Finding the biggest threat to productivity in the workplace is a battle that many managers and business leaders constantly fight. However, research has revealed the true obstacle to ultimate efficiency. Managing digital documents was noted as the biggest hurdle to overcome, placing intelligent digital document management solutions as the ‘golden secret’ to productivity.
This news comes as results of a global survey by IDC from 2012 are highlighted, five years following from its initial release. Published in a whitepaper named ‘Bridging the Information Worker Productivity Gap: New Challenges and Opportunities for IR’, IT professionals from across the world revealed that challenges faced when working with documents were responsible for the most time wasted during the working day. As the findings are revisited, the need for streamlined virtual document management systems is amplified in an age that now relies on digital forms of communication more than ever, not only in the IT industry but across the entire business landscape.
Naveed Ashraf, Managing Director at Pearl Scan said, “Although most job roles now rely on information in the form of digital documents to complete their daily tasks, they are also the biggest burden to productivity. An intelligent document management solution is key to overcoming the many obstacles they present.”
Amongst other findings, research by IDC revealed that the average business wasted $19,732 per worker, per year due to issues relating to working with and managing documents. Five years later, these costs are surely greater, with digital documents forming an integral part of almost every employee’s working role.
Switching from dis-jointed, outdated or non-existent document management solutions to sophisticated cloud-based digital document management platforms can hold the ‘golden key’ to productivity that management seeks to find.
Pearl Scan is a trusted name in the realm of document digitisation, using this expertise to develop Pearl Cloud, its own cloud-based document storage and retrieval platform, offering the much needed solution to modern day document management issues.
