Often, once an organization gets their new document imaging software and scanning equipment up and running, they sit back on their laurels and manage business as usual. But that can  be costly. In order to maintain the investment, it is important to revisit it frequently.

We found this interesting piece of information on Search Content Management in their article, “Maintaining document imaging software deployments for ongoing success.” In order to get a return on investment (ROI), it is important to set goals. Determine reasonable expectations and don’t forget to factor in exceptions, i.e., documents that don’t conform to predefined rules and require manual entering.

Often organizations see an immediate return and get excited about the “success”. But then when costs start to add up, it is easy to lose sight of the original plan.

Choose a professional to help you with your document management system and you won’t find yourself scurrying to make it work. Access Innovations is one of a very small number of companies able to help its clients generate ANSI/ISO/W3C-compliant taxonomies to make their information findable.
