What is Document Management in St. Louis, MO?
Document management is a system used to capture, track, recover, and collect digital or paper-based documents, often in order to reduce paper. It is often seen as a component of Enterprise Content Management, which is how a company or organization manages information from its inception to deletion or storage.
Efficient document management will save you time and money and ensure your team is running efficiently and are not falling victim to many of the common stumbling blocks of storing information on paper.
How Document Management Can Help Your St. Louis, MO Organization
Get Rid of Stacks of Paper
With a paperless, automated workflow, 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 diminishing a potential fire hazard, document management mitigates liability for somebody else's private information being accessed by someone you don't want it to be accessed by.
Furthermore, different industries have different oversight. Paper documents can impede compliance; a 2019 Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory study stated that over half of hospitals and doctor's offices may not be HIPPA compliant. A database management system will verify compliance by creating automated organization. We have helped St. Louis, MO organizations become more compliant with:
- ISO 9000
- The Privacy Act of 1974
- And more
Faster Access to Information
According to a Nintex survey, 49% of employees struggle to find documents, and 43% find that there are problems when trying to share documents. By using a computerized documentation system, information will be at the tips of your employees' fingers, literally, even if a worker is working from home. Document management is key if you are allowing your employees to work remotely.
Cut Down on Costs
PriceWaterhouseCoopers stated that the price of locating a single missing document averages out to $122, that most enterprises misplace 7.5% of their paper documents, and 3% are misfiled. If your business collects 10,000 documents in a year, you could potentially be costing your company up to $128,100 a year.
Additionally, most office space nationwide costs between $8 and $23/SQFT, and up to 15% of that could be physical storage of documents. You also can avoid buying the containers where the paper is stored.
Your Information Will Be More Secure
If the paper version of a document is missing, the information on it is likely gone. Beyond that, a catastrophe like a fire might destroy them. By moving to digital document management the files can be recreated easily. You can also more easily prevent unauthorized access.
Document challenges account for 21.3% of wasted time in enterprises.
