Do you have a lot of documents? Construction project contracts and drawings? Lawyers office case files and testimonies, Health records, Insurance claims, Utilities customer records…. How do you find all the right documents quickly? What about version control? and how do you know who accessed, modifed or printed what and when?

Most business processes depend on information – this often means multiple files and documents and various stages of approval or information gathering and dissemination. The  abiity to rapidly configure eforms and workflows and to store documents with context sensitive search features provides both rapid implementation and major cost reductions.  There are issues of compliance,  of data sensitivity, data loss, and timeliness of action, when orignal documents are routed physically.
