Document Management, Software, and Small to Medium Sized Enterprises30 Oct, 2014
According to F. Martinez of OpenKM, the big companies require a good document management software (system) due to the great amount of documents handled. Martinez also cites many reasons and who best can provide the appropriate software to meet the needs of SMEs. His insight includes:
Forget that small and medium enterprises also generate documentation. In fact, there are entities that are forced (increasingly) to manage with the Administration using electronic means which leads to a boost of document management in SMEs.
What can provide a document management software for an SME?
A company (no matter the size) requires documentary services for several reasons, but the most obvious are time and cost savings in managing your files.
Here we will see the benefits that a DMS can offer our SME:
Lowering in file management: If we scan the documents of the entity, we will see that the cost in terms of maintenance and management of the physical file is greatly reduced.
Customer Service: With the implementation of a document management system, processes are automated and give management more quickly and thus a considerable improvement in relations with customers.
High Degree of Efficiency & Skills: Due to the computerization of services, staff of SME increases efficiency because the processes are more agile and have not be doing heavy tasks.
Performance: One of the most significant advantages is not having to access the documentation by heavy document management procedures that all they offer is to slow access to information and therefore unnecessary loss of time.
Socialization: A good document management software should offer resources that allow company employees communicate and send documents using the same platform without having to resort to other systems for it.
As you can see, the benefits of implementing a document management software in SME are more than considerables.
When (your prospects or clients or your own company) considers selecting the best system for their company, each must take into account all the previous points to consider if it really fits their needs.
