The Paper Problem
Paper ... In today's marketplace, the average business generates massive amounts
of paperwork. Payroll records, delivery receipts, computerized reports.
Virtually everything that comes across your desk may need to be re-handled in
the future. So what do you do? You file it!
The problem arises when a business cannot effectively manage the paperwork it
has created. Documentation that can't be found, and put to the use for which it
was created, can cause major headaches. Businesses today are drowning under
reams of paper, and vital information is still inaccessible.
Retrieval of stored paper documents is expensive and time consuming.
In a "typical" paper-based operation, 40-50% of an office worker's time is
spent storing and retrieving documents.
Lost contracts, sales agreements and purchase orders cause serious problems.
5-10% of office documents become "lost" or "damaged".
Paper and file storage is extremely expensive.
It takes a great deal of time to track down and re-file missing documents.
These are the problems ... but there are definite solutions!
Integrating your business workflow with technology provided by Integrated
Imaging addresses these problems. Document imaging is simply the process of
scanning, storing, manipulating and retrieving electronic images of office
generated documents. Rapid changes in compression, high volume storage and
computer networking make document imaging a reality. One CD-Rom can store
15,000 sheets of paper (that's 5 jam-packed file drawers!), and today's
computer networks can have the equivalent of 100's of CD's instantly available.
Historically, mass document storage has been confines to microfilm/microfiche;
literally tiny pictures of your papers. Not only are these photos expensive to
create ... finding the "snapshot" you need takes time as well. With specialized
imaging software developed by Integrated Imaging, we are able to harness the
power of leading edge computer technology and bring inexpensive document
management solutions into your business.
