Reclaim Costs With HR Document Scanning

hr banner3
Human Resources departments up and down the country are leaking money from company budgets daily and you might not even realise it but with document scanning, those costs can be reclaimed from various different areas.

How Are You Wasting Money?

With the current situation in your Human Resources department, you could be wasting money in a number of ways without even realising…Man overwhelmed by paperwork

Storage (Off-site and in office)

With hard-copy storage, there are two main locations the files can be stored in. Either they are taking up a great deal of valuable office space or you have decided to store them in off-site storage facilities and incur annual storage costs. Whichever method you choose, you are losing money regularly for something as simple as document storage.

Wasted Time & Unproductive Tasks

With a system as inefficient as paper document storage, it is almost guaranteed that you are wasting a lot of time (up to 30% according to studies) searching for documents, re-filing and other admin tasks and that isn’t even mentioning the tasks that turn out to be unproductive because a file is lost or unavailable at the time. Time is money and with this much wasted just imagine what it’s doing to your profits.

Paper, Ink and Printing

This is a more obvious budget drainer. You can actually see the costs on your invoices regularly yet many companies still don’t take steps to reduce the amount of physical paperwork they are producing.

Poor Reputation With Clients

If your customer service is poor due to slow file retrieval and bad all-round file management then this will have a direct effect on your reputation with current clients as well as potential clients. If they don’t feel like they are getting/will get good service from you, they will turn to one of your competitors instead. Obviously, loss of clients can have a very damaging effect on profits so it’s definitely something that needs to be addressed.

If you’re worried your HR department may be experiencing lost money due to any of the above then don’t worry there is a solution and it’s a good one.

HR Document Scanningsaving money1

Scanning HR documents and storing them digitally instead will provide a successful solution to those issues with cost. The storage of digital documents will abolish extortionate storage costs because, provided the digital copies are fully backed up and secure, you will no longer need to store the original paper documents. Digital documents are also much more flexible and reliable as they can be fully indexed and retrieved instantly. There is minimal chance of losing files and even when they are they can be found through text searches of relevant data. Files can be shared quickly too and via various methods reducing the need to print documents out. Digital business processes will reduce the costs spent on printing and sending files. Overall, the benefits that going digital will bring to the efficiency and budget of the company can then be transferred to the services you provide for your customers. This will give off a much better impression and maybe even persuade customers to join and stay with your company.

Other Benefits

Not only does document scanning for HR offer annual and immediate cost savings for your business, you can also benefit from a range of other things too;

  • Reclaimed Space
  • Time Savings
  • Improved Security
  • Boosted Efficiency
  • Environment
  • Morale

HR Document Scanning Solutions

hr records management
How would you like a tailor-made scanning service specially designed for the HR sector? Pearl Scan can help, but let's start from the beginning.

What is HR Document Scanning?

We know that offices in Human Resources departments generate a lot of paper and most of that paper is required to be stored for future reference. Documents such as contracts, employee details, P45's and medical records can take up a significant amount of space in offices. It can also be costly to store so Pearl Scan offer a solution which means you can keep those important documents but they will no longer take up all that space. Scanning HR documents and keeping them in digital format rather than the hard copy alternative is a solution that many HR departments have found perfect for their needs.

What happens when the documents are scanned?hr goes digital

Once we have scanned your HR documents, they will be indexed and placed onto our online document management software, Halogen. This software was specially designed for HR Departments giving you security but easy access to your documents. Through Halogen, your documents can be accessed by anyone you have given permission to.

How can my office benefit from having documents scanned?

There is a seemingly endless list of advantages to scanning HR documents and implementing a digital document management system. You can save costs, space and time while also improving your green credentials with a paper light office.

A Solution to Rising Office Prices in London

Office SpaceAre you struggling with shrinking office space which you are paying through the nose for? Today we have a solution which could see you free up office space without the need to relocate to bigger and more expensive premises.

According to reports, the value of office space rented by one of Britain's largest landlords rose by 18.8% last year. This news from British Land further cements the uncomfortable struggle coming for London based businesses to operate while incurring crippling prices for their premises.

While there's still a debate about whether businesses would be better off moving outside of the capital to reduce the amount of money they spend on premises, there is a better and much simpler solution.

Going Digital with Document Scanningstuffed filing cabinet

So much office space in companies across London is being consumed by cumbersome filing cabinets, folders and boxes which have become such an office staple that you might not even have noticed them overrunning your office.

It might have started out as just a few boxes of paperwork here and there but between invoices, HR files, client information and incoming mail, you've found yourself with a serious document management issue. But aside from not being able to find the documents you need, when you need them, there is another more pressing issue; the space it's wasting.

How Much Space (and Costs) Are You Wasting?

Let's say a 4 drawer filing cabinet (used in many offices as an 'easy' storage method) uses around nine square feet of space. Now take a look around your office and the rest of the offices and storerooms at your company. How many filing cabinets do you have? 10s? 100s? 1000s? Multiply that number by nine and you can see an estimate of the amount of square footage you are using just for storage.

If you know how much money you are paying out per square foot of office space you can also calculate the cost of this storage too.

Shocking, isn't it?

But did you know all of that space can be saved simply by scanning documents and adopting a digital document management system. Transferring the documents filling those filing cabinets to a more manageable system hosted on a cloud platform, using document management software or simply stored on your IT network can transform your offices and leave you wondering why you didn't make the switch sooner.

Why is Digital Document Management the Superior Choice?

  • Managing documents digitally eliminates the need to store paper copies.
  • This freed up space can be used more productively and cost effectively.
  • Digital documents are more secure as they can be protected from the loss, theft and damage issues faced by paper documents.
  • Fully indexed digital documents can be accessed, edited and shared in seconds.Digital file management
  • You will see significant improvements in office productivity and efficiency.
  • You can lower your carbon footprint and boost your green credentials by printing less and sharing documents electronically rather than photocopying them.

By switching to managing your documents digitally, you could benefit from all of the above AND still remain compliant with file retention laws. It's a win-win situation!
