What Exactly is an Online Filing System?
Filing your documents online is one of the best ways for you to store all your most important information in a totally secure and paperless environment. The basic layout of online filing systems are the same as physical filing cabinets, but instead of opening a drawer containing paper documents, *click*, and you have access to all your files right on your computer screen, accessible from anywhere with an internet connection.
Storing Files Online Has the Advantages of:
- Saving Space — Office space can be very expensive, and filing it with paper and folders is not the most profitable use for it. Storing files digitally can allow you to access an entire room’s worth of records with just a computer, taking up minimal space.
- Saving Time — No more getting up, going to the file cabinet, looking through the drawers, or hunting around for misplaced documents.
- Saving Money — By increasing efficiency in paper management,work time and office space are saved, decreasing expenses and increasing profits.
With online document filing you can create as many cabinets, drawers, folders, and sub-folders as you need without taking up a single square foot of expensive office space. Whether you’re using our desktop product, backed up with CloudView, or our online version, the interfaces look much the same and navigation is simple. Files are easily accessible within their folders, and consistency is enhanced by having everything saved in one online, central, paperless location.
