Why should you use a document management system?

Why should you use a document management system?

What is a document management system?

A document management system (DMS), is the use of a computer system and software to store, manage and track electronic document and electronic images of paper based information captured through the use of a document scanner. It is how your organisation stores, manages and tracks its electronic documents. Document management is the software that controls and organises documents throughout an organisation. It incorporates document and content capture, workflow, document repositories, COLD/ERM, and output systems, and information retrieval systems. Also the processes used to track, store and control documents.

Document management is one of the precursor technologies to content management. It provides some of the most basic functionality to content management, imposing controls and management capabilities. Some features in document management:

  • Check-in/Check-out and locking – to coordinate the simultaneous editing of a document so one person’s changes don’t overwrite another’s
  • Version controlso tabs can be kept on how the current document came to be, and how it differs from the versions that came before
  • Roll-backto ‘activate’ a prior version in case of an error or premature release
  • Audit trailto permit the reconstruction of who did what to a document during the course of its life in the system
  • Annotation and stamps

Document management systems today range in size and scope from small, standalone system to large scale enterprise-wide configurations serving a global audience. Many document management systems provide a means to incorporate standard physical document filing practices electronically. These include:

  • Storage location
  • Security and access control
  • Version control
  • Audit trails
  • Check-in/Check-out and document lockdown

Issues with paper filing:

Space – one of the biggest downfalls of using a paper based filing system is the amount of space it can take up. Whilst at first your business will be small enough that it is not a huge deal, but eventually you might find yourself taking up rooms just to fit the files in. This also can mean you will have to go out of your way to hunt down files. This can interrupt you and your employee’s productivity levels, as rather than focusing on your work, your time gets taken up by looking for paper documents. Whereas if you had a DMS all documents are readily available after quick index search.

Damages and Misplacementpaper document filing means you are placing faith in those handling the files. There are many ways they can be damaged, lost or misplaced. A fire or natural disaster could mean the loss of all your clients’ important information. You will have to start over trying to get the information back. It can lead to you losing clients who don’t appreciate mishandling of their information.

Difficult to make changes when working with paper documents it is much harder to make changes. Every time you want to make a change you will have to make a copy, so you don’t destroy the original with any edits or comments you might add. This means the editing process is more time consuming than if you were working with digital copies.

Time consuming paper document filing is very time consuming. Not only do you have to organise and store the files, hunting down the information when it’s needed can take time. It can take anywhere from minutes to hours to hunt down a file, depending on how well your organisation is. This can cause annoyance for clients as well as for employees. Their productivity is lowered by having to spend excessive time dealing with a paper filing system.

Lack of security – Paper documents can be less secure than electronic filing systems. Misplaced documents can easily be placed in the wrong hands. Clients expect their information to be secure in your hands. If you can’t keep this safe, you are at risk of losing them. A cabinet filed with files is far easier to access than a computer which requires a password and credentials to get into.

High cost ­– when you use paper documents your costs are going to be higher because you are paying for ink and paper. Your office supply bill will be higher if you are using a paper document system. Whilst you might think this is insignificant, overtime it’s a lot of money that can be used in better way.  

Benefits:

Reduced physical storagewith office space getting more expensive as time goes on, paying for space to store paper document can be out of the question. Switching to a document management system means you can scan and upload the paper that’s taking office space, allowing you to shred these documents and reclaim your space.

Lower costspaper can cost a fortune over a year’s time, especially when used as a vehicle for dispensing information to employees. A document management system is not only more capable of handling this and other tasks, but the amount of money that can be saved by making the switch is impressive.

Save time – when documents are piled into filing cabinets, finding something quickly can be exceptionally difficult, one of the major features and benefits of a document management system is that you and your staff can instantly access whatever documents you may need, regardless of where you are. Employee efficiency is a time-saver. Business-wise or otherwise, time saved is money saved.

