Banks take shredding very seriously, as can be witnessed by the number of banks that contract companies such as Adera for their own shredding requirements.
A further testament to the banking world’s belief in shredding is the number that team up with companies such as Adera to conduct free shredding for the bank’s customers.
You may have asked yourself, "How can our bank show customers the importance of securing themselves against identity theft, and give them something from the bank and demonstrate how seriously we take the issue of confidentiality?"
Some of Adera’s bank clients have answered that question by arranging for Adera to periodically be at the bank for a couple of hours on a Saturday morning to shred free for the bank’s customers. Others have provided secure shredding containers for the use of bank clients within the bank.
It costs very little to do, and can create a lot of goodwill.
You also told us, “We like to see the same people, at the same time, every time.”
And you stressed that that one of the most important aspects of the shredding service Adera provides to banks is consistency of service and operational personnel. Banks do get robbed occasionally, which is why it is so important to be recognizable to all of the staff at the bank, and to consistently execute the service they expect.
Having the same shredding personnel servicing the bank, dressed in the same uniform, with up-to-date ID badges is imperative.
Another thing we have learned that bank’s like is our ability to process the largest containers, quickly and efficiently. Not every shredding company has shredding trucks that can automatically lift and shred the contents of a 95-gallon container, typically used for the collection of processed checks.
All Adera’s trucks can handle these monsters easily, and shred the contents in under three minutes, therefore keeping the time on-site to a minimum, and eliminating office disruption.
