In the 1980s when computers were first in the workplace, the dream was a paperless environment. However, the technology at the time contributed to more of that tree fiber multiplying on desks and in file cabinets. Eventually, some innovators came across the idea of developing management systems to help organize electronic files which helped quickly clear all that clutter.
DockMaster takes that prudent notion to heart with its financial management systems and has pledged to help make paperless an option that’s here to stay. The busier a marina gets, the greater the chance the printer is going to get a workout.
DockMaster has several amenities in to have its system to cut down on paper. It saves time in terms of printing, filing, compiling and in a worst-case scenario, frantically looking for a stray document.
In terms of time, DockMaster platforms enable the labor involved in filling out a work order exponentially faster than antiquated pen-and-paper processes. Storage, retrieval and distribution of the same order to the right parties is next to instantaneous, freeing personnel up to dedicate more time to other matters.
However, one of the biggest advantages of DockMaster is its incredibly timely, especially with security concerns become worrisome issues among companies. Physical copies are remarkably easy to smuggle out of a workplace, unlike digitized versions that can be protected via passwords and a robust firewall. It ensures that not only records of company activity can be protected from outside parties, but so can valuable consumer data in order to ensure client privacy is maintained.
A DockMaster system is also secure in that every document is stored in the system, ensuring that no information gets lost or misplaced. It’s far more efficient than in an old school scenario when a printed document is lost. In absence of a copy, and depending on how valuable the content might be, an operation could be stalled for as long as that physical piece of info remains missing.
DockMaster’s marine software systems can help make that paperless dream a reality, and in doing so improve a company’s financial picture via recovering time and space that could have been dedicated to more productive activities. Add to that the security component which brings peace of mind, and a marina can not only operate paperless, but stress-free as well.
