Did you know that the cloud computing industry is worth roughly 150 billion dollars Everything is moving onto computers and, in most cases, online. Your office is no exception. More companies making the shift, and converting paper and physical files to electronic content. Why are companies finally taking the leap?
Paper files come with a lot of risks. Paper files will go up in smoke in the event of a fire, and they will be reduced to soggy messes should a floor occur. To top it all off, someone could easily steal or misplace physical files. Portable scanners, and business card readers, can leave all of those things where they belong… in the past. Companies can choose from two different types of business card scanners to get started. Some scanners will take digital photos of business cards, and some even upload and arrange data for you.
Companies are reluctant to change. A Content Management Association survey reveals that the overwhelming majority of companies still think that physical copies of files are necessary. The reason? Most companies believe that paper files are the most reliable source to turn to during legal disputes. Whether or not you destroy or recycle paper files is up to you. No matter what you decide to do, converting them to electronic form is a good idea. Why? Employees can locate particular files by searching for names, dates, or keywords, and files can be accessed with ease, from just about anywhere.
Portable scanners and business card readers are helping companies move their files online. Or, in other words, scanners are helping companies keep files secure, organized, and more readily available than ever before.
