In the information, society is increasingly difficult to find a job where a person does not have to interact with documentation or data at some point. And now we could add that, due to the exceptional circumstances in which we live, managing documentation and information through document management software has become the norm.
This, is a solution to a complex problem, can nevertheless be a headache for the affected person. If, for example, you work in an office, how are document management processes transformed with the implementation of an electronic document and records management system? Will paper documents still be accepted? What to do to digitize them? How is electronic and digitized documentation organized? Where to start when implementing document management software? And how far do we want to go? Also, on a technical and human level, what do I have to do? And this is just a selection of the trade-offs that any company has faced in recent times.
Some have chosen to stay where they were, with the risk that this entails. Others have decided to implement document management solutions to overcome the obstacle.
Without due planning, the company staff must redouble their efforts to work with a tool that they may not know adequately; the consequences are increase failures, errors, and bad experiences, which can negatively influence the acceptance and success of the project.
The implementation of a new document management tool in an organization is a project in which everyone participates. From the board of directors, who makes the executive decision, to the middle managers and technical personnel who deploy the new solution, to the staff who are going to be most affected by the presence of the latest software. Without forgetting, of course, customers' opinion, who most likely use the new platform, to continue consuming our products and services.
