Collaborative Document Workflow: How To Achieve Compliance and ISO Standards

When it comes to compliance for your organization, it’s important to have the right file and document structure. In this article, we’ll be covering how you can get these with Google Workspace and Workflow applications.

The Importance of Document Management

Document management is important for any business. But when dealing with the accumulation of a lot of documents within a business, managing documents becomes a major problem. Most businesses have several files with different keywords and sub-keywords in different sections, which makes it difficult to sort and navigate within the files. Furthermore, these documents should be digitally filed in the correct organization and in the right format, which is to ensure that no duplicates are made. This is something that is often not done. It can lead to a lot of damage to the organization. These are just a few examples of the potential damage that can be done to the organization, if it is not properly organized.

For a number of years, end users have been increasingly adopting collaborative applications like Microsoft Office 365 and Google Workspace. One of the main factors driving this trend is that technology is shifting more and more to cloud-based tools where productivity of end users can be drastically increased and how much storage space can be saved. The adoption of these systems comes with its own challenges as you have to manage an ever growing number of documents that need to be managed. As a result, there are times where end users may not be able to manage a specific document or may need more than what they are able to store.
