eFileCabinet: Made by a CPA

Tired of watching his expensive, paid-by-the-hour accountants spend their day going back and forth between filing cabinets, James Blaylock developed an efficient system specific to the accounting profession’s needs. His friends in the industry caught wind and just had to have the same system. So 2001, Blaylock founded eFileCabinet to make his software available to not just accountants, but everyone. If you want to simplify meeting Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP), eFileCabinet accounting document management software provides an easy way to make it happen.

Rubex to the Rescue

Your work starts and ends with documentation. It all begins with source data and ends with finished documents provided by you. This document exchange is a crucial aspect of your job.

Today’s technology can simplify all cycles of document management. Here are just a few of the eFileCabinet DMS superpowers that can help make your job significantly easier:

Workflow

Chances are you work with lots of repeated documents in repeated patterns. Automated workflow will save you lots of hands-on time, as documents are automatically routed from creation/collaboration, revising, and versioning, to evaluation and approval.

In a business sense, “workflow” can refer to any controlled and repeatable pattern of processes that a project passes through to reach completion. In document management, “workflow” refers to the process of moving documents through an organization.

With eFileCabinet, you can design workflows that are as simple or complex as your department requires. You can also establish multiple workflows, making it easy to map out automated file routing for the different types of documents you produce or receive on a regular basis.

Zonal OCR

If you work with lots of forms—and what accounting professional doesn’t?—Zonal OCR is like hiring a super-speedy, extra-efficient virtual assistant that specializes in data entry. Using basic optical character recognition (OCR), Zonal OCR recognizes and auto-populates data for you. It even automatically files the document in eFileCabinet. Setting up Zonal OCR is easy—it takes less time than training a new employee on data entry.

Work From Anywhere

Rubex is a SaaS system that operates from the cloud. This means you can use Rubex from nearly any device with an internet connection. Access Rubex from a web browser, desktop application (PC/Mac), or mobile application (iOS/Android). Security protocols allow you to work through the web with peace of mind. Encryption means you can connect without compromise and get your work done from the office, from home, or on the road.

Customer Testimonials

In the business world today, there are mountains and mountains of paperwork. Being able to limit and severely reduce our paper file storage has amounted to savings of thousands of hours and dollars. The ability for our PM’s to be able to search for a document their smartphone or tablet while on the job and find the document/invoice/proposal/bid/change order, etc. is invaluable and hard to put a dollar amount on! There are many DMS software programs out there, but eFileCabinet is perfect for our enterprise!

The benefits of eFileCabinet include: 1) reduction of storage, 2) MUCH easier to find needed information, 3) MUCH better organization of records. We save money on paper and boxes, and we no longer have rented storage. Customers are VERY happy that we can mail encrypted documents at a moment’s notice. I’m sure that each of us in our office saves at least 1 hour per week and more than that during our busy season.
