Why are document managers opting to outsource in the current economic climate?
A recent survey has reported that many document management processes which used to be carried out inhouse, are now being outsourced.
Five areas of document processing were examined; document imaging, print/copy, mail and shipping, general records management and fleet management . Document imaging was one of the top three activities to be outsourced and was also deemed to have the greatest impact within any organisation.
The main business benefits from outsourcing included improved operational performance, a more focussed view on the core business but more importantly, substantial cost savings. Using a bureau scanning service was said to show the greatest savings, in particular in key areas such as Finance Departments and HR and also core business processes such as customer facing applications.
