Statistics: The Sad Truth
Studies show how much TIME, MONEY and PRODUCTIVITY you’re losing if you don’t manage documents properly.
1. According to the Delphi Group – 30% of all employees’ time is spent trying to find lost documents.
2. According to Gartner Research – Professionals spend 50% of their time searching for information, and take on an average, 18 minutes to locate each document.
3. According to IDC – Employees spend (on an average) 3 hours a week searching for, retrieving and recreating documents.
Staff are often stuck recreating documents that are already made, either because originals cannot be found or they do not know they exist.
Thats a month (156hrs) of potential work hours LOST, per employee, per year, WOW!
Now all this may sound outrageous, however most of us are unaware how much time is lost, have you ever timed how long it takes you to locate a document in an email, on a server, or even on your local computer. You’d be surprised how much time you waist every week!
