Scanning can be your business office's best friend, saving time and money in areas you may not have considered. Here are five surprising ways scanning's got your back.
Stop the paper chase. You know it's true—paper file management is a time-waster you can't afford to keep around, but replacing it seems like an effort in futility. Not to worry. Scanning can help your organization get paper documents into a centralized storage repository, and you can start right away. Begin with the information currently entering your business and move on from there. You can deal with those archived and boxed files after you've got things well in hand. After all, if they were essential to that project you're currently working on, they wouldn't be filed away in dusty cardboard boxes anyway.
Stop losing valuable information. Back to those cardboard file boxes: Has the only person who understood the system and (maybe) knew where everything was retired fifteen years ago? Scanning deploys intelligent data capture to store your documents logically and in a way that makes sense for your business. A simple keyword search and the information is right where you need it to be.
Prepare for the worst. There's no denying that paper files are impossible to protect from disasters like fire or flood. Don't risk losing everything you've worked for by merely hoping for the best; prepare for the worst with files that are backed up and secure.
