When properly configured, today’s modern office is a marvel of efficiency. Waste goes down, productivity rises, and the paper chase becomes a thing of the past!
In the old days, office document management systems were fairly simple: documents were created on typewriters, hard copies circulated around, and then were filed away. The system worked pretty well for a long time, but created seas of filing cabinets. And there was never a guarantee that the files would be where they were supposed to be. With the introduction of the office computer, things got a little better, but most offices still rely heavily on the old technology.
As technology moves forward, it can sometimes seem like change happens so quickly that you barely have time to get used to one innovation before another comes along to make it obsolete. Oftentimes, however, there’s a bigger picture to consider, and change can be for the better.