Indexing – regardless of how well-organised a filing system you may have, there’s simply too much potential for error with physical documents. A document management system will provide you and your staff with robust indexing capabilities, allowing you to know exactly where everything is at all times. With tags, categories, subcategories, and metadata to mark your files and documents, they become easier to organize, locate, and retrieve for future use. A search using the appropriate keywords can yield results in a matter of seconds.

Going green – going green is increasing in importance. People and companies everywhere are taking steps to lower their impact on the environment. Running a green business isn’t always easy, but one of the best ways to make lasting changes is to move towards utilizing a document management system. Thousands of sheets of paper per month can be saved by taking this step, which translates not only to a more environmentally-friendly business model, but reduced costs as well

Security – when documents are not managed, the possibility of important information being exposed to the wrong people in considerable. Vital, sensitive information falling into the wrong hands can bring irreversible damage to a business. Document management software solutions will let you safeguard confidential business information through rigorous security policies and role-based access control where authorised users alone were allowed to view certain files or documents.

GDPR:

GDPR is the General Data Protection Regulation, a regulation that requires businesses to protect the personal data and privacy of EU citizens for transactions that occur within EU member states. And non-compliance could cost companies dearly. It standardises data protection laws across all 28 EU countries and imposes strict new rules on controlling and processing personally identifiable information (PII), it also extends the protection of personal data and data protection rights by giving control back to EU residents. These new rights allow people to access the information companies’ hold about them, obligations for better data management for businesses, and a new regime of fines. The GDPR sets high standards in terms of privacy, security and compliance.

Under GDPR, the data protection principles set out the main responsibilities for organisations. Below are 7 privacy principles from Article 5 of the GDPR requires that personal data shall be:

  1. Lawfulness, fairness and transparency – “a) processed lawfully, fairly and in a transparent manner in relation to individuals;” – personal information collected to deliver a good or service must be done so lawfully and fairly, and individuals must be told what their personal information will be used for. Personal information can only be collected with the individual’s consent, and a record of this consent must be kept
  2. Purpose limitations – “b) collected for specified, explicit and legitimate purposes and not further processed in a manner that is incompatible with those purposes; further processing for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes shall not be considered to be incompatible with the initial purposes;” – personal information may only be collected for a specific and legitimate purpose and not for a new, incompatible purpose (unless consent for this new purpose is gained)
  3. Data minimisation – “c) adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary in relation to the purposes for which they are processed;” – the processing of personal information needs to be limited to what is necessary in order to achieve the processing purpose
  4. Accuracy – “d) accurate and, where necessary, kept up to date; every reasonable step must be taken to ensure that personal data that are inaccurate, having regard to the purposes for which they are processed, are erased or rectified without delay;” – personal information must be collected accurately and kept up to date in order to avoid risk to the individual. Inaccurate information must be erased or corrected without delay
  5. Storage limitations – “e) kept in a form which permits identification of data subjects for no longer than is necessary for the purposes for which the personal data are processed; personal data may be stored for longer periods insofar as the personal data will be processed solely for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes subject to implementation of the appropriate technical and organisational measures required by the GDPR in order to safeguard the rights and freedoms of individuals; and” – personal information may be stored only for as long as necessary in relation to the processing purpose, with the expectation that it will be kept longer for scientific purposes and/or archiving purposes in the public interest
  6. Integrity and confidentiality – “f) processed in a manner that ensures appropriate security of the personal data, including protection against unauthorised or unlawful processing and against accidental loss, destruction or damage, using appropriate technical or organisational measures.” – holders of personal information are responsible for keeping it secure from internal threats such as unauthorised use, accidental loss and damage, as well as external threats such as cybercrime
  7. Accountability – Article 5(1) requires that: “the controller shall be responsible for, and be able to demonstrate, compliance with the principles.” – holders of personal information need to implement technical and organisational measures to ensure that processing activities are carried out according to the data protection regulation

Using a document management system (DMS) can help with GDPR compliance. A Document management system stores, manages and tracks electronic documents and electronic images of paper-based information captured through the use of a document scanner (our sister company Scanner Superstore sells scanners such as Canon and Brother, click here to view the range of scanners we offer). DMS ultimately controls and organises documents throughout an organisation. One of our most popular DMS is FileDirector. Using a document management system can help comply with the 7 principles, to ensure your company are following the GDPR fundamental conditions you must follow when collecting, processing and managing the personal information data for all European citizens.

