Going Paperless in Less than 90 Days
Going Paperless in Less than 90 Days
Today’s market requires businesses to stay agile and access information quickly. When your business is paperless, all documents are captured and stored securely. We might point out that the term is paperLESS, not paper free. It’s unlikely that today’s culture is going to be completely free of paper any time soon (but, hey, prove me wrong!). Digitizing information stored in protected digital archives means less paper in the office, no more lost documents, and overflowing file cabinets.
In 90 days or less, with the assistance of the Dash team in partnership with your team, you can install, implement, and utilize a paper-LESS office. We have been assisting companies for over 20 years digitize their documents. When documents are organized and secured, achieving compliance standards is greatly simplified and expedited.

= Your business can create a paper-LESS office (still a little paper, just a lot LESS!) by prioritizing the need to digitize the information. Sometimes this means taking a deeper look at your processes and workflows. Ask each team in your organization where a paper-LESS office could be created. What processes could be improved and move quicker with digital information?
= Once the processes and workflows are reviewed, get excited because now the change takes place! All the teams are on board and not only is there cost savings with less paper but there is also now time savings! Finding documents quicker and safer. Review what teams will be moving to a paper-LESS office first, second, third, etc. We’ve found here at Dash that we can roll out Dash DDX Document Automation quickly across an organization, one team at a time.

Companies invest in a document management system for a variety of reasons: some need to manage a growing workload, while others seek to reduce tedious, manual tasks. Many collaborative tasks require document processing and improving their efficiency thus driving a significant impact on your company’s bottom line.
If you want to capture significant ROI with your solution, start by calculating your savings, and choose the best opportunities for your business. Prioritize your implementation using that information: generally focusing on the biggest payback early. But always consider that the first phase should be a relatively simple one to test your assumptions and to get accustomed to the new tools – and not get too bogged down in volume. Then tackle the harder areas that probably have the larger pay-back.
