Top 10 Excuses For Not Considering Document Management This Year: #3 We’ve got to pick our battles.

Excuse #3: We’ve got to pick our battles.

Even if it’s true that organizations typically spend $20 in labor to file a document, $120 in labor to find a misfiled document, and $220 in labor to reproduce a lost document, it’s chump change to us.

Stop Losing Money

Reality: Chump change? Chump change? There’s no such thing, especially in this economy.

Forget the tens of thousands of dollars in wasted labor these figures represent. How about the time wasted waiting for those documents to reappear? The lost productivity of the individuals doing the waiting and/or searching through the files? The customer dissatisfaction that accumulates while the organization chases its tail?

These are costs too, and they will quickly doom to failure any effort you make to “do more with less” – and there isn’t an organization today that’s so rich it’s not interested in improving its bottom line.
