Every two years, the world's information is doubling, with an estimated 1.8 zettabytes created and replicated in 2011 alone.1 This influx of information is not only increasing, but up to 80 percent of it comes in an unstructured format.1 Workers across all organisations are spending more and more time sifting through this information from multiple channels and inconsistent formats, leading to decreased productivity and an increase in inefficient, manual processes. At an enterprise level, this is coupled with the realisation that the promised "paperless office" of the future is turning out to be a myth — and that while the amount of information being stored, shared and accessed electronically is increasing, the amount of paper we're using is also continuing to grow.
In a recent study conducted by Fuji Xerox Australia and IDC,3 respondents who had begun the process of converting documents into electronic formats rated digitised documents as nearly 14 percent more effective than their counterparts that had no plans to digitise. This suggests that while the prospect of digitisation may be daunting and seem futile to organisations, those that do are realising the benefits. Digitisation of data can help you easily preserve and archive documents, provide painless access to information and make it easy for your staff to share and collaborate on files in a range of different formats.
How can digitisation help your employees work more effectively with documents, both on paper and in pixels?
