In 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic flipped the corporate world on its head. It fast-tracked digital transformation, propelled brick-and-mortar businesses into online models, and pushed traditional organizations to adopt new-age remote work options.
Hundreds of thousands of students pass through the school system annually. The volume of records that academic institutions must maintain grow year after year: attendance sheets, exam report cards, academic transcripts, exchanges, and documents related to student loans, scholarships, and sponsorships.
Education institutes are legally required to preserve some of these records over long periods. In the past, these records were largely paper-based. Millions of pages were filed, stored in cabinets, and stuffed into basements and storage spaces, with entire rooms dedicated to storing these legacy records.
Your brand is a valuable asset. Brand value is what determines whether people believe in your company’s products and services and on turn become your customers. Improve your customers’ experience with your products or services, and you strengthen their belief in your company's capabilities.
Documents and data reflect an organization's collective activity and progress. Business documents can be of various types and the status of these documents in the company’s storage systems changes constantly. There are project blueprints, plans, work-in-progress files, project completion reports and employee records. It is important to protect these documents from unauthorized access, save them from accidental deletion and preserve them from damage due to system failures and disasters.

Digitizing documents and “going digital” has been happening for a while now (like 2 decades), but many companies are doing a half-job of it. Paper still exists in the office, and a lot of it is in the form of junk mail—that you don’t even want.
Paper creates obstacles. And, since you aren’t a fan of paper obstacles, you signed on to digitize your workflows. Check! But that was years ago. (And if you haven’t digitized your workflow, find out how much that will cost). Fast forward a few years and, as a savvy systems administrator, you recognize that there are still paper bottlenecks happening. And you aim to stop them, by golly!
Paper doesn't just harm the environment and your company’s productivity—and therefore your revenue—paper also harms your reputation: 87% of consumers surveyed say they look more positively on a company if they run 100% paper free. And that's how you want your customers to see your company.
Your company made the switch to digital and you haven’t looked back. Things are more productive than ever, you’re saving money hand over fist in your new smaller space (because all those archived documents converted into invisible files that don’t require a 3000 square foot facility), and your data security is lock-tight—oh yeah!
