Scanning for the Love of Time, Space, and Budget
From personal use to enterprise-sized businesses, scanning is the new wave of the future. Not only does it play a huge role in the green movement, but it also cuts costs, saves space, and can free up hours of managing high-maintenance printers and storage rooms. Industries that thought they could never go paperless have discovered new technologies that safely and efficiently reduce the use of paper, storage, ink, and man-hours.
According to Record Nations, employees actually spend more time searching for files than they spend reading them. Scanning documents into a centralized database is also a great form of disaster recovery planning. If files and filing cabinets were to encounter a fire, flood, or some other unfortunate disaster, that information would most certainly be lost for good. However, that same information scanned and saved to the cloud or similar database outside of the office would be left unscathed.
In addition to scanning, remote access to the workplace has been a big trend in recent years. Mobility of users and applications has become a key aspect of running an efficient business. If a user can get their job done from anywhere they are located, disaster recovery is built-in and productivity is boosted. However, combining the benefits of scanning with those of remote workplace access can result in new headaches.
