Advantages of Document Management in Lee’s Summit, MO
Get Rid of Mountains of Paper
When you move to digital systems, you won't have cabinets or boxes taking up any space. Office space is costly, it's important to free up that space for something else. Paper storage can also be a fire hazard.
Beyond reducing a potential fire risk, document management mitigates liability for your company's or clients' private data falling into the wrong hands.
Additionally, different industries operate under different oversight. Paper storage can make compliance more difficult; a 2019 Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory study found that over 50% of hospitals and doctor's offices are not currently HIPPA compliant. A database management system will guarantee compliance by implementing automated organization. We have helped Lee’s Summit, MO companies become more compliant with:
- ISO 9000

Easier Access to Information
According to reporting from a Nintex survey, 49% of workers think it is too hard to find documents, and 43% have difficulties in sharing documents. By using a computerized documentation system, your employees will be able to search for information on a keyboard and will be able to easily share it, even if a worker is working from home. Document management is key if you are incorporating remote work.
PriceWaterhouseCoopers found that the price of finding a single missing document is $122, on average enterprises lose 7.5% of their paper documents, and 3% are filed in the wrong place. If your enterprise creates 10,000 documents in a year, the potential financial burden for your organization could be as much as $128,100 a year.
