Digital Transformation, Part 2: Digital Organization

Nine Peaks Solutions | Digital Transformation


To the tune of Olivia Newton-John’s let’s get physical: Let’s get organized, organized; I want to get organized…Okay, now that you have visuals of leotards and headbands let’s talk digital transformation.

In part 1 we discussed the first phase of digital transformation – digitizing documents. All your historical and current documents are all digital. You may still have paper processes, but you’re scanning the papers at the end of your process. This is great but how do you organize and access the information? Did you know the average office employee spends at least 1.5 hours a day looking for stuff? Say your office assistant makes $15/hr. They may be spending almost $6,000 a year just looking for documents. Multiply that by all your staff. The moral of the math problem? Being unorganized is expensive.

That brings us to phase two of the digital transformation – organizing your documents. This phase is all about creating efficiencies. Being able to find information efficiently is challenging for many organizations. During this phase, we’re adding metadata (think keywords) to documents making them easy to search, share, and organize – without sacrificing security.

There are many rewards to organizing your documents from minimizing data entry and redundancies to increasing collaboration and adding security.

Has your company completed the first and second phases of the digital transformation model? If yes, stay tuned for phase three, automating your processes. If you haven’t completed phase one and two contact us and we can show you how to get there.
