Document Management Systems

What is a Document Management System (DMS)?

Document management, otherwise known as a Document Management System (DMS), refers to the use of software that uses one central point to store, manage, and track your company’s electronic documents, such as PDFs, word processing files and electronic images of scanned paper-based information.

By organising and streamlining information to one centralised point, document management software drastically improves your organisation’s efficiency, and provides many benefits including access control, audit trails, and added security of documents and information – all while substantially reducing the need for paper records, saving you money and reducing unnecessary waste of resources.

Your Printing Solutions offer a range of document management systems and software solutions, including software provided by Filestar and AutoStore, and we also offer advice on how you can utilise our Document Management Systems to take your productivity to the next level.

What Features Does a Document Management System Provide?

Version control or ‘versioning’
By archiving old versions of documents within the system after they have been edited, document management software allows users to view the full version history of the content and track any changes that have been made

Integrates with other systems
Document management systems integrate with email programmes such as Microsoft Outlook, and are also able to integrate with your organisation’s CRM and ERP software

Security, access control and document recovery
Document management software includes built-in security features and adjustable access controls so you determine who has access to what

Enables electronic collaborative work
Features such as live editing, file sharing, plugins and access restriction allow users to share and collaborate on documents with ease

Scan and store physical files electronically
You have the ability to scan physical files, convert them into electronic document formats such as .doc, .pdf or .jpg files and then securely store them

Eliminates need for paper documents
Storing your organisation’s information and files electronically eliminates the necessity of paper documents, drastically reducing your overall costs and waste

Assists in inventory management
Document management systems can help your organisation track and replace inventory, with cloud programs enabling different locations to share inventory details

If you expect that your organisation will grow and expand its operations down the line, you can choose a document management system with advanced features that will meet your increasing documentation requirements as they happen

How Would Your Organisation Benefit From a Document Management System?

As your organisation is at risk of data breaches and storage issues, document management software provides peace of mind by protecting your information and files, and negates the risk of losing physical files in the event of a fire or flood

Improves regulatory compliance
Document management systems can help you reduce the risk of receiving fines, having licenses revoked and facing criminal liabilities by automating key documents so that they meet any necessary legal requirements

Removes the need for your company to purchase paper for physical documents, which will save you money in addition to making your operations more environmentally friendly
