As a governing body, you seek to protect your community, meet economic needs, provide service, and ensure a high quality of life to all citizens. But to do so requires paperwork! LOTS of paperwork! Resources are spent responding to public information requests, retrieving documents from records rooms from off-site storage, preserving public records, complying with record storing regulations, and maintaining archives of maps and drawings. The solution for all of this is simple! Use eFileCabinet, the trusted document management solution for hundreds of cities nationwide. We can help you better serve your citizens and improve your city’s efficiency!
How much paper do you use?
Did you know that the average office worker uses 10,000 sheets of copy paper each year? Government employees are no exception. Whether you’re in a small city government or work at the county level, the waste of paper is something you can’t overlook.
Even small cities with half a dozen employees are burdened with managing and filing paperwork.
Is paperwork really that big of a deal? Think of your demanding workload! Your day is filled responding to requests for instant access to public records, keeping records protected, maintaining archives of maps and drawings, serving your community and more. As you face these demands throughout your local government — do you really have the time to file, sort, and sift through thousands of documents? NO.
Before I started using eFileCabinet, I had three physical file cabinets and the paperwork was continuing to build. In any given week, I would spend at least an hour a day searching for old files and filing new information. Since implementing eFileCabinet in January of 2014, I now spend under 20 minutes a week finding and filing the appropriate items electronically. Better yet is the mobile application that allows me to talk with a client on the road, find the information they need on my iPhone through the eFileCabinet App, and get them an answer in minutes instead of usually the next day.
