Most businesses wage a constant battle against both time and space. There’s never enough time to DO everything and there’s never enough places to PUT everything. Especially when it comes to the forest of paperwork in any accounting department.
At The Network Support Company, we’ve transitioned from 40 file cabinets to a grand total of one in just a few months’ time, by scanning and electronically saving all of our vendor invoices and original documents. In the process, we’ve created less work, more space, reduced our accounting department staffing, AND we’ve helped the environment by going green/paperless.
We’re bringing awareness to this today because it’s entirely possible – probable, even – that smaller companies just aren’t aware of how easy and simple it is to implement the transition to paperless. There are a myriad of excellent programs on the market; virtually any company can find one that serves its specific needs. Not even sure what you might require, or how to start the process? This is something that TNSC can easily do for our customers.
Here’s our story.
Back in the day, when we started this company about 19 years ago, and for years following, we hired a high school student to work part-time just to file our invoices and other documents into what would grow to 40 cabinets lining our office. That took time, cost the company money and, although our worker was great, documents would sometimes get misfiled. In most cases, that little hiccup would go undiscovered until often months later when someone needed to see that particular invoice. And it was lost somewhere in the murky depths, with no way to simply conjure it into existence.
