One of the great things about document management is that it's not just a "fair weather" solution. That is to say, it doesn't just help you make good things better; it also helps you in times of crisis--like, for example, a data emergency. Here's how document management can help you prepare for disaster!
Expecting the Worst
Document management really fits that old saying, "Hope for the best, expect the worst." It makes "the best" possible by streamlining workflows, cutting down on waste, and strengthening communication with simple organization techniques--but it also helps you expect "the worst" by preparing you for any number of disasters. Here are just a few examples!
- Natural disasters. It's hard for your business to predict a fire, flood, or other natural disaster--but it doesn't have to be hard to prepare. Document management helps you utilize the cloud for off-site storage so that your data is safe even if your workplace isn't.
- Digital disasters. Whether it's a tech issue or a cyberattack, digital disasters can be expensive, stressful, and frustrating. Luckily, document management can help you prepare in all the right ways--creating backups, strengthening security, and encouraging good online habits.
- Man-made disasters. We're only human, which means that all of us can make mistakes--but document management can make those mistakes less destructive when they do occur (and, sometimes, stop them from happening at all). For example, with document management, you can choose workflow automation options to limit human error and get things done quickly, efficiently, and correctly.
At the end of the day, document management is such a great solution because it encourages good things (like stronger communication and better organization) and protects against bad ones (like natural disasters or data loss). It's a win-win!
