Remember the new concept of the “paperless office”? Here we are decades later struggling with the same challenge of automating the storage processes and document management. Why is this so difficult to achieve?

Kevin Craine, author of the book Designing a Document Strategy, and host of The Document Strategy Podcast, points out that to make effective electronic document management more of a reality, companies first have to get sales orders, invoices and the like into their systems by means of document imaging and document capture. No small task.

This interesting topic was inspired by Search Content Management’s article, “Document capture: the first step in effective document management.”

This interesting article continues to highlight some steps to take in the mission to go paperless. Definitely worth the time to read.
