Managing records and document based information remains critical to an organization’s efficiency.


It is estimated that 90% of an organization’s information is printed on paper, so managing documents and file folders properly is essential.  The efficiency with which an organization performs its core business functions is dependent on the organization’s ability to access information filed in their filing system.  McMurray Stern helps businesses organize their filing systems and file folders so that they can find the correct file folder when they need it.

McMurray Stern provides color coded filing supplies and end tab filing equipment that work in harmony with one another to make retrieval and refiling documents easy and accurate.  By applying our systematic color coded filing methods, you will be able to efficiently organize and manage your files to increase personnel productivity and save valuable floor space.



The Association of Records Managers and Administrators [ARMA] has long reported that the retrieval of files, misplacement of files, tracking of files, and overall management of files have all been linked to significant operational expense. We understand this, and know how to recommend solutions to improve the efficiency of your filing operation – Implement a color-coded records management system, and reduce file retrieval times by 40-65 percent.

It doesn’t matter if you are filing numerically, alphabetically, terminal digit, or any other type of system – Color-coding virtually eliminates misfiles!

The traditional method of manually applying individual color bands to the end tab of a file is both tedious and costly. With an On-Demand Label Print System from McMurray Stern, you can dramatically improve this process by printing and applying a single strip label with data imported from your computer.
