Fuse Your Physical and Digital Document Storage
Physical documents have comprised the way that we do business for thousands of years. From early tablets to paper filing systems in modern offices, it has always been about physical documents. Now, however, computer and electronic document filing systems are being implemented into offices the world over.
The way we store documents has not severely affected the overall productivity of an office until recently. Digital document storage is a way to archive items, making them easily searched and retrieved, and stored in a way that does not occupy physical office space.
It is rarely the case that you will see a document management system that is 100% physical or digital these days, as both are necessary for some fashion to effectively run a business. The industry trend is leaning towards digital document storage for archived items that rarely need access. Firms that cannot effectively manage both physical and digital documents are much less likely to be able to appropriately keep up with competitive pressures within their field.
