We live in an age where technology has created bots that automate repetitive tasks and artificial intelligence streamlines workflows—but that’s not happening across the business world. Not even close. In fact, it looks like paper usage is set to go up by 0.5% until 2022. Up! That’s crazy.

Posted by Larry Karatsoreos on Jun 17, 2015 9:35:00 AM

No matter what size or type of company you are, storing all of your documents in filing cabinets can be a real hassle – and even a danger. Not only can it be unorganized and difficult to manage but the risk of losing or damaging the documents is great and in that case you would lose important records. Yet thanks to rapid developments in technology, it is becoming increasingly more popular (and easier) to go paperless. At MES Hybrid Document Systems, electronically archiving documents is one of our specialties.

  1. It eliminates paper waste and is more environmentally friendly
  2. It allows you to organize your files in a consolidated, easy-to-access place that can be accessed virtually anywhere you have an Internet connection.

Archiving Documents for Safety

Posted by admin on Oct 11, 2012 6:50:07 PM

If you really want to protect your important documents online and offline, the best way to do that is to archive them.

You can have your documents archived online so they're "in the cloud" but still completely protected from hackers and other harm. There's minimal risk, but there's a lot of benefits to having your documents backed up in a location that's not on your computer or in your home.
