Documents cost you money. Receiving, handling, storing or destroying them. Producing, circulating and circulating them.
Documents also represents risk and manual processes. But the truth about the document, is that is does not matter. Only the information contained within it is important.
By focusing on the information and the business processes which support it, we can begin to affect both the quantity of documents and the cost which they represents to the business.
By reducing the infrastructure which supports the producing, handling, storage and destruction of documents within the business, we can fundamentally alter the cost, efficiency and risk profile of the business, creating lean digital enterprises.
Find your key documents and automate the business processes which support them. Create intelligence and business value.
So declare war on documents!
Not a revolution, but an evolution.
- A project-by-project, systematic review of how documents exist in your business.
- Follow the flow of documents and identify what information is vital to the running of the business.
- Target the processes which support it and digitise them, creating an environment where the information, not the document, is the asset.
