The New Year’s Coming. Out With Paper, In With Digital Records

As we approach the New Year, it is natural to start thinking about resolutions and changes we want to make going forward that will improve our lives. It’s also the perfect time to take stock of current processes your staff uses and the ever-evolving expectations of your constituents. With much of state and local government still relying on paper records and processes, digitizing records may have a positive impact on how your government operates.

Much of state and local governments are still relying on paper processes which not only slows things down in an automated world, but it also creates a huge burden to organize, store and quickly access records when needed.

One of the many lessons we learned from the pandemic, is the need to access information remotely and in real-time

The benefits of digitizing are countless.

  • Enhanced access and searchability
  • Save staff time in searching for information
  • Reduce storage costs
  • Improve citizen interaction
  • Preserve records for transparency and for future generations
  • Protect records against fire, water damage, natural disasters, and theft
