Breaking Up With Your Filing Cabinet

First things first, it's time to end your relationship with your current analog filing system. We recommend the "ripping off the band-aid approach". However, if you need a slow separation from one-another, that's fine too. It's still progress.

Yes, it's going to be tough.

Yes, there will be moments of weakness where your new digital filing system will just not understand you like your old paper one did. But just remember, this is what's best for both of you. Plus, you'll be able to sleep better at night knowing that if your office manages to burn down, you'll still have access to all of your most important documents.

Throughout this guide we'll be discussing some of the best tools available to you. Everything you can do with a filing cabinet, you can now do online with fantastic cloud applications.

We're partial to Savvydox, obviously, because it can:

  • Save you time: finding your documents, and reorganizing them on the fly is quicker than having to actually re-arrange mountains of paper.
  • Save you office space by getting rid of filing cabinets.
  • Most importantly, it can save you a ton of money by eliminating duplication and confusion surrounding document versioning.

That said, there are several other applications that will also make your life easier. Check them out below.
