Folder or directory structures have a significant impact on the operational efficiency and supportability of an office environment.
Inefficient directory hierarchys lead to several problems including:
- Trouble finding documents
- Duplication of data
- Backup inefficiency
- Multiple document versions causing update issues
- Ineffective data security
Openet can assist clients to structure or restructure their filesystem folder hierarchy to minimise the problems listed above, improve security and reduce support overheads.
One effective method of achieving long term success with efficient document storage is for Openet to run a workshop attended by an organisation's key administrative people where Openet can provide clear, non-technical information on best practice folder management. This empowers people within the organisation to make good document storage decisions, spread the message with the organisation and liaise more effectively with technical support personnel.
