Digital Document Management for Engineering and Manufacturing


Digital Document Management, Storage and Retrieval

 for Engineering and Manufacturing

The challenge


Sometimes when it comes to separating the office from the workshop, the distinction is blurred. Paper invoices and delivery notes can be handed to you on the job, buried in pockets, misplaced or they simply just never make it back to the office. 


Engineering and manufacturing storage processes are complex and often involve large volumes of documents passing through the business, in various file formats, that need to be shared across Departments, between suppliers, contractors and manufacturers. 


The opportunity


Get a tailored-made electronic document manager that automates all your physical documents; start by scanning physical copies, giving you a digital copy that is securely saved, indexed and organised in a central database for lighting quick retrieval. Easily capture, store, manage, process, share and track documents. You control who has access to certain document types, tasks lists.
