Document Management for Remote Workforces

In 2023, over 32% of the Canadian workforce is remote. With this rise in the remote workforce, employers should also be shifting the way that their business operates to accommodate the team being dispersed across various locations. Digital document management is a crucial piece to making this remote work structure flow smoothly. Document Management platforms such as LedgerDocs, offer remote access features that allow businesses to streamline their document workflows, collaborate effectively within their team and with clients, regardless of their employees’ locations.

Anytime, Anywhere Access:

Creating digital copies of your documents, you enable remote teams to access the information they need to complete tasks from anywhere with an internet connection. Whether your team is working from home, traveling, or in a different time zone, they can securely log in to a platform such as LedgerDocsand access the documents they need. So gone are the days of being limited by physical access to paper files or local servers. Your productivity will be uninterrupted by inability to be near the office and you will be able to pick up where you left off on important tasks no matter where in the world you happen to be that day.

Seamless Collaboration:

Creating an efficient collaboration procedure for your team is key to creating a productive and remote-friendly work environment. One fundamental aspect that will allow you to take your work space virtual is setting up a cloud-based platform to save and collaborate on documents and granting the appropriate permissions to your employees and clients. This way, they are able to access any required documents, collaborate on them in real-time, make instant updates, exchange comments and notes, and share insights instantaneously. By eliminating manual file sharing and streamlining communication to be right at the document level, you will eliminate the need for multiple versions of documents, and reduce confusion and ensure that the entire team is aligned.

Secure Document Sharing:

One of the main reasons why many businesses may be apprehensive to create a digital database of their documents that can be related to security and privacy related concerns. Many businesses have sensitive financial documents that need to be kept secure and without general access. Selecting a document management platform that offers robust security measures, including data encryption and user-level permissions, will ensure that only those authorized can access, view and share these documents. Allowing even those who often work with confidential information to work remotely without any fear of data breaches or an unauthorized user accessing this information. Using a platform like LedgerDocs to work on these types of files is more secure then sharing versions of these documents back and forth via email. Version control features will also allow you to track any edits that are being made.

Version Control and Audit Trail:

Keeping track of document changes and maintaining an audit trail is necessary for anyone who is managing financial documents. It is required for compliance and accountability. Document management platforms designed for bookkeepers and accountants like LedgerDocs’ have remote access features include version control, allowing teams to easily track revisions, see who made specific changes, and restore previous versions if needed. Automating this process allows these professionals to work more efficiently and transparently and improve their accountability when working remotely. Making it easier for businesses to meet regulatory requirements and conduct internal audits without the need for extra work on the bookkeeper’s end to keep track of this information.

Mobile Accessibility:

Many remote and hybrid employees do not work on the traditional 9-5 schedule. Your workforce may be on different and more flexible work schedules or they may even be in different timezones. Their more flexible work day may require them to access documents on the go. Selecting software that has an intuitive mobile app or is mobile friendly will allow team members to conveniently access and manage documents from their smartphones or tablets. This mobile accessibility empowers remote teams to stay connected, respond promptly to document requests, and keep productivity levels high, no matter where they are or what time zone they are in.

In the era of remote work, efficient document management is necessary for productivity and collaboration. Whether it’s anytime, anywhere access, seamless collaboration, secure document sharing, version control, integration with accounting software, or mobile accessibility, LedgerDocs equips remote teams with the right tools to thrive in a digital work environment. .
