Electronic filing system offers a boost to document storage

With so much being said lately about all the more flashy benefits of document control, it’s worth remembering one of the more mundane aspects of our digital bandwagon: electronic filing offers some great business values.

About one half of us business people spend about 2 hours of our day just trying to locate the information we need to do our job. (The other half spend 2 hours per day playing golf). Electronic filing systems make the job easier, and make business people more productive. Just imagine playing a 2-hour golf game in 5 minutes. This would leave an extra 115 minutes per day to get more work done!

Document retrieval is just one example where electronic filing systems lend a boost. How? Because files placed in document storage are immediately indexed and profiled with metadata. Information can be instantly retrieved with a simple search on the keyboard. Gone are the days of getting up to search for records in a filing cabinet or requesting files from an off-site storage warehouse. What took hours (or days, even, in the case of off-site storage), suddenly becomes minutes.
