There are potential pitfalls that can occur while implementing a document management solution. Knowing them in advance will help ensure a successful implementation.

A huge pothole often encountered on the road to document management bliss is being poorly prepared. Your business solution provider will work with you to develop a solid strategy to ensure you are properly prepared and eliminate potential surprises.

Another common pitfall is failing to include everyone who will be involved in the equation. Including all parties and opening lines of communication throughout the office will make the implementation a smooth one.

Finally, most humans are creatures of habit and don’t like change. Explain to them why it is needed, how it will benefit the company, and most importantly, how it will benefit them. Then, adequately train them so they are prepared to hit the ground running. This should dispel their instinct to resist change.
