GET THE FACTS ON WHY
MORE BUSINESSES ARE MIGRATING TO
DOCUNET DOCUMENT MANAGEMENT
PAPER AND ELECTRONIC FILES LIMITING YOUR PRODUCTIVITY?
It's true. Increasingly more businesses are making
their move to DocuNet's Document Management System. For
increasingly more reasons. As our global marketplace
becomes smaller and more competitive, organizations are
seeking for ways to increase efficiencies and decrease
The information age has evolved to the point where it
has become commonplace for organizations to create and
receive most of their data in various format's. Further more, given the influx of cost-effective
easy-to-use DocuNet Information Management Solutions,
companies are taking closer looks at how they manage
traditional paper-based documents and electronic files.
Just look at the facts:
Companies spend about 10% of their revenue handling
to fill a four-drawer file cabinet and
a year to maintain it.**
The average office loses one out of 20 documents and
spends about €150 for each lost document recreated.+
FACT: The Document and Information market is
growing by 65% per year.++.
average gain in productivity after implementing a
document imaging system is 30%.+++
Consider, too, issues like security, accessibility
and peace of mind.
- For instance, when you leave the office each
day, just how safe are your paper-based documents?
- Or, what would you do if a key member of your
organization suddenly left without advising anyone
where important active files were stored?
With DocuNet, your worries are a thing of the past.
Specifically designed for multiple users in
organizations, DocuNet EDM enables users to quickly and
efficiently manage a wide range of documents, including
scanned images, electronically created files, reports,
audio and video.
Many different technologies are involved in
electronically managing documents: scanners; printers;
servers and workstations; storage devices; and more. Yet
while the majority of organizations use these
technologies individually, most of them are not
integrating them to effectively access mission-critical
information and maximize their efficiencies.
Enjoy instant accessibility to all documents on your
With DocuNet, you can quickly scan, publish, locate,
retrieve, view, print and distribute documents - in any
format - in or out of the office. Your files can be
safely duplicated and managed offsite on the Web for
disaster recovery. Best of all, DocuNet offers real
cost-saving advantages over a paper-based system.
What's involved with
implementing DocuNet's Imaging System?
time you knew.
To successfully migrate to DocuNet's Imaging System, a document must go
through the four fundamental stages, commonly known in
the industry as Capturing; Indexing; Storing; and
Retrieving. Here's how they work:
Capturing a document is the first step of the DocuNet
solution. Paper-based (i.e. invoices, purchase orders)
are captured via the DocuNet Capture application,
using our high speed document capture system. Then
they're converted into a digital format (much like a fax
machine does) and entered into the electronic document
Documents that are already in an electronic format, such
as CAD drawings and word processing or spreadsheet
files, can be exported directly to DocuNet system with
ease using DocuNet Export.
Once a document has been captured and entered into
your electronic document management system, it is
critical to organize it for efficient archival and
retrieval purposes. Using special indexing (cataloguing)
software, documents are classified and filed according
to keywords - document type, author, part number, date,
designer, P.O. number, etc.
in mind that the number of keywords you use is totally
contingent upon your organization's specific
requirements. When assigning documents keywords,
consider how many documents you handle on the average
day, as well as the nature of each document.
Methods of Indexing
There are various ways to index your new document
management system. Select the option that best meets
your requirements and work environment. They include:
- manually entering keywords;
- choosing keywords from a select list;
- utilizing a fully automated bar code
identification system. This method is very easy to
implement because all documents (regardless of
format) can be indexed instantly and automatically,
simply by printing /affixing bar code labels.
Once your documents have been indexed, they are ready
to be stored in a secure digital file cabinet - in
exactly the same format in which there were created.
Keywords are automatically added to the index for quick
access by multiple users in future.
Older or inactive documents should typically be moved
(or "migrated") to another storage media format, such
the CD-ROM or DVD. While it is slower to access these
files, the CD-ROM is more cost-efficient and therefore a
more practical storage vehicle for these types of
This last stage is, without question, the most
importance to everyone working within your organization.
After all, employees rely on DocuNet to retrieve a
document safely, quickly and easily. And organizations
rely on DocuNet to help achieve new levels of
Accessing documents is quick and painless - providing
that they have been properly captured, indexed and
stored. Authorized users can conveniently retrieve
documents by inputting keywords, such as the storage
date and name of the person who stored the document.
What's more, documents can be retrieved instantly and
simultaneously by many users within the organization -
no matter whether they're based in the same city or
halfway around the world. Additionally DocuNet Document
management works with desktop search utilities such as
Microsoft Desktop Search, Vista, Microsoft SharePoint,
Google Desktop Search.
DocuNet can do for you!
As Docit continues to evolve at a rapid rate and
enhanced workflow (processing and routing of work)
becomes more important to organizations, new
emerging document workflow solutions are being
introduced to help the business world reach an all-time
high in productivity. While standard document imaging
solutions tend to only manage static image documents,
these workflow solutions are also equipped to manipulate
electronic documents and their component formats.
In essence, DocuNet's workflow solutions can:
- help reduce the amount of time a document spends
travelling amongst users;
- highlight specific areas of a document;
