It is often considered a branch of Enterprise Content Management, which is how a business or organization manages the creation, collection, publication, and distribution of information.
Successful document management will make your company more cost-effective and make your team more productive and stop it from succumbing to many of the typical snags of paper document storage.
Advantages of Document Management in Annapolis, MD
Get Rid of Piles of Records
When you stop relying on paper, most of your employees won't even need cabinets at their workstations. As the price of office space rises, you don't want to take up valuable space when you don't need to. Paper storage can also feed the flames of a fire if one happens.
In addition to diminishing a potential fire hazard, document management mitigates liability for your company's or clients' personal information being accessed by someone you don't want it to be accessed by.
Additionally, different fields have different oversight. Paper storage can impede compliance; a 2019 Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory study found that as many as 56% of healthcare providers may not be HIPPA compliant.

Document management is imperative if you are allowing your employees to work from home.
PriceWaterhouseCoopers reported that the cost of locating a single missing paper document is $122, on average enterprises misplace 7.5% of their documents, and 3% are misfiled.

Furthermore, the average cost of office space in the United States is between $8 and $23/SQFT, and paper storage can take up as much as 15% of office space. You also won't have to spend money on the containers where the paper is stored.
