The excuse that more companies continue to cling to ignore the implementation of a document management system is invariably in the price.
It is based on the amounts they have to pay, that the majority of companies, especially small and medium enterprises (SMEs), apologize for not taking the necessary steps in terms of ease and effectiveness in managing documentation, to levels that can make all the difference to their business processes.
A novelty for those companies that prefer to say is scared by the costs of document management: A management system for documentation can be cheap, very cheap.
There are document management applications that comes at very competitive prices.
Especially systems that are based on open source software, developed for the Linux operating systems and programming tools and open-source databases, not lead to additional costs with software licenses, which translates into huge savings over proprietary systems.
Often gives up to the event, the company, the acquisition of the document management system, become the holder of alternative systems that cause may be exempted systems that must be purchased separately.
It is the case of software that acts as Electronic Mail Server, File Server, Fax Server and Printer.
That is to rethink whether it is preferable to use these strategies to manage shared email documentation and continue with much sand in the wheels, instead of adopting a true document management tool.
