Deploying a document management solution will change a company’s processes, enhancing corporate knowledge, enabling easier document retrieval, improving regulatory compliance, and saving time.
However, deploying such a solution is not a quick and easy process. Because the project will impact every part of the organisation, it takes time and forethought to get the platform right, and that forethought needs to begin even before the software is chosen.
In my experience, there are three “foundation stones” of research that are essential for document management success:
Do your homework
Cross examine your options
Choose your best fit
Spending time on each of these three research foundation stones provides the information that will enable you to make an informed choice of document management solution and vendor, resulting in the selection of solution that best fits your organisation’s needs – for your immediate project and for possible future expansion.
It arms you with the right knowledge to make a smart choice. All that’s left is the decision.
