While paper has been a constant in offices throughout the nation, the true value today comes from the ability to greatly reduce our dependency on it while improving the organization and accessibility of documents. That value starts with the effective deployment and proper usage of a document management system.

It makes no difference what industry your business is operating in or whether you’re dealing with people on an internal or external basis, satisfying the customer will always be the priority. The more time an office spends filing, organizing, and searching for paper means the less time they spend producing, delivering and growing their businesses. A properly deployed document management system could be just the thing to take customer service to the next level.

The 8 benefits of a document management system include:

  • Better storage which includes the elimination of traditional pieces like storage cabinets that take up space and stifle productivity
  • Enhanced availability reduces hunting and researching key pieces of data reside at the fingertips
  • Passwords and encryption features store sensitive data in secure locations
  • Ease of use and retrieval with increased functionality being felt throughout the environment
  • Elimination of redundancy and the introduction of workflow transparency
  • Reduced human error and increased productivity
  • Improved collaboration as workplaces become employee, not paper-driven
  • Better tracking capabilities and remote accessibility that greatly enhance workplace productivity
