Document management systems, once the sole province of large enterprises, are now within reach of any business seeking to eliminate mountains of paper.
Businesses of all sizes are discovering that high-quality, compact scanners can be deployed anywhere to intercept and immediately digitize incoming documents or documents generated internally. Whether these documents end up on a sole proprietor's laptop, in a small business' file server shared folder, or in a full-blown ECM system in a large enterprise, compact, business-class scanners serve as a perfect entry point for the paperless workplace.
Many businesses understand the promise and potential of "going paperless", but simply can't find a good way to begin the process. However, starting simply with the distributed deployment of cost-effective scanners that fit easily on a desktop, tabletop, or store counter is a perfect beginning.
In fact, the technology has evolved to such an extent that this approach doesn't just have to be the beginning -- it can be a natural, on-going workflow that saves time, money, space, and hassle, not to mention a few trees.
