How can electronic document management help a business to become more successful?
Converting paper documents into electronic files not only frees up valuable office space but also gives faster access to information which could be critical for any business transaction. In addition to this, the instant availability of electronically stored information massively improves customer service, saves time and ultimately helps you make money.
There are several options when considering electronic storage. For example, you could outsource archived or even current files to a bureau scanning service which will professionally convert all your paperwork for you. Alternatively, you may wish to invest in an electronic document management solution for your business, giving you the ability to scan all incoming paperwork and store all documents generated inhouse directly from their native application (Word, Excel etc.) and also capture emails without having to print and scan. Some companies scan their mail as soon as it arrives in the office and then distribute it electronically. Whichever solution you choose, you will very quickly see the speed and efficiency benefits such as these:
Improved customer service – faster response times to enquiries and earlier resolutions to queries
Time savings – no more manual filing or searching for lost files
Increased profit – time saved can be used more productively to generate new business
