Document Management Systems

Work that requires searching through filing cabinets full of paper documents, shelves with rolled up plan documents, or racks of blueprints, impacts the efficiency of any organization.  What’s more, today’s workforce is so used to finding information with a quick online search, that locating and retrieving hardcopy documents is quickly becoming a frustrating time waste for employees and managers alike.

Gain Wide Ranging, Long-Lasting Business Benefits

Online Document Management Systems, or DMS for short, make organizations much more efficient than those that rely on information stored in paper files. One of archSCAN’s core capabilities is moving an organization from a paper-based operation to a fast, efficient, on-line operation. archSCAN’s process for this is both seamless and efficient. Once your documents are scanned, archSCAN  indexes each one with metadata to allow them to be searchable online. Your digitized documents get stored in a secure, backed-up, easily accessible DMS so that staff can locate critical information on the fly.  With a DMS, employees find information from any device at any time and from any location.

Remove the Paper Bottleneck

archSCAN digitizes and indexes your organization’s paper documents of whatever types you have, and then provides the option to bring in the best Document Management Systems depending on your organization’s size and requirements for both now and in the future.   When organizations already have an electronic Document Management System in place, archSCAN converts the scanned documents to the required format – such as searchable PDF files – for your system, inserts the meta data for making the documents searchable, and directly imports into your DMS or creates a .CSV file for an easy upload.
