Document Process Efficiency and Management
A Case for Enhancing Business Performance
Business documents are vital strategic, financial, operational and intellectual assets that are essential to daily business processes. This is why outsourcing document process management enables organizations to reduce costs, increase productivity, manage document risks and enhance business performance.
Document process management (DPM) outsourcing integrates technology, processes and people to seamlessly manage documents throughout their useful lifespan, from creation through archiving. DPM maximizes the utility of documents as critical business assets, and minimizes document-related risks. Strategic outsourcing enables an enterprise to design and execute a sound program customized to meet your business objectives at, potentially, a reduced cost.
Documents flow throughout the veins of an enterprise. They exist in multiple locations, formats and media, including electronic and paper. They contain information upon which much of a company’s value is based. Business documents are vital strategic, financial, operational and intellectual assets that play an essential role in business processes. They constitute the lifeblood of an organization. Yet half of organizations rate their document management practices as less than effective. While it’s important to do so, few conduct assessments to analyze, streamline and optimize their document processes.
