This whitepaper takes a closer look at all the benefits of digital archiving, with a focus on the secondary effects that are often overlooked. Given the importance of data in the modern business world, it is critical to implement a strategy that enables you to extract its full potential. This can be difficult if you still store your business data on paper, as it takes up valuable space and slows down every workflow that it’s involved in. Fortunately, there are technological solutions like Content Services that can take paper out of the equation to speed up data-related processes.
Inactive data poses a particular challenge because it lies idle for long periods of time. As a result, some businesses don’t put enough time and effort into developing a real strategy for managing it. Meanwhile, others are reluctant to digitise their files due to the fear that there might be hidden costs and no gains. However, converting this information into paperless documents is actually one of the best ways to reduce unnecessary spending. What’s more, improvements in data management are usually accompanied by efficiency gains in other areas.
Digital archiving provides a cost-effective solution to data storage that simultaneously eliminates several of the negative effects caused by improper information management. The benefits are numerous, but businesses have been slow to warm to the idea because the advantages are not always obvious. This whitepaper will therefore highlight the full range of benefits, shining a light on the effects that are often unseen but actually contribute to achieving the goals most companies identify as priorities.
