Psychologists and experts agree: change is hard for humans. We like routine, consistency, and certainty. With that in mind, it’s no wonder that there are still countless businesses relying on paper in a thoroughly digital world.
Is your company still relying on paper information storage? If so, you need to consider the negative effects that paper is probably having on your company.
Document Management Brings Your Data to the Forefront
Information is a powerful tool for increasing your ROI, making your office more productive, and chasing new business. But when you don’t have access to that information—like when it’s “stuck” in the static form of paper—you may as well not have it.
Paper is Not Easily Searchable
How many times have you spent hours in front of a row of filing cabinets, searching for a single document? It’s a familiar task for many people—in fact, 21% of all traditional office workers spend an hour or more a day searching for documents. This is time that is costing your company money. With a document management system, that same lost file could be found with a few keystrokes on your computer. You wouldn’t just be searching for a file name, either: you’d be searching the contents of all your documents as well to find key phrases. In this way, you can have access to more related documents at a time, allowing you to see patterns, make connections, and make data-driven decisions.
