Many offices are now adjusting to remote work as a new way of doing business. When coworkers and employees work separately, it can be challenging to keep everyone on the same page. A document management system is a great way to organize and track documents so that everyone in an organization can stay up-to-date.
What is document management?
Document management is a system that helps organize paper and digital files in a central digital repository. It allows all employees within an organization to process, capture, store, manage, and track documents remotely so that everyone in a company can stay informed regardless of company size. A standard document management system contains several components essential to handling paperwork in a remote environment.
A document management system should be able to process documents from various sources, including scanners and printers, and store them in a central digital repository. From there, users should be able to set rules controlling who can access which documents. These rules are essential for any records of a confidential nature. Document management systems also make it easier to automatically scan and index documents for streamlined tracking and retrieval. Sharing and collaboration are also simplified with document management; people can work on the same documents across multiple systems without fear of loss or creating multiple versions.
