Compliance isn't just a buzzword; it's a business mandate that requires careful planning to avoid serious penalties. Read on to find out how optimizing your workflows through digital processes can make regulatory compliance easier across your organization.
1. Automate your workflows.
A document management system that maps, automates, and optimizes workflows can eliminate many of the errors associated with manual processes. A document management system also allows management to set notifications when renewals are approaching or when it's time to purge specific documents from your files. By automating your process workflows, compliance auditors are much less likely to find violations that could lead to penalties for your organization.
2. Secure your documents.
Many compliance regulations center around information security. There's no practical method for securing paper-based files, and there's no way to prove who saw them or what changes were made. Additionally, paper-based filing solutions can't be adequately protected from flood, fire, or a catastrophic weather event like a hurricane or tornado.
A document management solution backs up your data and provides access in case a disaster prevents your staff from getting to your office. Access controls and permissions keep unauthorized personnel away from protected files.
3. Eliminate error-producing bottlenecks and pinch points.
Bottlenecks in your workflows can be a source of errors, redundancies, and missteps that could cost your organization thousands in fines and loss of reputation. By replacing complicated systems with optimized digital workflows, your staff won't need to make a string of decisions to move on to the next step in your processes.
