Business Insight

Many companies are finding it difficult to manage their paper records efficiently and effectively. They are incurring significant costs by relying on a paper filing system.

Information has become too difficult and time consuming to manage. Businesses are looking to improve their businesses processes through improved storage and workflows. There is an opportunity to introduce a Document Management System to improve access to critical files.

Proposition (further challenges)
Businesses face several challenges in tackling the move to a Document Management System.
• records are often highly sensitive,
• existing processes cannot be interrupted,
• active files are frequently accessed and changed,
• there is often a mix of electronic and paper files and
• significant changes to the business are required (change management)

The Solution (execution)
Docuvan will work closely with you to identify your requirements and develop a solution that will meet the unique requirements of your business. This involves understanding your existing processes and the current status of your filing system.

Docuvan will then scan and index any backlog files and sort any existing electronic documents. This allows the businesses to migrate to the new Document Management System. Paper files can then be destroyed or put into storage depending on legal and business requirements.

Next, Docuvan will then implement and train users in the Canon’s Therefore Document Management Solution to deliver more efficient access to critical files. We will endeavour to make the process of transition to an electronic system as seamless and smooth for those involved.

The Outcome
The introduction of Document Management System (DMS) will lead to the following benefits:
1. The integrity and continuity of documents is preserved: Documents remain complete and accessible despite changes to the business organisation, personnel or document keeping technology
2. Efficiency: A DMS will reduce time spent searching for information. A search does not have to be linear like with paper files. With a system you can search multiple terms at once.
3. Communication: a common filing language fosters cooperation in the retrieval and exchange of information throughout the business and its different departments
4. Document Retention and Disposal: With an appropriate backup strategy in place, the electronic system will protect your critical files in the event of a disaster. The system can also separate documents with different retention times to assist in retention and disposal activities.

The Process (Docuvan’s Onsite Scanning Service)
Docuvan’s onsite scanning service helps to overcome some of the challenges associated with scanning sensitive files:
• By scanning onsite your documents remain on your premises therefore the files remain secure and confidential
• If a file is required during the scanning process we can provide the paper document quickly and easily as we are ‘just down the hall’. Thus, the disruption to existing processes is limited.
• Further, by being onsite the number of documents being prepared and scanned at a particular time can be minimised.
