Is your company looking for document management software (DMS) or moving to a paperless office? Whether you realize it or not, there are many reasons to switch to an electronic document management system, including increased productivity and reduced costs. In this article, we’ll explore the different services BackOffice Associates and eFileCabinet have to offer, including their strengths and weaknesses.

What BackOffice Associates Has to Offer

BackOffice Associates is a leader in information governance and data modernization solutions. Founded in 1996, the company has helped numerous clients unlock the value of their data assets. BackOffice Associate offers 3 different types of services to its customers.


Identify and Remediate Data Quality Issues

BackOffice Associates locates and remediates costly data errors inside of your company. They can do this onsite or as a monthly service. The goal is to improve efficiency by eliminating manual processes and the dependency on spreadsheets for rules management.

Smoothly Migrate Your Data

Whether you’re migrating data from legacy programs or as the result of a company takeover, the data migration process can be lengthy and messy. BackOffice Associates specializes in mitigating the risk of migration failure. They ensure that your business-relevant data is visible early in the process. BackOffice Associates also reduces the need for post go-live data cleanup.


Manage All Aspects of Your Data Governance Program

BackOffice Associates helps your company monitor, measure, and manage the quality of data against your key business requirements. Data governance allows you to eliminate errors that cause business interruptions, but it also allows your business to achieve increased productivity.


What BackOffice Associates Can Do for Your Company

BackOffice Associates can take a large amount of data across different legacy programs and make it usable for your company. If your company has data that can’t be used for your business because of where it is and how it is saved, BackOffice Associates may be able to help you.


Where BackOffice Associates Falls Short

BackOffice Associates is not a document management system like eFileCabinet. If you are looking for something to keep your files accessible and organized, then BackOffice Associates isn’t the right service for you. On the other hand, when it comes to data migration, data quality issues, or data governance programs, BackOffice Associates might have what you’re looking for.


What eFileCabinet Has to Offer

Unlike BackOffice Associates, eFileCabinet is a full document management system. We offer a practical solution to storing and managing your documents in electronic formats. Instead of spreading your paperwork across various programs, you can centrally and securely store them with eFileCabinet.


Find What You’re Looking For

eFileCabinet makes it easy for you to find what you’re looking for. Not only can you find files you’re looking for, but you can even search within documents with a full-text search.


Keep Your Files Easily Accessible

Your files are also easily accessible wherever you are. You can search through documents from your laptop, tablet, or phone. This allows you to respond to client requests quickly, which can make all the difference for your company.


Keep Your Documents Secure

eFileCabinet helps you keep your documents secure by providing user-based access and data encryption. You can store files on your servers or on the cloud or both. We make sure that your backup has a backup.


Increase Efficiency with Document Workflows

eFileCabinet uses document workflows to increase productivity. Your employees follow the steps in the workflow to get work done. Documents get routed to the appropriate user to take action, and when one task is finished, your employees already have the next one lined up. Plus, supervisors and managers can easily see the type of work your employees are doing.


Increase Productivity with Software Integration

eFileCabinet integrates with different software programs to help you increase productivity. Examples include Salesforce and QuickBooks. We also offer eSignature integration so you can stay paperless in the future. If you have any questions about integrating your current software, give us a call so we can help.


Where eFileCabinet Falls Short

eFileCabinet provides a different service from BackOffice Associates. If you’re concerned with errors inside of your data or making data from legacy programs accessible to use, then eFileCabinet doesn’t have the right solution for your business. But when it comes to document management, we’ve got you covered!
