Increase Worker Efficiency While Saving the Planet

Share |

 In these times when less is more, achieving peak efficiency has become a priority among companies wanting to maximize productivity with minimal effort, energy and waste.  Companies that have switched to Enterprise Content Management (ECM) to streamline both their paper consumption and operations are finding that, in addition to considerable cost savings, they are also saving time and doing their part to save the environment.

“Eco-consciousness among organizations has spread at a rapid rate,” says DSSI Vice President Nancy Lazenby. “Many businesses are finding that adopting environmentally conscious practices actually go hand-in-hand with their other initiatives, from cutting costs to optimizing efficiency to building a positive public image as a forward-thinking and conscientious business.”

Gaining from Going Green

Nowadays, businesses that have yet to implement green initiatives have become more the exception than the rule as companies realize that eco-friendly policies aren’t just socially responsible, they actually help their business’s bottomline.  ECM, for instance, saves time, money and even space as the need for physical storage space for filing cabinets and archive libraries are minimized if not eliminated. Additionally, ECM increases overall gains through streamlined processes, increased productivity and strengthened efficiency.

Paper Factoids: Not Trivial at All

  • Smaller Corporate Carbon Footprints
  • Reduced cost due to less paper, power and office resources consumption
  • Increased profitability through optimized employee productivity and efficiency
  • Enhanced document security and reduced storage/filing costs
  • Strengthened compliance to initiatives and policies and regulations
  • Improved organization, distribution and overall control capabilities

According to Lazenby, while most clients initially approach DSSI with the goal of improving their document management processes, many are surprised by the fringe benefits that come with ECM. “Many of our clients already have green initiatives in place and take steps to reduce, reuse and recycle,” she says. “They are impressed by how much less of these they need to do when they go ‘paperless’. While reducing carbon footprints isn’t the primary goal of ECM, it is definitely one of its immediate and lasting benefits—along with companies having much better control over the management, distribution and security of their vital company information and documents.”

A Streamlined Solution

In a nutshell, ECM (sometimes referred to as Electronic Document Management, or EDM) is the capturing, storage, retrieval and management of information, content and documents of all types relating to your business and best practices. These can span everything from purchase requisitions to vacation time tracking to bids and contracts. ECM tools and strategies streamline these informational assets and consolidate their disparate formats (from paper, to files on DVDs to folders on servers) into a single, manageable electronic database. The right ECM solution can free your company to manage time, personnel-hours and physical resources more effectively than you ever thought possible.
DSSI is an expert provider of document scanning, storage and information management solutions within the commercial, government and law enforcement communities and has been for more than a decade.
