What Can the 21st Century Office Do for You?
As technology advances at a rapid rate, your business needs to be able to move more data than paper. 21st Century Office can help you accomplish this. Our Sales Manager, Stan Newton, covers this in our latest video.Who remembers Y2K? You know, the predicted ruination of the power grid? A lot of people were concerned about this, but when the clock passed midnight on Dec. 31st, 1999, nothing much happened. A new millennium began, and technology advanced into the 21st century quietly.Since that memorable non-event, technology has exploded. There has been more growth in computer capabilities in the last 10 years than the last 50 years of the 20th century. Your car has more computing capacity than the lunar module that landed on the moon in 1969. You can make bank deposits on your phone without ever having to actually step foot inside the bank. Can you keep up with this technological advance in your business office, or are you still stuck in the 20th century?The 21st century game is limited to two elements: paper and data. If you move more paper than data, you lose. This means you need to focus on data. Accounting and bookkeeping are the historical data of what happens in your business numerically. The challenge has always been to record this historically in as close to real time as you can economically. The information is most useful when recorded as a current event. Some people settle for information that is months or even years behind. To deal with the challenges of the 21st century, you must be on top of your business at all times.“If you move more paper than data, you lose.” What if you could remove 80% to 90% of the paper that you move around in your office? What if you could outsource your bookkeeping that would eliminate the necessity of having an in-house bookkeeper in your office? This is what the 21st century office looks like. What if you could scan your documents to a portal in the cloud and be able to retrieve them electronically without keeping any copies?
