Have you ever been on the road traveling for business and discovered you needed a file from your office? If you have your own ‘unique’ file system, it could be a challenge to send someone to your office to look for what you need or try to tell your assistant where something is. Or even worse, your assistant is out sick or on vacation and no one else in the office knows where or how things are filed.
If you used an indexing system such as Paper Tiger Filing System Software for document management, you wouldn’t have this problem. You could give your assistant the information needed to quickly and easily find the documents you need, saving you not only time, but money as well.
Worldwide, thousands of businesses, government agencies, non-profits and individuals use The Paper Tiger software to manage their filing. They have discovered a filing system that uses the power of their computer to solve their problems with paper once and for all!
These organizations and individuals have found Paper Tiger software to be an invaluable tool to help them better manage their office and get organized to stay on top of the virtual mountain of paperwork that they must deal with each day. It is simply the best filing system available. You get all the power of the computer without the risks and time commitment of paper scanning!
An indexing system for your document management saves a company money and it saves time every year because you won’t have to waste a lot of time searching for files you need. Just think how productive your staff can be. It’s like having more hours in the day to accomplish necessary tasks.
Some managers want to ensure Paper Tiger document management software and filing system is the right program for their offices, and others want to be sure the money they spend is worth the investment. Let’s alleviate some of these concerns.
One question we’re asked often is what happens if my computer crashes or goes down. What will I do since all of the information is stored on the computer (for the desktop version)? There are a couple of ways to handle this. One suggestion is to print out a File Index report with all of the information that you’ve indexed into the database.
Another option is to do a back up of your entire computer and save it at another location. An external hard drive works well for this, and backing up your computer is always good practice.
For the online version of Paper Tiger, it is best practice to print out a file index report of your database in case your Internet connection is down for any reason. As far as your database is concerned, it is housed on our secure servers hosted by Amazon Web Services and backups are performed nightly.
For some, if not all companies, security and privacy is a huge issue. When your file folders are arranged by contact name, company name, or other pertinent information, it’s easier for someone to look in those files and access confidential information. When you use an indexing system that uses numbers, it isn’t nearly as easy for someone to locate sensitive data.
Training is another big issue for some companies. They need to make the most of their time and money. The Paper Tiger indexing system is easy to learn and it’s easy to train others to use. The more you use the system, the easier it becomes.
We’re also asked how we can say that Paper Tiger saves 150 hours a year when it takes so long to create the index? When you consider using an indexing system, you need to look at the entire picture. Yes, it will take time to create your index, but compared to the time spent searching for files, it takes much less time in the long run. And you’ll really be surprised at how little time it does take to implement Paper Tiger in your office. Start slow and work your way up to larger quantities of files. Before you know it, your entire office will be indexed and neatly filed in the filing cabinets instead of stacks and stacks of files on top of everyone’s desks! And your office will look more organized with less clutter.
An indexing system for document management is worth every second of investment and time spent setting it up. You’ll see the difference almost immediately. Once they get in the habit of indexing new files that come into the office, they won’t mind filing since they will know they will be able to find the file again with a quick search in the database and without a lengthy search through stacks of paper files on their desk.
You won’t have to worry about staff turnover or the one person in the office who does the filing being the only person who knows where everything is. A quick search in the database by anyone in the office will reveal where the file is located no matter who filed it under what item name.
After just a few days of using Paper Tiger, you’ll feel comfortable with it and you’ll wonder how you survived without it. You’ll feel better about your document management system and you’ll know you made a smart choice. Your employees will be more productive, you’ll spend less time searching for files, and you’ll spend even less time filing new documents or re-filing documents you’ve pulled, simply because you chose to implement Paper Tiger Filing System Software for document management.
