Document Management System (DMS system for short) is a software applicable to different industries and enterprises. The electronic document management system is a key software that can help improve the productivity of the enterprise and increase the security of document storage. Choosing a company document management system that meets the needs can reduce costs for the company, improve customer experience, and maximise revenue.
In the office process of traditional enterprises, it is usually necessary to deal with a large amount of paper documents. In addition to the possibility of damage from moisture, insect or misplacement during storage, which may lead to loss of important information, it is also very difficult and inefficient to manage and search the information. During the past few years of the epidemic, many companies have introduced a remote working model to add flexibility to the company. Coupled with the increasing popularity of e-commerce, the electronic management system that can handle complex documents in one stop has attracted growing attention. The introduction of a company document management system is an important step in the digital transformation of an enterprise. Through the implementation of paperless management, it can help the enterprise to gradually transition to a comprehensive electronic system. The use of DMS electronic system can not only reduce paper consumption and be more environmentally friendly, but also save storage space and reduce operating costs for enterprises.
Whether it is a large or small and medium-sized enterprise, there may be a large number of files that need to be processed every day. Especially for SMEs, if they are too busy with other business processes to properly file their documents for a while, over time, the documents that have not been properly classified will pile up like a mountain. If there is no proper company document management system, it will be very time-consuming to find specific documents. In the worst case, there are a large number of unclassified documents, and it is difficult for staff to open the files one by one, go through the content, and then carry out the cumbersome classification process. With the help of the document management system, staff can use the real-time search function of the system to efficiently find the required documents based on information such as file names, keywords in the files, and creation dates. This can not only reduce the workload of the staff, but also save a lot of time for the company's daily operations.
When selecting an electronic document management system, be aware that if the software's service is only limited to the local server, files won't be accessible when the team is away at work. Moreover, although some software on the market claims to have cloud services, it is best to understand their actual functions. For example, the cloud function of the software may allow users to log in with a web browser, but the available functions are limited. If you want to make it easier for employees to work remotely and access documents outside the office, you need to understand the cloud network technology used by the system in order to choose a system that suits the needs of the enterprise.
Furthermore, enterprises should pay attention to whether the document retrieval function parameters provided by the system include folders, document names, document texts, tags, etc., and whether cross-parameter retrieval is allowed when selecting a document management system, which is critical to the efficiency of document search. At the same time, if the system provides the optical character recognition (OCR) function, it will be even more convenient for enterprises to capture data in different types of documents. Try to choose software with advanced search capabilities that can help your teams quickly and accurately get the information they need from documents, anytime, anywhere.
