Let’s dig into what offices everywhere are calling the “digital workspace.” It’s document management, and it’s here to stay – so what is it, and how can you do it right?
Document management is a system that includes scanning old documents to create new documents digitally. Storing all in a searchable cloud database and following a unique organizational system that makes it easier than ever to find what you need.
Setting Up a Digital Office
With the great convenience of the paperless office, there can be some hiccups. Some companies do it too quickly, or with a vendor partner that isn’t invested in making the solution work for their business.
If it isn’t easy to use and fast to learn, it’s not the solution for anyone. Here’s how to ensure that you cover all the bases and get it done right the first time – so going digital is the best decision you make all year.
- Scan and organize historical data
Get the historical data in early. Even while your system is still setting up, employees are in training, and you’re guiding the implementation. This is a perfect time to start scanning historical data so that you have access to anything you need once your organized digital system is set up and ready to go.
- Invest in cloud storage and secure access
Don’t skimp on a digital office – it’s like a high-tech reboot of your own office, and you want it to function as such. Including a cloud storage system and built-in security will make the digital office safer, easier to use, and protected from vulnerabilities.
- Leverage paperless workflow
The paperless workflow works. So once you’re digital, don’t avoid it. Sure, there may be a few bumps on the road to a perfect paperless office, but invest in working through them, and your workflow will be faster, cheaper, and more efficient than ever before.
