Explanation:
The original English contains a mistake made commonly by native speakers of British English - I'm British and I recall my parents and teachers correcting folks on this one. "Off of" is not good style, the "of" being redundant.

That's just an extra comment though.
Now to your question.

"XXX ATTACHES all information TO a single numbering system."

The idea being, that the information is dependent upon one single numbering system.

Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
agree  Chris Rowson: It uses a single, numeric key for classifying, storing and retrieving all the information it deals with (is what it seems to say, though this is probably as imprecise as the grammar of "off of").
