I know you have been quite busy and haven’t had a lot of time to think about a paper-less solution for your office. So, I thought I would help you get some perspective on the impact and value of going more paper-less.
If you could, would you hire a part-time person for less than $0.30 that could do some of the same work you are paying your staff to do? Of course, you would. That is probably less than 10% of what you are paying your staff. Well, there is a way to do just that, let me explain.
A number of studies have been done by consulting firms such as IDC and Gartner. These studies indicate that a typical office worker spends 25-30% of their day searching for documents. But, organizations that implement a paper-less solution like Laserfiche, the time they spend searching goes to nearly zero.
I remembered a study done by Price Waterhouse a well respected consulting firm. They conducted a study to measure how effective going paperless was.
The study that they conducted a search of over 10,000 documents looking for a specific topic, author, and date range. A manual search of paper files performed by a staff of paralegals took 67 hours and found 15 documents. The same search, performed using a paperless solution like Laserfiche, required 4.5 seconds and found 20 documents.
The time differential between 67 hours and 4.5 seconds is compelling, but many managers will be more concerned about the five documents that were missed in the manual search.
I am sure if you implement the Laserfiche solution we talked about you will be amazed at how much time it can save you and your staff. Please contact me if you would be interested in seeing a demo.
