A Major Cause of Operational Inefficiency for Most Companies

  
  
  
mismanaged documents, document storage

Most of the companies we talk to have four common problems that dramatically decrease their operational efficiency:

  1. Documents are mismanaged and stored all over the place (never in one central location).
  2. Limited or no access to documents when they really need them, especially when they're out of the office.
  3. Employees spend a good portion of their day searching for documents and pushing them from one person to the next.
  4. There are so many versions, they never know which one to use.

Eventually, the mess becomes so frustrating that they come to the conclusion that they need a new system for storing their files. Dropbox and Google Drive are usually the first place they look, because at least their files will be stored in the cloud and easily accessible, right?



Catastrophic Data Loss Can Destroy Your Company - Are You Prepared?

  
  
  
Document Risk Management

Only 6% of companies that undergo a catastrophic data loss actually survive. That's not good!

According to research from the University of Texas, 43% of companies that experience a catastrophic data loss will never reopen and 51% will end up closing within 2 years. Even worse, 44% of these disasters are caused by system malfunction.

While natural disasters like fire and floods can be devastating, human error can destroy just as much information. If someone spills a cup of coffee on a stack of files or within a file cabinet, will that information be lost to you forever? How will you recover data from an employee’s stolen laptop?

When it comes to the success of your organization, there’s a huge difference between work and intelligent work.

Here are 5 ways digital document management gets your company working smarter:

HR Essentials: Control Document Chaos

The amount of paperwork associated with maintaining the information for each area of Human Resources on a daily basis can be overwhelming and frustrating, especially if you don't have a clear process for managing all of the documents. Health and life insurance plans, claim forms, retirement planning options, personnel records, performance reviews, new-hire recruiting – the list goes on and on.

On top of that, ever-changing government regulations require HR departments to have strict processes and procedures in order to maintain compliance. With the amount of information under the responsibility of these departments, this is no small task. 

As a result, many companies are finding that technology such as online document management and workflow automation to add structure and organization, can save them time, money and resources.
