The Struggles of Digitizing Bookkeeping Documents and How Overcome Them

Digitizing bookkeeping documents has become necessary to keep up with modern business document filing standards, however the journey from paper to pixels can be a challenging one. Here are some common struggles faced during this transition and the LedgerDocs solution:

1. Volume and Variety of Documents

The Problem:

The sheer volume of invoices, receipts, financial statements and tax forms that need to be scanned, uploaded and filed can make this task overwhelming to start. The task of scanning, categorizing, and storing these documents in a digital format could take a significant amount of time and resources

The Solution:

LedgerDocs wants to help you make this transition as smoothly as possible. Our platform offers several ways to digitize and upload documents. These methods include, direct integrations with your Canon or Scansnap scanners, email uploads, or snap a picture of your document with our mobile app and upload it directly to your correct LedgerDocs folder.

2. Data Accuracy and Integrity

The Problem:

Digitizing documents is not the only hurdle to moving your bookkeeping documents onto the cloud. Another tedious and time consuming task that is involved in this process is data entry. When inputting financial information accuracy is very important but manual data entry is often prone to errors. Additionally, documents can be misfiled or lost in the digital shuffle, making retrieval difficult.

The Solution:

LedgerDocs uses advanced OCR technology to automatically and accurately extract data from your scanned documents. This significantly reduces manual data entry errors and ensures that the digitized information is reliable and consistent.

3. Security Concerns

The Problem:

Financial documents often contain sensitive information that needs to be secured from unauthorized access. Implementing security methods, such as encryption and secure access controls, is essential but can be complex and costly.

The Solution:

LedgerDocs is a secure place to store your financial documents. The platform has encryption, secure access controls, and regular data backups.

4. Compliance with Regulations

The Problem:

Businesses need to comply with several financial regulations and standards, many of which require meticulous record-keeping. Just scanning and saving files may not be enough to meet these regulatory requirements. Some regulations have specific storage and retrieval protocols.

The Solution:

Our platform is designed to help businesses meet regulatory requirements with features like audit trails, secure storage, and easy retrieval of documents. This keeps all of your records compliant with any industry standards and regulations.

5. Integration with Existing Systems

The Problem:

Creating a link between your document management platform and your accounting software and systems can be challenging. Compatibility issues may arise, requiring custom solutions or additional investments in software and training.

The Solution:

LedgerDocs integrates directly with popular accounting software such as QuickBooks and Freshbooks. This allows your documents digitized to flow directly into your existing accounting systems, streamlining the workflow and reducing the need for manual data entry.

The journey to digitize bookkeeping documents can be paved with challenges. Platforms like LedgerDocs make the transition smoother, simpler and more efficient. Schedule a 1:1 Demo and see our platform in action.
