When you think of a leader, you picture someone in front of a group telling a story or casting a vision of the future. As leaders, we are used to leading people. It sounds pretty simple. What’s not simple is when the people are not physically there to lead.
What do you think of when you think of your local city or town hall? Most people don't tend to think of a fast-paced, highly digitized environment. Especially not a place where they could skip the lines and take care of a task online. From car registrations to land record management, local government is responsible for providing documentation to its residents. However, keeping these documents as part of a manual, paper-based process increases the risk of loss, poor accuracy and storage and safety issues. Digitizing your municipal records, such as land records, assessing files, financial records and meeting minutes, can help you quickly become organized, efficient and in control of the tasks that occur daily at your city or town hall.

In the weeks ahead, we will be highlighting some of Recordsforce's employees, as they are essential to helping businesses stay open and operating during a pandemic as we shift to working and learning remotely. From paper operation technicians to our IT team, everyone provides the expertise needed to reduce the burden of the COVID-19 pandemic on businesses that are trying to manage their workload online.
With the onset of increased amounts of invoices due to your business growth, it is more challenging than ever for accounts payable departments to get their invoices reviewed, approved and paid on time. Not only is this a large concern for growing businesses, but so is the need to budget for more accounts payable employees to get through the workload if your process is not automated.
I’m Katja Becker, owner and co-founder of Recordsforce. I’ve been in the document management business with my husband, Bill, since his first start-up called FisheNet which was founded in 1996. I’m currently the Controller at Recordsforce, but have also held positions ranging from Operations Manager, Document Scan Operator, Document Preparation Specialist and pretty much anything else that needed to get done in the early days!
Like many companies across the globe, Recordsforce is being asked to keep as many of its workers out of the office as possible due to the COVID-19 outbreak. We are currently sending 3 out of every 4 employees home to work, where they are able to perform their jobs remotely.
Now that you are working from home, surrounded by giant stacks of Charmin, you may be noticing that some of your work is pretty much the same, but other work is nearly impossible to do. Your digital documents and cloud-based work is uninterrupted by a work from home requirement. That makes sense. The cloud can be accessed anywhere you have the internet and cloud-based tools are built for portability.
