Need a document management system?

Need a document management system?

What is a Document management system?

Document management systems is the use of a computer system and software to store, manage and track electronic documents and electronic images of paper based information captured through the use of a document scanner. It is how your organisation stores, manages and tracks its electronic documents. Document management is the software that controls and organises documents throughout an organisation. It incorporates document and content capture, workflow, document repositories, COLD/ERM, and output systems, and information retrieval systems.  Also the processes used to track, store and control documents.

Document management is one of the precursor technologies to content management. It provides some of the most basic functionality to content management, imposing controls and management capabilities. Some key features in document management:

  • Check-in/Check-out and locking, to coordinate the simultaneous editing of a document so one person’s changes don’t overwrite another’s
  • Version control, so tabs can be kept on how the current document came to be, and how it differ from the versions that came before
  • Roll-back, to ‘activate’ a prior version in case of an error or premature release
  • Audit trail, to permit the reconstruction of who did what to a document during the course of its life in the system
  • Annotation and stamps

Document management systems to systems today range in size and scope from small, standalone systems to large scale enterprise-wide configurations serving a global audience. Many document management systems provide a means to incorporate standard physical document filing practices electronically. These include:

  • Storage location
  • Security and access control
  • Version control
  • Audit trails
  • Check-in/check-out and document lockdown

Why become paperless today!

Why become paperless today!

Safe and secure:

Storing in the Cloud has benefits. There is no longer any need to create backups, the old days of creating backups are long gone. With the Cloud every change is saved instantly without the user having to do anything. Each change saved can be a different version. There is no need for edits and all of your data is safe in the Cloud. Life in a paper-filed world was different as a single fire could wipe out all the documents the business had, including copies. Now, with the Cloud, should your building burn down, none of your data would be lost. Whilst moving to the Cloud is much more convenient, the danger is data security. With the General Data Protection Regulation. Any company that fails to secure its data and maintain compliance with the law can be fined up to £20 million or 4% of turnover whichever is greater.

Reduce wasted hours:

57% of office workers spend an hour a day looking for missing documents. With 20% having to recreate documents they couldn’t find. Going paperless means tasks which traditionally took days now only take minutes. Tasks could be largely automated using Cloud technology saving time for both the accountant and its client. Shows how marginal gain can have a vast impact on productivity, time savings add up. Meaning accountants can focus on added true value. By going paperless companies are given more time to add value to the business.

Limitless storage:

Document Management Systems free you from having standard filing, making no copies. Document Management systems make storage and retrieval simple which means there is only a need for one master document. Changes to that document will be reflected everywhere without redoing any copies. With paper storage, it is easy for documents to go missing or for someone to file it in the wrong place. Now with document management systems, users can only digitally check out a document, but the original copy remains in document management systems where documents cannot be lost. Remote working can also be improved by going paperless. Sales people can go out on the road, as they can digitise documents in real time. This ensures there is no chance that documents can go missing before the sales person returns to base.

Careful access:

Financial threat should be enough to convince companies that they need to lock down all data. Moving to be a paperless world helps to do that. With paper documents filed away in a room it can be hard to restrict access on a per-document basis. Once an employee gets into your filing system, they can look at practically any document they want, which is a huge threat to privacy. With a document management system and Cloud storage your business has per-document controls that should be implemented. Every business should review who has access to what and ensure they’re not oversharing. Employees should only be able to access the data they require to do their job. Different levels of access. You may want to prevent users from being able to delete documents, instead they may be able to remove them from their view. System administrator can restore or look at some employees may only need read-only access to information, but shouldn’t be allowed to copy or print the data.

Add value:

Digital office ultimately transforms the workplace productivity, enabling employees to spend their time wisely, adding value. Focusing on digital alternatives. Professionals can eliminate wasted hours whilst keeping up to date.

Why should companies use the Cloud?

Why should companies use the Cloud?


Cloud-based services are ideal for businesses with growing or fluctuating demands. If your needs increase it is easy to scale up your Cloud capacity. Likewise, if you need to scale down again, flexibility is crucial in the service. Organisations are enabling employees to access corporate data from a multitude of locations and variety of devices. This flexibility can be made easier by using the Cloud.

Automatic software updates;

The Cloud servers are off-premise, out of sight. Suppliers will take care of them on your behalf and complete regular software updates. Including security updates. Therefore users do not have to worry about wasting valuable time maintaining the system. Leaving you free time to focus on the things that matter, like running and growing your business.


Using the Cloud cuts out the high costs of hardware. You simply need to pay as you go, a subscription-based model.

Increased collaboration;

Employees can access, edit and share documents anytime, from anywhere, they’re able to do more together. The Cloud based workflow and file sharing helps to make amendments and updates in real time, giving them full visibility of their collaborations. It enables employees situated in various locations to collaborate easily. By providing simultaneous syncing, working and sharing documents and records in real time. Helping increase the collaboration and efficiency of employees.

Work from anywhere;

With the Cloud, if you have an internet connection you can be at work. With most Cloud services offering mobile apps, you’re not restricted by which device you’ve got to hand. As a result businesses can offer more flexibility, also enabling employees to work from home.

Document control;

The more employees collaborate on documents, the greater the need for secure document control. Before the Cloud, workers had to send files back and forth as email attachments can only be worked on by one user at a time. This usually leads to a mess of conflicting file content, formats and titles. With the Cloud, all files are stored centrally and everyone sees one version of the truth. Which means improved collaboration.


Lost laptops are expensive, but it’s more problematic with the loss of sensitive data inside. The Cloud gives you greater security when this happens. As data is stored in the Cloud, you can access it no matter what happens to your machine. It is also possible to remotely wipe data from lost laptops, so data does not get into the wrong hands. The Cloud is equipped with specialised staff and place greater emphasis on security.

Environmentally friendly;

With the Cloud the Environment gets love too. The server capacity scales up and down, so you only use the energy you need and you don’t leave oversized carbon footprints. Using the Cloud reduces data centres carbon footprint.
