How to go Digital
A paperless office holds many advantages and converting your office to one is a good decision. The best advantage is not that your office is de-cluttered with papers and folders, but you are able to manage your documents better. You can easily arrange them and find your files with a few clicks. Additionally, you don’t have to waste office space filling it with documents. Or, spend rent on a store room for your documents. Ultimately, going digital will improve your productivity and efficiency in your office. The ability to find documents at the click of a button will give you more time to focus on important things.
So how do you start going digital?
Give your Organization Time
Any large organization would have collected large amounts of paper, so you need to give the whole process time. Going digital is something that can’t be rushed. You have several documents in bills, legal deeds, contracts, reports and other vitals papers that need to be digitized.
You don’t want the digitizing process to interfere with your organization’s daily functioning, so take your time. Review the process and set a deadline that is comfortable for you.
Bulk of the work, at least in the beginning, is scanning these physical papers into a digital one. There are two ways you can go about the scanning process.
- In House
You can do it in-house by bringing in a scanning equipment and building a team that is dedicated to scanning the documents every day. You also have the option of diverting resources and have a team do it on a part-time basis.
You can hand over the papers to another organization which will scan and make the papers digital. They will be able to get the job done much faster since they have trained personnel and the right equipment.
Make a choice depending on the costs, human resources and time available.
Organizing and Accessing Documents
As a large organization, you need these documents to be available to every person in the organization and at the same time, it needs to be organized such that the files can be found easily.
