Physical storage can typically account for 25% to 33% of usable office floorspace.
THE CASE FOR DOCUMENT MANAGEMENT
Document management is increasingly becoming a fundamental, business critical application as more and more small to medium businesses come to experience the same information and intellectual capital challenges that plague larger organisations. Everyone has experienced the frustration of not being able to locate that file containing that important piece of information. Recent research in the last few years on document and knowledge management across various industries and organization has uncovered some startling facts. • 80% of employers waste an average of half an hour per day retrieving information from files and documents; and that • 60% of employees are spending an hour or more per day duplicating the work of others.

Loss of Documents and Business Information
Coopers & Lybrand and Imersion Technologies study of intellectual property and process management recently revealed: • 7.5% of all documents get lost, 3% of the remainder

The true cost of physical storage
Businesses today are retaining hardcopy paper files and media for periods of up to 7 years for practical and often regulatory reasons. Physical storage can typically account for 25% to 33% of usable office floorspace and is a significant contributor to many businesses moving to larger premises or leasing expensive offsite storage facilities. The true cost of physical storage is one that affects the business bottom-line, ie: • high cost of storage floorspace / sqm / annum; • reduced of productivity maintaining efficient filing systems; • reduced amenity in general use of available office space.

get misfiled. • Office professionals spend 5-15% of their time reading information, but up to 50% of their time looking for it. This highlights that loss or inability to locate essential corporate information is negatively impacting bottom-line profitability, productivity and retention of intellectual property across their organization. Conversely, recent studies on organisations that have implemented document management systems report a positive result, stating that: • “Overall, participants cited the biggest productivity returns in terms of accelerated document retrieval, faster filing, reduced staffing requirements and the biggest cost savings in the reduction of printing, distribution and storage costs.” (Source: Nucleus Research). Further findings from the Nucleus Research study indicate: • 86% percent of participants cited increased productivity and the average participant reduced document retrieval time by 52% with their solution. Many participants indicated greater regulatory compliance as well.

The true cost of electronic storage
The simple truth is digital storage is the cheapest and most efficient method of document and media storage available today. And it only continues to get cheaper. Where physical storage costs for a small and medium sized business (a small solicitors office for example) can conservatively run up to several thousand dollars a year, digital storage costs of approx $0.03 per ‘gigabyte’ at wholesale pricing levels represent dramatic savings.

Protect your bottom line
The up-shot of this illustrates that most businesses will benefit from the implementation of a document management system, that the positive results significantly impact the business bottom-line and become the basis for efficiently conducting every business function.