GDPR

GDPR

GDPR comes into effect on May 25th 2018, it will change how businesses and public sector organisations can handle the information of their customers. It brings a 21st century approach to data protection, expanding the rights of individuals to control how their personal data is collected and processed, and places a range of new obligations on organisations to be more accountable for data protection.

What is GDPR?

GDPR is the General Data Protection Regulation, a regulation that requires businesses to protect the personal data and privacy of EU citizens for transactions that occur within EU member states. And non-compliance could cost companies dearly. It standardises data protection laws across all 28 EU countries and imposes strict new rules on controlling and processing personally identifiable information (PII), it also extends the protection of personal data and data protection rights by giving control back to EU residents. These new rights allow people to access the information companies’ hold about them, obligations for better data management for businesses, and a new regime of fines. The GDPR sets high standards in terms of privacy, security and compliance.

There are many essential items in the regulation, including increased fines, breach notifications, opt-in consent and responsibility for data transfer outside the EU. As a result, the impact to businesses is huge and will permanently change the way customer data is collected, stored and used. GDPR applies to all organisations holding and processing EU resident’s personal data, regardless of geographic location. If an organisation offers goods or services to or monitors the behaviour of EU residents, it must meet GDPR compliance requirements.

Organisations that do not comply with the GDPR may receive fines of up for €20 million or 4% of their total global revenue, whichever is larger. This is the maximum fine that can be imposed for the most serious violations, e.g. not having sufficient customer consent to process data or violating core privacy by design concepts. There is a tiered approach to fines, e.g. a company can be fined 2% for not having their records in order, not notifying the supervising authority and data subject about a breach, or not conducting an impact assessment.

Key Principles:

Under GDPR, the data protection principles set out the main responsibilities for organisations. Below are 7 privacy principles which form the fundamental conditions which organisations must follow when collecting, processing and managing the personal information data for all European citizens. Article 5 of the GDPR requires that personal data shall be:

  1. Lawfulness, fairness and transparency“a) processed lawfully, fairly and in a transparent manner in relation to individuals;” – personal information collected to deliver a good or service must be done so lawfully and fairly, and individuals must be told what their personal information will be used for. Personal information can only be collected with the individual’s consent, and a record of this consent must be kept
  2. Purpose limitations – “b) collected for specified, explicit and legitimate purposes and not further processed in a manner that is incompatible with those purposes; further processing for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes shall not be considered to be incompatible with the initial purposes;” – personal information may only be collected for a specific and legitimate purpose and not for a new, incompatible purpose (unless consent for this new purpose is gained)
  3. Data minimisation – “c) adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary in relation to the purposes for which they are processed;” – the processing of personal information needs to be limited to what is necessary in order to achieve the processing purpose
  4. Accuracy – “d) accurate and, where necessary, kept up to date; every reasonable step must be taken to ensure that personal data that are inaccurate, having regard to the purposes for which they are processed, are erased or rectified without delay;” – personal information must be collected accurately and kept up to date in order to avoid risk to the individual. Inaccurate information must be erased or corrected without delay
  5. Storage limitations – “e) kept in a form which permits identification of data subjects for no longer than is necessary for the purposes for which the personal data are processed; personal data may be stored for longer periods insofar as the personal data will be processed solely for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes subject to implementation of the appropriate technical and organisational measures required by the GDPR in order to safeguard the rights and freedoms of individuals; and” – personal information may be stored only for as long as necessary in relation to the processing purpose, with the expectation that it will be kept longer for scientific purposes and/or archiving purposes in the public interest
  6. Integrity and confidentiality – “f) processed in a manner that ensures appropriate security of the personal data, including protection against unauthorised or unlawful processing and against accidental loss, destruction or damage, using appropriate technical or organisational measures.” – holders of personal information are responsible for keeping it secure from internal threats such as unauthorised use, accidental loss and damage, as well as external threats such as cybercrime
  7. Accountability – Article 5(1) requires that: “the controller shall be responsible for, and be able to demonstrate, compliance with the principles.” – holders of personal information need to implement technical and organisational measures to ensure that processing activities are carried out according to the data protection regulation

