Scores of businesses are still clinging to hard-copy paper processing, even though retaining such an situation can be very expensive and time-consuming. Generally, paper documents are produced, photocopied, and mailed or faxed to others as required. The recipients of the information frequently have to make copies for their records or retype the information into its final electronic form.
Constantly replacing paper can get expensive. Inventory must to be stored someplace for upcoming retrieval. Often files end up stacked on top of file cabinets or on someoe’s desk, even in the janitors closet. Regardless, the expense in time and money is considerable and hugely inconvenient.
One might say that the capital expense of a dependable document-imaging solution, when compared to the inconsistent costs linked with a accepted paper office, is too substantial a bite out of an already tight budget. However, the right document-imaging software should not be thought of as an expense but rather as an investment. Thus, it should have a measurable return that will justify the capital expenditure.
Say goodbye to the over-crowded fileroom. Document imaging software can substantially reduce the need for physical storage space by converting mountains of paper into megabytes of electronic information. Data exchanges inserted between the origniator and recipient of paper documents can be efficient. Retrieval times of saved documents can be dramatically decreased. These productivity and efficiency gains have a value associated with them. Remember that the most costly resource is usually the employee.
Best Strategy to Consider
Many companies are opting to launch their electronic document-imaging and management solution in-house using low-cost, high production scanning hardware coupled with the newest innovations in document-imaging and sorting software. Businesses are using their network infrastructure to form the foundation of a document-imaging network where documents can be scanned to a network server, this providing multiple user access.
