We don’t tend to think about what would happen if our office flooded, mainly because we don’t want it ever to happen! Unfortunately, wishful thinking does not stop disasters from occurring. If your data isn’t prepared for a natural disaster, it’s time to get started.
What’s At Risk
When a fire overtakes a building or flooding ruins paper documents, that data is gone forever. If there is no extra protection for your files, your ability to regain standard business procedures will be at a standstill. By leaving your documents susceptible to natural disasters, you risk not being able to get back up and running as quickly as possible. There is also the issue of leaving client information open to harm. Choosing to prepare your data for a natural disaster shows you are thinking about your client every step of the way.
Paper is in no way running the risk of becoming obsolete. Many tasks and projects require physical documentation. That being said, technology continues to push us into the digital age. Document management is a system that stores and archives your files for quick and simple retrieval. Using document management to store your files means your data is safe from natural disasters and will be accessible during and after an event.
