We are about to say goodbye to another successful year for Box-it Central. We are pleased to say that Box-it, as a group, continues to go from strength to strength, and on a local level we are certainly mirroring that in terms of growth and performance.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is definitely keeping us busy, with increased demand for our services across the board (in particular, our cataloguing and scanning/digitisation services) the latter of which can be supported by our secure repository for digital storage, Omnidox Document Manager. If you haven’t read about this latest innovation from Box-it, we urge you to do so!
While ‘all things digital’ become ever-more important, we cannot (and will not) forget that many of our clients still have to store, track and manage their paper records. And, that is why Omnidox Records Manager is such a handy (and secure) web-based system for taking centralised control of your physical records. Its many features support GDPR compliance.
Away from our core business services, our team at Central have been pulling out all the stops to support our nominated charity, which as many of you will know, is The Myton Hospices. We simply can’t praise their wonderful work enough.
We have supported some national charities too, including a barbecue breakfast for staff in November, served up by our very own Les and Emlyn Evans kitted out in Pudsey bandanas, in aid of Children in Need. This, along with some other activities during the day, raised £300.
The good work continues. December’s events have a distinctively ‘Christmassy’ theme for a spot of festive fundraising for The Myton Hospices. We even have our own Christmas tree here at Central, where staff can hang a tag in memory of a loved one throughout December in return for a small donation to support The Myton Hospices. It’s our personal take on Myton Hospice’s ‘Light up a Life’ event, and of course very poignant at this time.
There’s fun to be had too with our festive fundraisers, such as the Christmas Jumper Day on 22nd December which always gains a few laughs. We’ll let you know how much we’ve raised in our next newsletter.
Finally, we are saddened to share the news of the passing of Keith Evans, family member and co-director of the business. The foundations that he built continue to provide Box-it with a wonderful platform from which it continues to develop and he will be greatly missed.
We would like to say a huge thank you to all our clients for your continued business and for the support you have shown in donating to our charitable activities. We really do appreciate it.
From the team at Box-it Central, we wish you all a very Happy Christmas and send our best wishes for 2018.
