Document management

Document management systems are used to digitally archive and manage electronic documents.

What is meant by document management system?

The term document management refers to the database-supported central administration of electronic documents. A database-driven document management system is essential today, especially if you process many documents from customers, employees and other sources.

With the right solution, especially for large files, audit-proof archives, easy conversion and management of any documents are guaranteed, and business process automation is also supported. In contrast to conventional file systems, where the input options for metadata are limited, document management solutions provide users with additional options such as precise definition of files by storing keywords, visualized folder structure, versioned document type, automated workflows, etc.

Digital document management in the form of a document management system simplifies the effort involved in searching for documents, thereby optimizing productivity and ultimately saving time and money.