The introduction of the ‘accountability’ requirement to the new regulation is perhaps the most significant advance since the Data Protection Directive 1995, and compels holders of personal information to be 100 percent answerable for the way they collect, process and store it.

These 7 principles give an overview of the areas covered by the new regulation, however they do not delved into nuances of consent and other articles of GDPR, nor the complexities of data flow mapping, lineage and coordination activates association with implementing a programme to meet GDPR compliance.

Types of privacy data GDPR protects:

The GDPR applies to personal data. This is any information that can directly or indirectly identify a natural person, and can be in any format. The regulation places much stronger controls on the processing of special categories of personal data. The inclusion of genetic and biometric data is new.

Personal data:

  • Basic identity information such as name, address, email address and ID numbers
  • Web data such as location, IP address, cookie data and RFID tags
  • Photo
  • Location data
  • Profiling and analytics data

Special categories of personal data:

  • Health and genetic data
  • Trade union membership
  • Biometric data (facial recognition, fingerprint)
  • Racial or ethnic data
  • Religion
  • Political opinions
  • Sexual orientation

Which companies does GDPR affect?

Any company that stores or processes personal information about EU citizens within EU states must comply with GDPR, even if they do not have a business presence within the EU. Specific criteria for companies required to comply are:

  • A presence in an EU country
  • No presence in the EU, but it processes personal data of European residents
  • More than 250 employees
  • Fewer than 250 employees but its data-processing impacts the rights and freedoms of data subjects, is not occasional, or includes certain types of sensitive personal data

Business benefits of GDPR:

  • Build customer trust
  • Improve brand image and reputation
  • Improve data governance
  • Improve information security
  • Improve competitive advantage

Prepare your business for GDPR:

When implemented, GDPR will have a varying impact on businesses and organisation: for instance, not every company requires a data protection officer. DPO’s  are not always necessary if personal information is not processed at all, if personal data is only processed on a small scale, or the main activities of the organisation rarely involve monitoring data subject, even then Article 29 encourages appointing a DPO on a voluntary basis and the organisation should keep records of processes and data breaches.

Use of document management systems:

Using a document management system (DMS) can help with GDPR compliance. A Document management system stores, manages and tracks electronic documents and electronic images of paper-based information captured through the use of a document scanner (here at Scanner Superstore, we sell scanners such as Canon and Brother, click here to view the range of scanners we offer). DMS ultimately controls and organises documents throughout an organisation. One of our most popular DMS is FileDirector. FileDirector is the future for the administration, and distribution of information, because it decreases considerably the time taken to manage and access all of the information within an organisation, allowing you to become more efficient and productive, whilst reducing costs. Security in any document management solution is vital, therefore FileDirector lets you have complete control over document access, activity auditing, revision control, retention control, and automatic storage of documents and emails.

When it comes to fulfilling a subject access request under GDPR FileDirector has a build in web interface which allows documents to be shared securely through an online portal. This can be placed on a company website and accessing the required documents would be a case of sharing a one-time use login with the person making the request and uploading their documents for them to access. When fulfilling a subject access request under GDPR the documents could be sent by post and email however this is less secure, more costly and is not a good long term solution for sharing thousands of documents.

