Should You Consider Outsourcing Digital Document Management?
Have you thought about outsourcing the storage of your electronic documents? Digital Designs has a new solution for the growing number of organizations that recognize the value of moving their electronic documents to a secure managed hosting facility. In this brief presentation we’ll discuss the trends and advantages of moving to that business model.
First of all, let’s review the compelling reasons for converting your business documents and records to electronic formats.
The primary reason businesses are transforming documents to electronic formats is to reduce costs in the face of an explosion of paperwork required for transacting business and meeting regulatory compliance mandates. Physical storage space is in short supply and comes at a cost premium and is difficult to secure and protect from disaster.
And finally, the proliferation of the World Wide Web has made it much simpler and less costly to instantly transport documents by a variety of mechanisms and in individually preferred formats. Web presentment enables secure customer, vendor, trading partner and employee self-service which dramatically reduces the cost of rendering responsive service on a 24-hr a day basis.
So, what are the advantages of outsourcing electronic document management?
Outsourcing means that you don’t have to wait for the backlog of internal projects to be cleared before you can implement these critical new capabilities. Managed hosting facilities offer redundancy, business continuance assurance, and are certified to ensure that your compliance requirements are met. So you can focus on core competencies, while controlling costs, avoiding heavy up-front capital investments and eliminating the need for additional internal infrastructure and administrative costs.
Outsourcing Adoption Trends
Trends and projections clearly show that more and more organizations are taking advantage of the breakthrough performance of these capabilities.
