Faster Filing Begins With The
Allied Alpha Kolor (AAK) Filing® Method

The AAK Filing® method is the recommended way to file charts in a majority of offices. The AAK Filing® method is a random alpha system developed more than 30 years ago. Compared to straight alphabetic color coded filing systems, the AAK Filing® method benefits are:
• File by Color – Not Alphabetical
• 80% Faster Filing
• 50% Faster File Retrieval
• No Misfiles
• Quick Location of Out-of-File Charts
• Effortless Purging of Inactive Charts

The cost comparison shown above shows that your office staff could be spending an average of 20 minutes per day using the AAK Filing® method and 76 minutes per day using the standard alphabetical filing method. The AAK Filing® method clearly out performs the standard alphabetical filing system and continues to pay for itself year after year.

AAK Filing Cost Saving over Traditional Filing
In the AAK Filing® method, the color of the folder is determined by the first letter of the first name. The files are filed in 10 designated color groups behind each last name letter guide. Folders are always refiled to the front of the specified color group creating a system where active folders are at the front of each color group and less active folders are in the latter part of the group. This simplified but efficient system is especially useful in the modern office environment where time management and cost effectiveness are crucial to the success of your business.
