Document Management Systems


Document Management Systems

Document management systems (DMS) have large quantities of documents and provide advanced search and workflow capabilities. DMS also provide security and ease of access to documents.

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 system to a fast, efficient, online 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.

Scalable Document Management Systems

From an access database to an enterprise solution, archSCAN provides scalable DMS options to meet your needs and budget. DMS can vary depending on your organization's size and requirements. Sometimes a simple, searchable database or excel spreadsheet is sufficient, while other times a robust system with more security and features is required. Document Management Systems can vary 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 prepares and scans documents to the required format – such as searchable PDF files – for your system, inserts the metadata for making the documents searchable, and directly imports into your DMS or creates a .CSV file for an easy upload.

Some of the numerous benefits that organizations have gained with a Document Management System include:

Time Savings

  • Immediate retrieval of any type of document using keyword searches or date range parameters
  • Retrieve documents with a web based user interface from desktops, laptops, and mobile devices
  • Access by Vendors when needed for maintenance or when handling urgent outages

  • Reduced time to fix major facilities outages, with quick access from any location to drawings, blueprints, or other required documentation

  • Backups of every electronic document in the system

Enhanced Security
