At the risk of sounding like a doom-and-gloom relative everybody loves to avoid at holiday gatherings, we think you should spend some serious time contemplating your company’s worst-case scenario. Really.
Just think about the worst that could happen. How about a fire that takes down your entire building? Or a massive snowstorm that causes your roof to cave in? Worse disaster can and does happen all the time—hurricanes, flash floods, earthquakes, and the surprise massive equipment failure. The real question we’d like to ask is this:
Are You Prepared?
It’s possible you’ll get lucky and not fall in with the 60% of businesses who’ll experience a major disaster in the next two years. Even more sobering, over half of those businesses affected by a catastrophic disaster don’t survive. Fortunately for you, it doesn’t have to be that way.
Protecting The Things You Can’t Replace
Let’s face it—your real business isn’t your building, office furnishings, and floor coverings. Insurance can replace all of those items. It’s your collective knowledge that keeps the wheels of commerce turning; without it, you’ve got nothing to offer.
Protecting your collective knowledge is almost impossible if it’s contained in paper files and stored in metal filing cabinets and cardboard boxes. And an electronic filing system without the proper security protocols is almost as bad.
Electronic Document Management is a proven solution for protecting your business’s data. By bypassing paper-based storage systems for digital document processes, your information is secure, backed up, and protected from disaster, no matter when it shows up. You’ll also benefit from increased productivity, improved customer satisfaction, and better regulatory compliance. At the end of the day, you’ve got nothing to lose with Document Management, and everything to gain.
