Have you decided that it is time to make your office paperless? This can be a huge change that requires patience along with great teamwork.
A paperless office is something that saves you time and money in the long run—it increases efficiency, improves workflow, and frees up critical office space so that your employees have more time to work on what matters.
Once you have your documents scanned and your office works with the efficiency a paperless office provides, you are still responsible for taking care of the old papers.
What Should I Do With My Documents After I Have Migrated to A Paperless Office?
Once they’re all converted to digital format there are a couple ways you can handle the hard-copy documents.
- Store your documents—You can take the critical documents you need to retain and store them in an offsite facility. Best practices include keeping a physical copy of your information as a back-up.
- Shred your documents—A local provider can safely and securely destroy your documents for you. There’s a good chance that secure paper shredding is the last step for your document scanning or conversion project. In many cases, the document management company you partner with will shred the documents you send them (or they pick up) after they scan them.
If you choose to do day-forward scanning, or even ongoing scanning, don’t let the document conversion process be a threat to your company—make sure that you have a plan in place for your documents after they’re converted.
