It has been predicted that there will be more than one billion people using tablets across the globe this year but how will this affect document management trends?
Tablets have only been popular for the past five years but I think it’s safe to say this is one trend that has well and truly taken off and businesses were some of the first places to see the devices introduced.
Benefits of tablets in the office
- Work can be accessed on the move.
- Files can be retrieved in an instant rather than searching through filing cabinets.
- They are great space savers.
- You can utilise apps relevant to your business.
- You won’t need to spend money regularly upgrading devices (which is thought to be the reason for a decline in sales of tablets towards the end of 2014.)
New Document Management Trends
As providers in scanning services, we have seen a large number of companies digitising their document archives in order to make them accessible on tablets in the workplace. More and more companies are turning their backs on traditional and unreliable hard copy storage methods in favour of embracing the benefits of going digital such as;
- Freed up office space
- More document flexibility
- Extra document security
- Instant access to documents
- Time saved in file retrieval
- Better overall office efficiency
- Boosted green credentials
This new trend has seen companies striving for better office efficiency, easier access to documents and improved workflow. It seems that digitising documents and accessing them through tablets provides the perfect solution. It’s cost effective, efficiency boosting and time saving so it won’t be surprising to see more businesses going that way in the very near future.
