Document Management, often referred to as Document Management Systems (DMS), is the use of a computer system and software to store, manage and track electronic documents and electronic images of paper based information captured through the use of a document scanner. Document management is how your organization stores, manages and tracks its electronic documents.
A Document Controller’s role is one that is vital to the successful execution of all of the processes within an organisation. A Documented Information controller is considered as the gate-keeper of an effective Document Control System. He makes sure that all the necessary documents are traceable, and accessible to relevant parties within and outside the organisation. In particular, document control is necessary, not only for efficiency and productivity, but also for the safety and privacy of the document’s information.
