If you’re interested in storing information in one central place, saving time and money, then the answer will be yes, electronic document management is right for your business! There is sometimes a misconception that electronic document management is the preserve of big corporations, however over recent years it something which is increasingly being used by SMEs and new businesses.
What is electronic document management?
An electronic document management system is a central digital repository, designed to hold all of your documents, information, files and records. Documents of all types and sizes can be stored; from legal documents and architectural plans, through to data, accounts and personnel records. Depending on your requirements, digital documents can be stored in either a cloud storage system or in a system hosted by your business.
The process begins with the ‘capture’ of paper documents and files; this is done using a document scanning system and the scanning systems we use here at Pro-Doc have the capability to scan hundreds of documents at a time. Once documents have been scanned, they are converted into digital files, ready to be accessed as and when you need them.
One of the main benefits of moving to an electronic document management system is the improvement in workflows. Documents can, for example, be automatically forwarded to a particular member of staff or department, whilst information can be found quickly and efficiently using keyword search.
Security is, of course, a concern for all businesses but today’s electronic document management systems are designed to provide unparalleled levels of protection through secure user access, so you can relax in the knowledge that your business critical information is safe and protected.
