Why it's worth having a DMS integration partner

You’ve decided that your business or enterprise is ready to have a document management system (DMS) solution. It’s a significant investment and, if implemented correctly, could transform the way your business operates.

Enhancing the way your core business processes are done has the potential to improve a great many aspects of your company, including employee productivity, collaboration and customer relationships.

Your business could opt to simply purchase the software solution and go from there. However, as with any significant changes to the way your business works, you know that there will be some teething issues and time required to adapt.

In this guide, we’re outlining the benefits of having a document management integration partner.

Long-term advisor

An integration partner is not just a company that helps you find the solution and install it. On top of this, they can act as a long-term consultant. They will have guided many businesses to ensure they have everything set up for optimum results. The service will include handover training and guidance on how to implement more complex changes, such as strategising and building road maps.

A DMS can help to reduce bottlenecks within your organisation. However, if you are going through a period of change, you may want assistance with planning this.

Advanced notice of new features

Furthermore, stakeholders can be kept informed of software updates. Integration consultants will often have advanced notice of new features, and this knowledge and industry expertise can be passed onto your business. This means you can reap the benefits sooner and gain an advantage over competitors who may have simply bought the solution directly from the software provider.

This also means you won’t have to spend hours or weeks researching the latest changes and updates, weighing up which features are beneficial for your business. Instead, your integration partner, who should be well versed in your business and its goals, will be able to advise. They won’t try to upsell for the sake of it. Instead, they will impart their expertise to help you make an informed decision.

Get ongoing expertise

They will be leaders in content management and will save you time during the entire lifecycle of your digital transformation. They’ll be familiar with the common pitfalls and mistakes that businesses face when going through such a change.

Save time and money

One of the biggest advantages is being able to save time and money. You can put back the time to implementation by months. This is particularly worth considering if you’re in the process of a complete digital transformation.
