A 2018 AIIM study found that most businesses still rely heavily on paper-based office practices despite recent advances in technology and digital tools. From printing meeting notes to faxing invoices to other locations, it is easy to go overboard with paper documents. If your business is bogged down with paper filing, hard-copy contracts, and unsecure documents, the Xerox® DocuShare® content management platform could be your perfect solution.

Benefits of Going Paperless

There are many benefits of going paperless with a content management platform like Docushare®. Not only can immediate sharing of digital documents increase productivity, it can also cut back on cost and storage space. With fewer paper documents, you no longer need to spend time filing or expensing paper, envelopes, and other products. Storing documents digitally allows your team to access documents from any location without worrying about security since the documents can be encrypted and protected from copying and sharing.

Drag and drop documents into their designated sections for speedy organization, and quickly find the information you need with the user-friendly search function. You can even install multiple languages so your team can access the software in their preferred language.

Team Collaboration Functionality

Using a shared digital space allows coworkers to easily and efficiently collaborate on projects. Gone are the days of sharing printed documents or passing physical notes. With DocuShare® 7.0, your team can read, edit, annotate, and sign documents online.

Secure, Cloud-Based Portal

DocuShare® is easily accessed on both desktop and mobile devices via the cloud, providing access to business content 24/7. All information is stored in one secure, central location.
