how paper records are holding your business back
If your office still relies entirely or mostly on paper records, then you're familiar with the painstaking process of having to search through piles or boxes of paper to find the document you need. On average, employees actually spend about one-fourth of their day just looking for the information they need to do their jobs. Maybe you've thought about converting to a paperless office, but you have so many documents that you think it would take too much time and money to scan them all. Luckily, going paperless isn't nearly as time-consuming or expensive as you might think with software for digitizing paper records, and will save your company thousands of dollars per year in the long run.
Start Converting to a paperless office
While document scanning services are always available for your company to use, you can also start digitizing paper records on your own with paper capture software. Digital capture software works with other lines-of-business software to streamline document digitization on any scanner. And paper isn't the only thing you can digitize: you can also import images and documents from existing systems such as fax servers and other devices. Whether you plan on having a single scan station or multiple company-wide stations, software for digitizing paper records has the scalability to work with your and your business plans. You can also implement custom processes to automatically index data and streamline digitization with user-friendly point-and-click setup.
