Nonprofits all have a mission--and if you feel like files, paperwork, and document storage are getting in the way of yours, then you've come to the right place. Document management is a powerful solution that allows nonprofits to advance their mission without breaking the bank. Here's how it works!
What is Document Management?
Document management is like having a friend who's really good with paperwork. This friend helps you manage all the files in your nonprofit, giving you the organizational tools and techniques you need to keep things running smoothly.
For example, say you're working on a project that directly supports your mission. This is what it's all about--but because the project comes with so many forms to fill out and documents to sign, you're spending more time searching and organizing than you are on helping people. With document management, you can scan every new file into your digital system, where it can be automatically sorted into files by keyword, title, date, or even content. Later, when you need to find those files again, you can search for and locate what you need with just a few clicks of your mouse--or even a few taps of your mobile device.
That's the power of document management, and it can do a lot of good--just like your nonprofit does.
Benefits for Nonprofits
Nonprofits can find a wealth of unique benefits from document management. Let's take a closer look:
When files can be found in seconds, you won't have to worry about printing and re-printing every time someone loses a page. That means you'll save money on ink, paper, and energy--and that's money you can put right toward your mission.
Document management helps bring order to paper chaos. You won't spend hours manually searching for a single file, you'll be able to save and share documents in seconds, and you'll be able to put more of your energy toward tasks that matter.
Nonprofits exist to make the world better and to improve life for everyday people. When your documents are well-organized, secure, and easy to manage, you can serve these people more quickly and with higher degrees of accuracy. Sure, that alone may not change the world--but it can make a little difference with a big impact.
In conclusion, document management is like having a friend in your nonprofit--one who's really, really good at digitizing, organizing, and securing your files. Your mission, your community, and your teams will thank you!