The right of access – under the GDPR, individuals will have the right to obtain access to their personal data, so that they are aware of and can verify the lawfulness of the processing. The information provided to the individual making the request must be done using “reasonable means” and within one month of request. Compliance without the use of appropriate technology, such as a DMS may prove difficult. By using a document management system such as FileDirector, information stored together in one setting is accessed quickly and easily and can efficiently be sent to the individual requesting ‘the right of Access’ within the set timescale. All user actions within FileDirector have audit trails, recycle bins and can be included in system-wide searched and documents cannot be accidentally deleted; providing confidence that all the right data is located and can easily be passed on. At the point of scanning, key index fields can be collected from a document, information such as order numbers and dates as well as personal information such as D.O.B, names and addresses can all be indexed to allow easy but secure access to customer documents. FileDirector makes this easy by allowing hundreds of documents to be complied through simple use of index fields which can then be sent to the person making the request.

Privacy by design – privacy by design is an approach that promotes privacy and data protection. Data controllers must put technical and organisational measures such as pseudonymisation (the separation of data from direct identifiers so that linkage to an identity is not possible without additional information that is held separately) in place – to minimise personal data processing. Using FileDirector can help ensure everyone is working in the same manner and to the same procedures and can also show strong compliance by evidencing all communications and involvement with a client as well as controlling who has access to what data e.g. clear audit trails. Strict privacy controls govern who has access to what data, with configurable permissions to control what data users can access and what they can do with it. Should the regulator require evidence, a DMS can easily aid with this; showing that steps have been taken to ensure compliance. FileDirector allows you to assign individual users or departments into groups giving them permissions to view or edit certain documents.

Breach notification standards – the GDPR will introduce a duty on all organisations to report certain types of data breaches to the relevant supervisory authority, and in some cases to the individuals affected within 72 hours of becoming aware of the breach. In the unlikely event any breach of data should occur, this can be identified and reported immediately using a DMS such as FileDirector; something that is nearly impossible to do when dealing with paper documentation in various locations. FileDirector, can help streamline investigations with its revision and access control features allowing you to monitor who has accessed documents and what changes have been made. With GDPR also stressing privacy, a document management system can ensure data is not accessed mistakenly and is stored in a secure manner, where the loss, damage and even theft that paperwork could be subjected to is eliminated.

What is a document management system?

A document management system is the use of a computer system and software to store, manage and track electronic images of paper based information captured through the use of a document scanner. It is how your organisation stores, manages and tracks its electronic documents. Document management is the software that control and organises documents throughout an organisation. It incorporates documents and content capture, workflow and document repositories, COLD/ERM, and output systems, and information retrieval systems. Also the processes used to track, store and control documents.

Document management is one of the precursor technologies to content management. It provides some of the most basic functionality to content management, imposing controls and management capabilities. Some key features in a document management system:

  • Check in/check out and locking, to coordinate the simultaneous editing of a document so one persons changes don’t overwrite another’s
  • Version control, so tabs can be kept on how the current document came to be, and how it differs from the versions that came before
  • Roll-back, to ‘activate’ a prior version in case of an error or premature release
  • Audit trail, to permit the reconstruction of who did what to a document during the course of its life in the system
  • Annotation and stamps
  • Storage location
  • Security and access control

We offer a variety of document management systems. These include:

  • FileDirector
  • ScanFile

Telecommuting, benefits and tips!

Telecommuting, benefits and tips!

Telecommuting is also known as e-commuting or working from home, generically described as work that can be done from a remote location, i.e. outside a traditional office or workplace setting. It is a work arrangement in which the employee works outside the office, often working from home or a location close to home, i.e. coffee shop. Rather than travelling to the office, the employee will telecommunicate with co-workers and employers via telephone and email. The employee may sometimes go to the office to attend meetings or touch base with the employer. However, there are other options such as conference calls, which means the employee does not need to visit the office.

