Uncovering the true cost of document production
Industry analysts IDC* report that as much as a staggering 30% of company revenue spent on Information Lifecycle Management could be saved.
They highlighted “disconnected document processes as undermining investment due to gaps in front and back office business processes.“
Since there is the potential to realise substantial savings, having an analysis of your Information Lifecycle would be a good start.
The four stages of Information Lifecycle Management are:
This is where the Document Lifecycle begins. Whether it’s hard copy or an electronic document, in the office or on a mobile device. Our solutions allow you to easily capture and index information. With options to automatically extract information from documents we can help you to capture high volumes of documents easily.
Once captured, documents and information need to be securely managed to allow easy access and also ensure security. Enterprise Content Management (ECM) systems provide a complete solution with features such as robust security, audit trail and Records Management which enables compliance and helps organisations to comply with regulatory requirements such as GDPR.
Processing information often relies on manual, paper-based processes. These can be automated through Digital Transformation. With the potential to increase operational efficiency, automating business processes can, therefore, deliver exceptional returns.
The Output stage can be controlled through effective use of Print Management Software. This provides the tools to effectively manage users, devices and access controls whilst improving efficiency and enhancing user productivity. From simple tracking and monitoring of print, copy, scan and fax jobs, to extending the power of MFD hardware to provide secure controlled access and integrated mobile printing options.

- Reduced costs
- Improved efficiency
- Complete document control
- Integrated technology
