How Document Management Can Help Your O’Fallon, MO Organization
Get Rid of Piles of Records
When you stop relying on physical storage, most of your employees won't even need drawers at their workstations. Office space is costly, it's important to free up that space for something else. Paper storage can also be a fire hazard.
Beyond mitigating a potential fire hazard, document management mitigates liability for your company's or clients' sensitive information falling into the wrong hands.
Furthermore, different industries have need to abide by different regulatory standards. Paper storage can impede compliance; a 2019 Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory study stated that over half of healthcare providers may not be HIPPA compliant. A database management system will ensure compliance by creating automated checklists. We have experience implementing compliance for O’Fallon, MO organizations with:
- ISO 9000

Improved Access to Information
According to data from a Nintex survey, 49% of workers think it is too hard to locate documents, and 43% find that there are complications when trying to share documents. By using a computerized documentation system, information can be accessed and shared with just a few clicks, even if a worker is working from home. Document management is key if you are moving to a remote workforce.
PriceWaterhouseCoopers stated that the cost of locating a single missing paper document averages out to $122, that the majority of organizations lose 7.5% of their documents, and 3% are filed in the wrong place. If your organization produces 10,000 documents in a year, you could potentially be costing your company as much as $128,100 annually.
Additionally, the average cost of office space in the United States is between $8 and $23 per square foot, and paper storage can take up as much as 15% of office space. You also won't have to buy the containers where the paper is stored.
If paper is missing, the information on it is likely gone. Additionally, a natural disaster like a flood could destroy them. In a computerized system the files can be recreated easily. You'll also be able to more easily dictate who has access.
Document challenges account for 21.3% of wasted time in companies.
