Document scanning and records management are two essential elements of an organization for better workflow and productivity. When all important documents are scanned, they can be easily stored, saved and organized systematically. This will facilitate better records management. Records management refers to the process of efficiently managing all relevant documents of an organization throughout their life cycle.
For example, in a law office the important documents that need to be scanned include court records, correspondence, financial records, leases, agreements, interrogatories, motions, pleadings, and research. Scanning will help ensure simultaneous access to multiple users. Scanned documents also allow remote access via the internet or other network connection.
Reduction in physical space requirements and much quicker document retrieval are the two main benefits of document scanning and conversion. Other benefits include:
- Efficient storage of documents; prevents the risk of losing or damaging documents from fire, flood or theft.