Levels of telecommuting:

  • 100% Telecommuting: this category includes virtual jobs and other positions that are 100% commuting. These jobs may involve being part of a distributed team, working for a completely virtual company, or working for a more traditional company that offer 100% virtual work options
  • Most Telecommuting: roles that are mostly telecommuting, may require workers to spend at least part of their work schedule in a traditional office depending on the job, you could be free to telecommute for most of your work schedule, but require to come into traditional workplace setting at least some of the time
  • Some Telecommuting: Jobs that offer some telecommuting may mean working anywhere from a day or two, a week to several days a month in an office or other non-virtual work setting
  • Option for Telecommuting: the term optional sums up this category. A job with an option for telecommuting may lay out the terms of the telecommuting option upfront, or it could mean it’s up to you to negotiate with the employer to reach a mutual agreement about how often you can telecommute and the conditions for completing your work assignments.

Benefits for employers:

There are a number of potential benefits for employers when they establish well-designed telecommuting programs for their employees. Below are some benefits:

  • Increased productivity: while it might seem out-of-sight employees will take advantage of opportunities to slack off, studies indicate the opposite. Studies show that in one case productivity increased by 13% when employees worked from home. Another study found that telecommuters worked on average, 5 to 7 hours longer than their in-office counterparts
  • Reduced turnover: Employee turnover can be a costly proposition for a business. Studies have shown that employees who are able to telecommute tend to be much happier than their in-office counterparts. When employees are happy, they are typically less likely to leave a position, which can add up savings for employers in the long run
  • Increase morale: ­this, too, can have an impact on turnover. Employees who are able to work from home and enjoy a better work/life balance tend to feel more valued. A study showed that telecommuters tend to be less stressed and happier than traditional office workers
  • Environmentally friendly: telecommuting takes the commute out of the working equation. For eco-conscious companies, this can be a big win
  • Economically sound: employees aren’t the only ones who can enjoy financial benefits associated with telecommuting. Company can save a large amount of money annually on each employee who telecommutes.

Benefits for employee:

  • Greater flexibility: most telecommuting jobs have very flexible work schedules allowing you to focus on other tasks that equally matter with ease, such as attending to household chores, taking care of children
  • Greater fulfilment: generally, you would be happier and more fulfilled than those who work under the traditional working arrangement. This is brought about by a number of factors, including flexible work schedules, minimal supervisions and lack of commuting to and from work
  • More savings: telecommuting requires no formal attire, no commuting expenses and no parking fees (or other means of transportation and costs), you are therefore capable of saving more money which can significantly bolster your disposable income.
  • Increased independence: telecommuting negates the need for constant reminders, direct supervisions from the mangers and bosses and also offers less stringent working environments. For those reasons you’d be much freer and more independent which contributes to greater fulfilment and productivity
  • Suitability to vulnerable persons: telecommuting offers a plausible alternative for the disabled, physically handicapped or mothers who may find it difficult to cope with traditional modes of working and it is the only way they can be co-opted into gainful employment

Tips for telecommuters:

Working from home opens up a range of possibilities for the way business can work and structure themselves. As well as opportunities, home working brings new responsibilities for the employer and employee. Such as flexible working regulations. Working from home is good on so many levels, not having to commute saves money and time and can make you happier. However, there are many challenges, here are 10 tips to help!

  1. Identify a plancreate a daily plan of tasks which need to be completed by the end of the day
  2. Use the Cloud – log in from anywhere and never worry about having files with you
  3. Regular Routine get dressed, shower, and act as if you were going into an office.
  4. Leave the house – leaving the house separates work and personal time, even if it’s going to work in a coffee shop
  5. Enjoy flexibility – focus wavering? Take a break, go for a walk, help to get the creative juices flowing
  6. Comfortable Office – a comfortable environment with a comfortable chair means you’re more inclined to stay working, therefore you’ll be more productive
  7. Google + hangout – not always possible to meet in person if working all over google + is great for 10 people – similar to skype
  8. Working hours – post hours on your door, pretend you’re not home/don’t answer the door/doctors’ appointments. Stop light for family members.
  9. Meet in person – Ensure to meet in person every few months – for kinaesthetic learning, white boarding ideas
  10. Check in with boss – check in with the boss and co-works throughout the day, emailing/calling
