Importance of EDMS for work of the enterprise

  • Economy of working time of employees


  • Since 1999 used the solution on the Lotus Domino/Notes IBM platform.
  • A system became morally outdated, had no mobile and a version web.
  • In 2014 upgraded to the new version.
  • Received a functional, but slowly working, difficult system in use. Mobile application worked unstably. As a result heads and managers did not work in a system.
  • Considered different solutions (Directum, Documentum, Docsvision, 1C, …), but did not see solutions which in a complex would meet requirements: Simplicity and convenience, speed, mobility
