It’s safe to assume that if you have a company, you have documents you need to keep in order. And the larger the company, the larger the amount of data – and the older the company, the more of that data is probably stored in old legacy systems.

You might have started out with something that worked for a small company; For example, a simple folder structure that you have now outgrown due to the sheer mass of documents, a restructuring of the company, expansion to new business areas, or simply a poorly planned structure in the first place. Or you might have one or several software solutions that are now outdated but that you keep paying for to avoid losing the content.

Keeping outdated and outgrown systems and solutions usually means wasting time and money. It takes longer to find the document you’re looking for and store new ones, and you might be paying for software you don’t need.

Another challenge that more companies have experienced since the pandemic changed how many of us work is the use of several different digital collaboration solutions. With documents being created, collaborated on, and stored in Google Drive, Teams, SharePoint, or some of the hundreds of other options, it can be time-consuming to figure out where to find the document you’re looking for.

With Documaster, you can consolidate all your existing documents in one user-friendly and optimized solution. Documaster can also be integrated with your collaboration and process tools, so all new documents are safely and correctly stored in the same system.
