How can electronic document management help the construction industry save money?
Many construction companies are reporting savings of up to £10,000 per year after implementing an electronic document management system.
Paperwork in the construction industry has to be viewed on and off site and is prone to loss and damage. Security is also an issue with a high percentage of migrant workers often being able to access confidential documents.
Companies which have chosen to put an electronic document management system in place have seen much improved security as user viewing rights can be strictly controlled and the costs of document storage drastically reduced.
There are also cost implications and time delays in transporting paperwork from head office to construction sites. Using a document management system, access to critical information is instant and important decisions can be made faster, thus eliminating costly mistakes.
