Timing is important, especially when it comes to big business solutions like document management. Today we'll help you decide what time is the right time for this powerful tool--and why you might not want to hesitate a moment longer!

Red Flags

How do you know if it's time to implement document management in your business? Simple: keep an eye out for these red flags!

Leaning towers of paper

If you can't see past the towers of paper on your desk or sitting around your workplace, then you've got an organization problem. The truth is that physical documents take more time to manage, which means they're more likely to cause procrastination--which, in turn, causes trouble down the line.

Wasted time (and money)

When you have to put everything on hold to hunt through file cabinets or stacks of disorganized files, you're wasting time and money--not to mention, it's all a huge frustration.

Constant security stress

Did that paper get picked up from the printer tray? Is someone walking around with classified information? Do you remember where you filed that sensitive document? If you constantly ask yourself these questions, you have security stress--and the cure is document management.

Where to Begin

When those red flags start hitting a little too close to home, you know where to turn: document management. By helping you create rules for your files--for example, choosing a naming convention for all files across your company--document management helps you stay organized, efficient, and secure. You'll even have opportunities to scan your physical files so that you can save, share, edit, update, or shred them as digital files, which makes communication a breeze. If you're reading this from behind your own stack of paper, it's probably time to think about document management!
