You may have compliance hurdles or feel like a DMS is going to be too expensive. The truth is, many times DMSs are customizable, and you can implement as much (or as little) as your heart desires. There’s no pressure of “paperless or bust” – and the onboarding process takes weeks compared to months with other, larger solutions that require equipment and hefty upfront costs.
There’s no magical potion that will say “Yes, you must!” but if you find yourself thinking there’s a better way to work, then you may want to look further into how a DMS can improve your day-to-day operations. Unifying your processes and refining a robust workflow automation can completely revolutionize the way you do business (in a good way!).
Just make sure that:
- The document management vendor is reputable and has a good track record of successful implementations
- You have control to adjust or change the interface/capabilities as your business scales
- Part of deployment involves training the staff, so there’s company-wide buy in and consensus
Perhaps it’s not accurate to wonder whether a DMS is right for your company, but rather, what is contained within the DMS platform that you could use to increase productivity and efficiency in your business.
