With the new Federal Labor Association overtime rule, it’s more important than ever for small to medium businesses to maximize employee productivity within an 8-hour workday. If you’re seeking a solution for dealing with this new ruling, try digitizing your paper-based processes with scanning and Managed Document Services.

Digitize Your Processes With Scanning

Electronic processes are inherently faster and more accurate than paper-based procedures. Replace printing with scanning and see what happens:

  • Digitize and automate your HR procedures, making it easier to process new employees.
  • Shuffling paper documents is inefficient and it presents security risks you don’t need. Scanning those documents and routing directly to paperless processes can save hours or even days of valuable staff time.
  • Scanning invoices takes less time than hand-delivering them from one desk or department to another, and you’ll speed up the entire payment process into the bargain.

Maximize Productivity

It makes perfect sense. Businesses who implement productivity-enhancing strategies experience less need for employee overtime hours. Digital processes—even for just 50% of your current workflows—can deliver increases in employee productivity by as much as 35%. It’s easy to see how a change to paperless electronic processes could make overtime hours unecessary.

No Heavy Lifting Involved

Scanning your documents into an electronic Document Management system doesn’t require a large capital investment, but it does deliver large benefits. Once scanning and Document Management is in place within your business, you’ll see savings across your organization.

  • Lowered expenses through improved time management and streamlined workflows.
  • Less need for staff overtime hours.
  • Improved document security in every department.
  • Improved regulatory compliance, including Sarbanes Oxley, Dodd Frank, and the new FLA overtime threshold.

No matter what business you’re in, you can improve your processes through scanning to a Document Management system. To learn more about the many advantages, get in touch with our expert staff at Capital Business Systems today!
