Go Paperless! Here's Why...

Go Paperless

Is your office filled with mountains of paper documents? Or maybe you have them all filed in countless file cabinets that take up a bunch of space in your office. To make your office neater and your life easier, go paperless! It’s understandable that some have their hesitations about going paperless, but having an electronic document management system can ease those fears.

An electronic document management system will:

  • Keep your important documents secure. An electronic document management system is often in the cloud, meaning it is hosted in several geographical locations and constantly backed up. This means that if there’s a natural disaster that ruins your office or if your computer crashes, all of your files are still safe and secure.
  • Make you more organized and efficient. Document management systems are searchable, so you can find whatever you’re looking for in a moment’s notice. They also often include filters where you can search for documents based on certain criteria. Not to mention, more than one person can access the file at once—no more waiting for that paper file to return from a coworker.
  • Save you money. As an added bonus, switching from paper documents to electronic documents in a document manage system will save you money. You’ll save by using far less paper and ink, no longer needing to buy file cabinets and not having to hire someone to maintain the paper files.

These are only a few of the many benefits that come from having an electronic document management system. But don’t take our word for it. Hear it from Steve Anderson, the leading authority on insurance agency technology, productivity and profits. View his webinar recording below!
