Moving from File Server to Document management System.

Hi Bit of a different question. We have had a EDMS for 3 years. No'one has come up with a plan on how to get staff to transfer files in to the new system. We still have terrabytes of files on our file server. Staff are continually finding reasons as to why they cant use the EDMS (objective) system. Of course it is easier to double click file - and open and close, while EDMS has extra steps etc. Also there has been no great decisions on folder structure inside the edms.

Now we have turned off write access to the file sever. Forced staff to have to use. We are still running into politics of why we have to do this. What Im after here is maybe some direction as to how to go about this. - I would have thought there is a staging process in the EDMS. What is the best way to tackle this - any ideas appreciated. No easy answer - So i guess im after someone who has experienced this problem. Thanks

It's difficult to implement change; especially with technology.   Within any organization users tend to fight change.  We always try to sell the product and share with the users the benefit of using EDMS; faster, easier to find documents, etc.
