What is Document Management in Reston, VA?
Document management is a process used to digitize, track, retrieve, and maintain electronic or paper-based documents, frequently when a company wants to reduce dependency on paper. It is often seen as a part of Enterprise Content Management, which is how a business or organization administers information from its creation to deletion or maintenance.
Effective document management will make your company more cost-effective and make your team more productive and stop it from succumbing to many of the common perils of paper document storage.
How Document Management Can Help Your Reston, VA Organization
Get Rid of Piles of Records
When you move to digital systems, you won't have cabinets or boxes taking up any space. Office space is expensive, it's important to free up that space for something else. Paper storage can also feed the flames of a fire in the event that one happens.
Beyond mitigating a potential fire hazard, document management mitigates liability for somebody else's personal information being accessed by someone you don't want it to be accessed by.
Additionally, different industries have need to abide by different compliance standards. Paper documents can impede compliance; a 2019 Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory study found that over half of hospitals and doctor's offices are not currently HIPPA compliant. A database management system will ensure compliance by implementing automated operations. We have experience implementing compliance for Reston, VA businesses with:
Improved Access to Information
According to reporting from a Nintex survey, 49% of workers think it is too hard to find documents, and 43% find that there are problems when trying to share documents. By having information in a digital format, information can be accessed and shared with just a few clicks, even if a worker is not in the office. Document management is vital if you are allowing your employees to work from home.
PriceWaterhouseCoopers reported that the price of replacing just one misplaced paper document averages out to $122, on average enterprises lose 7.5% of their documents, and 3% are filed in the wrong place. If your enterprise collects 10,000 documents annually, you could potentially be costing your organization as much as $128,100 annually.
Additionally, office space in the U.S. costs on average of $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 cabinets, boxes, or storage bins.
Your Data Will Be Better Protected
If paper is missing, rediscover the information and recreate the document. Furthermore, a catastrophe like a earthquake could destroy them. By moving to digital document management the files can be retrieved easily. You can also more effectively impede unauthorized access.
Difficulty finding and sharing documents accounts for 21.3% of productivity loss in enterprises. Stated differently, for a company in Reston, VA with 100 employees, moving to a digital system would see a production increase the same amount as hiring 21 new employees. With all of your documents in one place and in a digital format, no one will have to spend time looking through hundreds of individual files. Instead, you'll be able to find them with a simple search.
