Having an organised office space can have a significant impact on productivity. But with the accumulation of tech hardware and accessories, you end up with tangled-up wires and cables that clutter your office table and lay strewn around the floor.
If you run a small or medium-size business, there are ways to maintain a clean work environment without breaking the budget. From USB extension cables to storage cabinets there are some simple but useful ideas to keep your appliances and tech gadgets in your new office space organised and in top form.
Use proper storage for everything
Designate a proper place to put your office supplies and stationery items such as pens, pencils, notepads, sticky notes, highlighters, calculators, etc. Use a magnetic holder to store your paper clips, staples and pins.
If you have a desk with drawers or storage cabinets, you could neatly stash all the small items inside. You can designate your shelves for different items, such as one for your files, another for office stationery and so on.
Organise your cables
With the rise of technology, there has been an increase in the use of wires and cables used in an office. In addition to being a safety hazard, these unappealing cables can make your office space feel more disorganised.
One way to de-clutter your cables is by using a computer cable assembly to create a clutter-free, wireless workplace. Another way is to make use of a pluggable docking station that comes with USB slots to connect your computer peripherals easily. This way you can manage cable clutter by getting rid of all those extra wires. The pluggable docking station can be connected to your computer by one cable which in turn can be connected to many other peripherals at the same time including monitors, keyboard, mouse, network access, headphones, etc.
How many times have you faced a situation where you did not have a free socket to charge your gadget?
If you need to charge multiple devices but do not have enough charging points or sockets, invest in a charging station with multiple USB outlets. Charge your phones and gadgets without a bunch of wires tangled under your office table.
Vertical laptop stand
A vertical laptop stand not only frees up space but also provides some ergonomic comfort. These laptop stands are portable and so you can store your laptop once your work is done, freeing a lot of space. It also keeps your laptop upright from falling and getting damaged.
Cable management systems are available from concealed boxes that can be kept under your desks to keep all of your computer cords from dangling, to cable organisers that bunch everything together and cable boxes that hide your power strips.
USB extension cables are easily available in the market in a range of dimensions, shapes, capacities, IP ratings and colours for several purposes.
