It is estimated that 57 per cent of office workers spend up to an hour per day looking for missing documents ¹. This overhead represents a big problem for businesses. In fact, survey findings contained within IDC’s white paper, Bridging the Information Worker Productivity Gap: New Challenges and Opportunities for IT, point out that the time information workers waste dealing with the myriad of challenges associated with working with documents (of which one is locating them) costs an organisation around $19,732 per information worker, per year and amounts to a loss of 21.3 per cent of an organisation’s annual productivity.
For many law firms, relying on a combination of disjointed electronic systems, paper-based archives and email platforms to create, store, modify and disseminate documentation, this loss of productivity of fee earning workers presents considerable risk to operational performance, as well as profitability.
