What Are the Benefits of a Document Management System for My Business?

What Are the Benefits of a Document Management System for My Business?

Document archival, storage, and retrieval is an important – and often costly – part of any business process. In a traditional office setting with paper documents stored in metal filing cabinets, workers can spend up to 4.5 hours per week just looking for documents.

Add in the productivity cost of having employees recreate documents that they can’t find, and you have a compelling argument for keeping your document management system as organized as possible.

Whether your current office relies on paper or has fully undergone digital transformation, modern document management solutions can improve employee workflow and productivity.

Organizations that still rely on paper-oriented processes need to dedicate office space to document archival. In most large American cities, renting office real estate costs between $23 and $75 per month per square foot. A single five-drawer filing cabinet takes up at least three or four square feet, making them an expensive and entirely avoidable office fixture.

The key to success in today’s business environment is leveraging technology towards making workflows and processes as efficient as possible. The first step towards this goal is reducing office workers’ reliance on paper. This sets the stage for more sophisticated document management systems to take form.
