school to stay within their budget and made sure the cabinets were received on time, even with international shipping! The well-engineered design and sturdy gauge of steel used in this units construction ensures the laptops will be protected for many years of use.

What used to be a small equipment room adjacent to Lower Merion High Schools gymnasium has now become the hub of school storage and school spirit. The Lower Merion Athletic Department recently partnered with Datum to install the MobileTrak3® System in their team equipment room, creating a stream-lined and organized space to keep their extracurricular sports equipment and uniforms.
One obstacle was finding storage spaces for equipment shaped as diversely as the sports theyre used for, but Datum had just the solution. They installed 4Post Shelving which can accommodate items of all shapes and sizes, from hanging and folded uniforms to helmets and balls. But the aspect of the systems design with the largest impact was the end panel graphics that feature the school emblem and mascot, Ace the Bulldog. The new system enhances Lower Merions team storage and team spirit.
The MobileTrak3® System that Datum provided for us was not only the perfect storage solution for our team equipment, it also embodied our school spirit with the custom colors and end panel graphics, said Don Walsh, Lower Merion High School Athletic Director.
