Document Management For Government

Towns, cities and municipalities are complex organizations, composed of multiple departments providing widely diverse services. From police reports to sewage system maps or building permits to by-laws, the work involved in running a municipality generates a huge volume of documents.

Routing, filing, managing and storing both paper and electronic documents costs cities millions of dollars annually; often, these costs seem hidden in the larger budget in the form of floor space taken up by multiple file rooms or labor inefficiencies searching for electronic documents in the network folders or email. By drastically reducing the volume of paper consumed, printing and copying, transportation, storage facilities, and the labor needed to manage these documents, municipalities can expect a drastic improvement to the operating budget. It can also provide a noticeable improvement in client services and provide real “green” program benefits.
