It’s no secret that digital business is the direction of the future and many companies are already embracing it as part of their daily workflow. Going digital offers businesses the ability to store, process and access their information anytime and anywhere, helping the company operate more efficiently and effectively to serve customers. Although switching to a digital business and filing system may seem like a daunting task, the benefits are endless. Not only will you find more free space in the office environment, but you will see your business become more streamlined. Below are a few advantages of leaping into digital business.
- Continuity: Life happens, and sometimes accidents or even disasters can occur. Physical records are not always secure, no matter how well managed a facility or work environment may be. Lost or destroyed paper files can disrupt business operations if you do not have digital copies of your files. Being able to reproduce the physical files allows you to continue business as usual after disaster strikes.
- Efficiency: How many times have you spent numerous work hours searching for records? On average, employees who work in a non-digitized space spend up to 30 percent of their day searching for paper documents. Having a centralized portal where cataloged digitized files exist can increase productivity and allow you to deliver information seamlessly. Going digital allows you to search for your files and access them instantly, anytime and anywhere.
- Compliance: Data compliance is standard for all businesses and regulations such as HIPAA/HITECH, Sarbanes-Oxley, and the USA Freedom Act. This directly impacts how businesses protect their data from potential disaster. Digitizing physical records adds an additional layer of security in the event that original, physical documents are lost.
