Keeping Digital Document Management Systems Organized
Stay in communication
When implementing any new organizational system, it is critically important to be communicative with your staff about how the system works. No matter how well-organized your system may be, that will all be futile if no one in your office understands how it works. When employees don’t understand how your new system works, it can lead to a decrease in productivity as well as unnecessary frustration and headaches for both you and your employees. To prevent this, it is important that your entire staff understands how the new digital storage system works and how to access the files and documents that they are going to need.
Keep it clear
It doesn’t matter how well-organized a file storage system may be if no one understands what is in each file because the label doesn’t make sense. From the outset, you’ll want to educate your staff on how you expect them to maintain the system. One habit that can go a very long way to increasing efficiency of your digital storage system is to implement a standard labeling method for all files and folders. This will ensure that employees not only know where to look for files but how to look for them as well.
