Staying organized in a small- to medium-sized business (SMB) can be difficult. SMBs frequently struggle matching workload demands with the number of employees they have on hand, which oftentimes leads to clerical errors and disorganization. But, did you know that staying organized with tools like document management software can actually save you time and money? Here are a few key ways document management makes life for SMBs easier.
Forget about figuring out where to place another file cabinet and ditch your storage unit—and the invoices that come with it. With document management, you reduce the amount of physical storage needed to maintain records. Better still, the software is designed to help you remain compliant, so you don’t have to worry about your next audit.
Document management provides an SMB with the ability to easily communicate, as teams operate without fear of misplacing a paper document or working on an outdated version of a file. Your employees will collaborate on projects better, streamlining workflows and maximizing productivity. Digitized, well-organized files allow employees to work remotely, so you can increase access to data while keeping overhead down as your business grows.
Instead of being unsure about whether or not your employees are snooping in your confidential business files, document management lets you gain control over employee access to sensitive documents. This software allows you to limit access to HR and accounts payable records containing private information such as bank account numbers, tax file numbers and credit card details keeping your confidential data secure.
Improves Disaster Recovery Backups
Document management solutions nearly always come with a disaster recovery plan that backs up your data in the event of an emergency or if your files are held for ransom (ransomware). Allowing software to back up your files instead of worrying about how to stay compliant if your office floods is one way document management can make your life as an SMB owner easier.
Document management can take away some of the stress of being an SMB owner. Let the software streamline record keeping and your workflows while enhancing backup and security and cutting costs. Contact us today to learn more about our document management solutions for SMBs.
