Your organization has embraced electronic documents as a viable alternative to their paper products. Choosing to replace your paper documents with electronic data files offers valuable rewards, such as lower operational costs and reduced ecological footprints. Implementing a sound electronic document management platform is paramount to ensuring a successful conversion.
Many off-the-shelf electronic document management systems exist, but they are as varied as they are complex. They can come as standalone services, such as Google Drive, or bundled within larger enterprise application software suites, such as Microsoft SharePoint. If you are unsure which to choose, or how to even go about making a choice, Black Box can help. Black Box services include:
- Initial consultation and strategy planning to help you discover a best solution for your needs.
- Informational training to help you and your users organize and locate your documents.
- Attentive consideration paid to your business processes to ensure your file formats are supported.
- Analysis of your infrastructure to assess potential issues in file storage or security.
- Custom application development to produce either a complete solution, or cover gaps in an off-the-shelf option.
Why It’s Valuable and How It’s Beneficial
Electronic documents can save an organization a significant amount of money by reducing expenditures on paper, printers and printing products, and the expenses involved in transporting and storing paper documents. An effective electronic document management solution can help these organizations run more efficiently and cost effectively.
