The Secrets to Streamlined Document Management revealed – How iProtectU EHS Software can help 

Document management is an important component of any business, but it can also be a time-consuming and challenging task.

With so many different documents to keep track of, it can be difficult to ensure that they all stay organised, accessible, and secure. 

The good news is that there are several secrets to streamlining document management. By following these tips, you can make it easier to manage your documents and save time and resources. 

Use a document management system (DMS) 

A DMS is a software solution that can help you to organise, store, and manage your documents. DMSs can provide many useful features, such as: 

  • Centralised storage of all documents in one place 
  • Document versioning and control 
  • Document search and retrieval 
  • Document security and permissions 


Digitise your documents 

If you still have paper documents, digitising them is a great way to streamline your document management process. Digitised documents can be stored electronically, making them easier to find and share. Additionally, digitised documents can be backed up more easily and are less likely to be lost or damaged. 

Establish clear document naming and filing conventions 

Having clear document naming and filing conventions can help you to keep your documents organised and easy to retrieve. When you are naming and filing documents, ensure you include relevant information such as the document type, date, and project name. 

Regularly review and delete old documents 

It is important to regularly review and delete old documents which are no longer required. This will help to free up storage space and make it easier to find the documents that you need. 

Use a DMS with integrated workflows 

If you have recurring document-based workflows, such as approval processes or onboarding new employees, using a DMS with integrated workflows can help you to automate these processes. This can save you time and resources and help to ensure that your workflows are efficient and effective.
