Integrated DMS

06/28/2021.

Document Management System is also known as Document Management which is all about storing, managing, and tracking the electronic documents and images of paper-based documents. These images or documents are taken through a document scanner and then stored in the computer. According to ISO 12651, it is said that the document is like information that can be treated as a unit.

 

To make it all simple for you, document management is the software that controls and manages all the documents of an organization. The software does not only contain documents, it also has content capture, repositories of documents, COLD/ERM and an information retrieval system.
