It’s common for people to sign up for a gym membership and go religiously for the first few weeks. Then, after some time it dwindles down to a few times a week, then not at all. Because we don’t see results from the gym after the first day, many lose sight of their goal and stop going. Document management is like gym membership except it continues to keep up your productivity up every day. Not like that one friend that says this year is the year when they lose some weight and hit the gym every day like he or she has been saying for the past 5 years.
Document managing is a great way to get that instant productivity burst that you have been looking for in your office. Now you might be asking yourself how document management will increase my productivity from day one. I’m glad you asked. Here are some ways productivity will increase:
Wasted time elimination:
According to the Delphi Group (Analysts and consultants specializing in document and knowledge management) 30% of all employees’ time is spent trying to find lost documents. That time can really add up over the course of a year. Not to mention the time replacing lost documents adds another 3 hours a week. With document management these numbers can be almost eliminated.
Ease of finding documents:
Once the time for search and recreation has been eliminated. The process for finding documents is simple and secure. With the use of software, the documents you are looking for can be found almost instantly with key words. Need to find last month’s balance sheets or receipts? Just type it in the software program will find it for you. Increasing your productivity immensely.
Productivity is defined as the quality, state, or fact of being able to generate, create, enhance, or bring forth goods and services. Make no mistake with document management your goods and services will go up along with your bank account.
