With fierce and frequent thunderstorms in the Northeast, fires in California, flooding in the Midwest and a well-above average Hurricane season predicted, it seems like unusual weather patterns are becoming the norm. Isn’t it amazing how we become engrossed in our changing climate and its effect on our lives, yet the idea of a disaster actually hitting us always seems so remote.
In truth, the probability of being effected by a major catastrophe is relatively low, but even less spectacular disasters can wreak havoc on our lives and businesses. A fire in your building, a blackout in the midst of the hot summer, a crane crashing through your offices can all stop your business dead in its track.
Unfortunately, over 60% of companies confronted by a major disaster close within two years.* That’s a lot of companies who could have easily avoided going out of business had they had a disaster recovery plan!
What’s this got to do with document imaging, you ask?
Digiscribe offers a painless way to protect your business-critical documents during disasters by converting them from paper-based to electronic files that are stored off-site on our secure, cloud-based repository. This way, your documents are always protected and always available—even during unforeseen events or catastrophes.
Our document management services provide disaster recovery, business continuity—and peace of mind—knowing that you can:
- Protect irreplaceable documents in a secure, fully-redundant, off-site facility.
- Ensure business continuity during an unexpected event.
- Access business-critical documents 24X7, from any computer.
- Minimize downtime and disruption to your customers.
- Meet regulatory compliance requirements for document security.
You may be thinking you have a disaster recovery plan as all of your data is backed up and off site. That’s great as you can reload them onto your computer. But what about all the accounting files, HR records, contracts, proof-of-delivery papers, and other business critical documents? Ask yourself one simple question; “if a disaster hit in my area, how long would it take my business to get back up and going?”
Our secure, electronic document management solutions are so easy to use and painless to implement, you’ll wonder why it took you so long to go paperless.
