Document Collaboration: The Stats That Back It Up

How confident are you about the productivity or effectiveness of your current Document Management System? What if we tell you that over 21% of your productivity is going for a toss daily just because of document mishandling or lack of document workflow process?

These stats should make you take document collaboration seriously:

Money is lost every minute employees manually carry out processes involving document workflow

Searching for documents is a time-squandering exercise

An average employee spends 50% of his time searching for a file and about a total of 18 minutes every day to locate it. While 18 minutes may look less threatening a collective time for a company of 200 employees spending as much time equally would amount to a massive amount of unconstructive work every day. Do we gauge the threat now?

For example, in Nigeria – If the average turnover of a company of 200 employees is N3,000,000/day, each employee’s contribution to the loss of the gross turnover would be N56/day, which amounts to N11,250/day.  which further amounts to N292,500/month(considering 26 working days). The amount of money splurged would easily cover a fair share of factory expenses and the maintenance team would still be left with some money for the housekeeping staff salaries and office stationeries.

Take a look at some of the most important document management system statistics to have a wider perspective on the subject.
