PREPARE FOR DISASTER WITH DOCUMENT MANAGEMENT

The lifeblood of your business is contained in your documents, which leads us to ask a question.

Where are your documents?

If your organization was faced with a catastrophic disaster, could you save your proprietary information? If it’s printed on paper and housed in filing cabinets and banker’s boxes, the answer is a decided No.

HOPE FOR THE BEST. PREPARE FOR THE WORST.

No one thinks they’re going to be impacted by a catastrophic event until it happens. Floods, fires, and earthquakes don’t discriminate, and if your business was unfortunate enough to be in their path, would anything be left?

While the physical loss would still be very high, businesses with a document management system are more likely to survive a natural or human-caused disaster. Here’s why:

1. THEY’VE BACKED IT UP

Your business runs on information. Everything contained in your offices and warehouses, from furnishings and office equipment to product inventories, is insured. If the worst happened and all of those possessions were suddenly gone, there’s a solid plan in place to replace them.

But your business isn’t made of brick, mortar, and floor coverings—it’s made of information and ideas. Organizations that back up their data in a document management system have a solid plan for recovery after a disaster.

2. THEY’VE ALREADY PLANNED FOR RECOVERY

If you showed up to work today and found everything underwater due to a broken water main, could you regroup at another location by day’s end? Companies who’ve planned for disaster already know the address of that location.

A document management system allows your team to access critical information and get back to work as soon as possible. With any time/anywhere access to your files, work is any place you and your team happen to be.
