Global research conducted by IDC, found that 21.3% of productivity loss in the workplace can be attributed to document management issues. Whether it’s employees being unable to find the right document, or being unable to access the document, according to Interact Source, almost 20% of business time, as much as one day per working week, is spent by employees trying to locate information in order to successfully complete their work.

In engineering firms alone, as much as 70% of the firm’s project information will not even be located within their document management systems, and might be found in desktop files or email servers. The result of this is scattered bits of information and unproductive workflows.

Migrating to a digital document management system is the wisest move, especially in an age when it’s best to go paperless, but the biggest driving factor would be the ability to access them anywhere (imagine you’re working remotely and realise the documents you need are locked away
in a filing cabinet at the office).

You’ve got too much email? What are you going to do about it?

The average employee spends 28% of their week dealing with email. Put simply, email is horrible way to manage your business. It decreases productivity, increases costs and exposes your business to unnecessary risk.

But, it’s not realistic to try eliminate email completely. All you need is a solution that manages the information
contained within your email.

A solution that:

    • Integrates with your enterprise management platforms
    • Makes it easier to find, leverage and share information
    • Scale with your business without requiring additional administration or cost
