Just because you are part of a small business doesn't make your documents any less valuable. And it doesn't put you at a lower risk of damage—theft and fire can occur anywhere. When you suffer a documentation loss, whether its a few files or thousands, it will negatively impact your business. You are left with a financial deficient to clean up the mess, not to mention the frustrating work of collecting information all over again. That's a big job, especially for a small business owner.
Your customers, whether patients, students, or clients, have trusted you with their personal information—sometimes decades of it. Assuring them that their information is secure in an offsite location can give your customers peace of mind. That's a valuable asset for any size business.
Save on Office Space
Storing shelves of old documentation can take up critical office space. Not only are you paying for space you may use infrequently, you are taking up real estate that could better be served by making your office customer-friendly. Plus a cramped, cluttered office doesn't provide the best impression of your business.
With more employees working virtually or while on the road, a document management system can ensure that anyone can access a document from any location. This keeps your employees productive while offsite and doesn't require a check-in to the home office—which literally might be in your home. When your entire team can collaborate from anywhere, you save time that you can use on bigger tasks.
