Cloud-based services have irrevocably transformed the way we use, store, and share content. The shift toward cloud document management for many small businesses has been at a slower pace, but the technology is making the transition affordable and accessible. Here are the top three ways the cloud is changing small businesses.
Simplifies IT Infrastructures
Outsourcing resources such as data storage to a cloud provider enables you to delegate the administrative burden. It also eliminates the need to purchase servers in anticipation of future demand because you can scale up or down as your capacity needs change.

Digital technologies such as document management systems and cloud technology are taking over businesses across the country. To stay current with the competition, you will need to start integrating these services into your everyday needs of your business.
Software Accessible In and Out of the Office
In order to make your company grow, you likely need to send employees to clients’ locations in order to seal deals. These workers still need access to important documents even while they are away, so you should find cloud storage options that are compatible with both the computers you have in your office and with employees’ smartphones.

It seems like many offices have trouble with filing and storing documents in a way that is efficient and space-sensitive. Document storage typically takes up a great deal of space with bulky file cabinets and boxes in supply closets.
With electronic document management systems, you can transform those documents and file cabinets into digital copies. Scan and upload your documents, attaching tags and sorting them for easy file retrieval later on. Save yourself a great deal of time on an ongoing basis by filing documents electronically as opposed to physically in file cabinets.

Look around you right now. What do you see? Is it an office space, complete with a water cooler, a coffee mug or two, and the occasional procrastinator? Is it a personal office, with pictures on the walls and bookshelves full to the brim with books you've never really read? Is it a room without a specific purpose, the one that's a little bit of everything? Wherever you are, the chances are high that there's at least one stack of paper within arm's reach, maybe closer. The truth is, today's world uses a lot of paper. We communicate with documents. We keep records with files. We write notes, test pens, and idly sketch during boring conference meetings—all using paper. So how can we handle all of this paper in a way that improves efficiency and protects budget?

Since there have been documents, businesses have been trying to manage their storage and retrieval. In modern years, organizations have been replacing the difficult process of producing, filing and recovering documents with high-tech document management systems. There are several document management systems in the marketplace, but many offer similar benefits and functionality.
Document management is a simple enough concept. At its most basic level, document management provides your company with digital organization, storage, and retrieval of your most valuable asset: your collective knowledge. But beyond these simple functions are tools that can boost productivity and enhance your competitive edge.
