Moving to the cloud gives SMBs access to enterprise-class technology. Pay-as-you-go services and cloud applications enable organizations to deploy emerging technologies without the expense of costly IT infrastructure.
Document Management technology was traditionally an on-premises solution, but today, more and more clients are opting to move their document management online, trading in complicated network setups for simple access with just a computer and internet.
There are many benefits beyond equipment cost savings to using the cloud to create, share, and modify your documents. Businesses run much more efficiently having all their frequently used and archived documents all in one, easy-to-access, place. Access is typically faster and smoother with practically zero down time. Automatic saves and backups, and the ability to scale your storage space to your changing demands keeps your business streamlined and nimble.
Cloud services like Microsoft Azure, EC2, GoGrid, OpSource Cloud, and Storm On Demand are reliable and are among the most commonly used by businesses. Building out your tech-stack in the cloud enables you to integrate seamlessly.
With more teams working outside of the office, online document management access is essential to keep productivity up. No matter where you are, as long as there’s an internet connection, employees can securely access and store documents from their laptops and mobile devices.
One of the main features of document management is ensuring your documents are safe from getting in the wrong hands, and all changes made to documents are tracked. Audit trails and user and group permissions are maintained in the cloud just as they would be on a desktop.
The cloud has made the robust functionality of document management accessible to small businesses. With affordable subscription pricing, no costly setup or maintenance, and the benefits of security, functionality, and accessibility, the paperless office is achievable.
