How Document Management Helps Small Businesses Succeed

Electronic document management may seem like a tool designed for large corporations, but the benefits are just as compelling for small organizations. Paperless document management could be the very solution that helps your small business succeed.

Here's what we mean.

Help Where You Need It Most

The challenges facing small businesses run from tight budgets to cramped office spaces and too few employees. Document management addresses each of these pain points and more, giving small companies the push they need to jump-start growth.

  • Budget flexibility — Tight budgets are a common issue facing SMBs, but a document management system allows small organizations to eliminate many of the costs associated with printing. By reducing the high cost of creating, storing, and managing paper documents, document management frees up revenues for core business goals.
  • Office space — You need space to grow your business, so why allow paper to crowd you out of your office? Document management circumvents the trappings required for storing paper documents, storing everything in digital formats. When your company can get by without the systems needed for managing and storing hard copy files, you'll find yourself in a much better position financially.
  • Employee productivity — Searching for information is a leading cause of wasted time in the office. Document management gives your team immediate access to information, even when work takes them away from the office. And instead of distributing paper files and waiting hours or days to complete a process, employees can collaborate in real-time on the same file.
  • Document security — You could put locks on your filing cabinets, but what if a catastrophic event destroys your office or a hacker breaks into your network? Document management systems deploy robust security solutions to keep unauthorized users from accessing your confidential files.
