Albert Einstein is often quoted as saying, "If a cluttered desk is a sign of a cluttered mind, of what, then, is an empty desk a sign?"  - If he were around today, then we could say it’s because of Document Management.

Documentation Management is a critical mission of any operation, having your documentation, structured and organised can take care of your archiving, regulatory issues, internal communications, and therefore save you time and money

Three problems of document management

Lost documents

Anyone with a few documents will recognise that they often struggle to find that document, that you worked on last week, that you need in time for your meeting in 10 mins. Was it on a shared drive, on my PC or my laptop?


When you are running a business or team, and have all the company documentation provided by teams across the business. Its often confusing to know who owns the document, it could be HR, Payroll, Finance, and when did they last review the document?

Easily found

So you have a new person join the team and you want them to find your important documents, perhaps it’s the Travel policy, employee guide or how to book annual leave. Are your documents readily available for your team to find, have they read the Health and Safety handbook?
