Document Management and Electronic Archiving are essential parts of the digital transformation, which is a strategic target by all industry sectors.
Document Management and Electronic Archiving are essential to the digital transformation.
Information, no matter how it is initially produced or collected, is becoming an increasingly valuable asset for organisations today, while simultaneously the requirements to archive information are becoming more complex.
Finding an efficient approach to archiving information across all material aspects of its lifecycle – from its creation to its defined destruction – is a challenge. At the same time, the need to establish such an efficient approach is essential, with benefits in cost cutting and organisational performance being paramount.
Challenges such as keeping pace with technology, managing, establishing and maintenance costs, and data security and safety must be faced successfully.
However, there are opportunities, which our team of specialists can help you seize:
First, physical archives are dematerialised and redundant, and electronic archiving helps reduce duplicated data/information throughout the company.
Second, productivity can be improved by providing efficient processes and instant access to information from anywhere, even from mobile devices.
Third, electronic archiving can help to reduce risks such as changing regulatory requirements and the disclosure of confidential records, and can furthermore enhance the security layer of information by easily enforcing security policies and logging.
Furthermore, companies using an electronic archive in combination with a built-in workflow engine can react to new products, processes, and requirements with more agility.
