Technology is well established as a business process problem-solver. One technology break-through that's especially good at meeting everyday obstacles head-on is document management.
Obstacle: Businesses still dependent on paper-based processes face challenges going into the future, one of which is high costs. While today's printers are much more cost-effective than those of a previous generation, managing information on paper has never been an inexpensive solution. Businesses must direct a sizable portion of their budgets to equipment, supplies, and storage solutions—all of which expand as the company grows.
Solution: Document management helps businesses reduce the need for paper documents. Employees scan incoming documents using a multifunction device or scanner, and documents created electronically can stay that way, bypassing the need for printing entirely.
Obstacle: With most of your documents on paper or stored on computer hard drives, accessing them is an ongoing challenge that consumes hours each day. Collaboration is even more of a headache, especially for mobile workers.
Solution: Document management provides access to your information from any location. Instead of searching through paper or digital filing systems, employees retrieve documents by typing keywords on their mobile device or computer. Since there's no limit to how many people can access a file at once, collaboration is a breeze. Version controls keep information up-to-date without compromising the integrity of original documents, and security protocols keep unauthorized players out of the system.
Obstacle: Excellent customer service requires flexibility, instant access to information, and the ability to secure sensitive data. Traditional solutions pose barriers to customer service on every level.
Solution: Document management makes information available in seconds. It also eliminates the challenges of an even more critical issue—securing confidential customer data. Document management protects both your business and your customers.
