What is the Difference Between Document Management and Document Storage?

People often wonder what, if any, the difference is between document management and document storage. While there are several differences, let’s simplify it into some easy points:

  • · Document storage is simply storing documents, you can do this on your computer, online or elsewhere.
  • · Document Management is typically a program that has several features that assist in inputting, storing, finding and sharing documents. This can be software you put on your computer or access online.
  • · Everyone, from individuals to businesses, needs a way to manage and to store their documents; document management provides both solutions whereas document storage does not.

Document management solutions usually offer features such as audit logs, versioning, OCR (Optical Character Recognition), multi-user permissions, and various ways to import paper and digital documents such scanning, importing, and folder monitoring to just name a few.
