Successful document management will save you time and money and ensure your team is running efficiently and are not succumbing to many of the typical perils of paper document storage.
Advantages of Document Management in Clayton, MO
Get Rid of Mountains of Paper
When you move to digital systems, you won't have cabinets or boxes taking up any space. 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 be a fire hazard.
Beyond reducing the spread of a fire, document management mitigates liability for your company's or clients' private data falling into the wrong hands.
Furthermore, different industries operate under different oversight. Paper documents can impede compliance; a 2019 Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory study reported that as many as 56% of hospitals and doctor's offices are not currently HIPPA compliant. A database management system will verify compliance by creating automated checklists. We have helped Clayton, MO companies become more compliant with:
- ISO 9000
- The Privacy Act of 1974
- And more
Faster Access to Information
According to reporting from a Nintex survey, 49% of employees have difficulties locating documents, and 43% have difficulties in sharing documents. By digitizing your systems, information can be accessed and shared with just a few clicks, even if an employee is not in the office. Document management is key if you are moving to a remote workforce.
PriceWaterhouseCoopers reported that the cost of finding just one misplaced document averages out to $122, that most companies lose 7.5% of their paper documents, and 3% are misfiled. If your organization collects 10,000 documents in a year, you could potentially be costing your enterprise up to $128,100 annually.
Additionally, the average cost of office space in the United States is between $8 and $23/SQFT, and up to 15% of that could be physical storage of documents. You also can avoid spending money on cabinets, boxes, or storage bins.
If a paper document is lost, the information on it is likely gone. Beyond that, a natural disaster like a earthquake might destroy them. In a computerized system the files can be retrieved easily. You can also more effectively impede unauthorized access.
Ineffective document storage accounts for 21.3% of productivity loss in businesses. To paint a better picture, for a company in Clayton, MO with 100 employees, improving your document management system would see a production increase the same amount as hiring 21 new employees. With an efficient and easy to use document management system, you won't have to physically go to a storage room or unit and search through piles of paper. Instead, you'll be able to find them with a simple search.
