Dizzy Dean and Data Archiving
What can Dizzy Dean, the legendary 1930's St. Louis Cardinals baseball pitcher, teach us about document management in the 21st century?
"The doctors x-rayed my head and found nothing," Dizzy once said. Does your organization rely on spotty individual memories (such as that of Dizzy) and scattered PC data files rather than having an easily accessible database of information available to all employees? Wouldn't the members of your team be more productive if they could all rely on a centralized database rather than on memory and hard to locate documents jammed into filing cabinets?
"I never keep a scorecard or the batting averages," Dizzy once said. "What I got to know, I keep in my head." This may have worked well for an extremely talented Hall of Fame pitcher living in a simpler world, but wouldn't your team members be happier and more productive with an archiving and document management system where most of the information they need is readily available from a PC, web browser or smart phone?
And shouldn't everyone on your team have access to the information required to provide outstanding service for customers, prospects and vendors. Even Dizzy, a member of the famous 1934 Cardinal "Gashouse Gang" team, encountered a few questions he couldn't answer. "It puzzles me how they know what corners are good for filling stations," Dizzy once said. "Just how did they know gas and oil was under there?"
With a powerful document archiving and management system your team members may be able to avoid some the puzzlement Dizzy experienced in his life.
