DMS & Document Management
Document management - do I need it? Depends, but chances are you do if more than one person in your office work on the same document through several versions, or iterations. Even more so if the work flow involves people outside your office.
How do you share documents in your business? If you email from one person to the other, you end up in file-sharing hell. And your email server storage gets filled up faster. How much does it cost you to increase that space?
As an example, if two people work on one 10Mb document (no more than a Word document, with a few illustrations or an embedded spreadsheet) through five iterations with return comments/annotations and share the document via email, you end up using 200Mb of space (2 people[sender's and receiver's copy]+2 comments/annotations[sender's and receiver's copy]*10Mb*5 iterations). And that is if they are disciplined and wait sending the next iteration before receiving the other person's comments.
But look at this: if 5 people do the same, they use 1.25Gb of space(5+20*10Mb*5). And, if ten people work together this way, they will use 10Gb of space (10+90*10Mb*10). All for just one document! And only one of the team members updates the document! Enough said, but do give us a call!
