Document Management for an Office Furniture Manufacturer
For Sedus Stoll, a manufacturer of office furniture, accessing information from microfilm is a thing of the past and employee desks and shelves once piled with paper have become less cluttered. Not long ago, private copies of information stored in baskets and folders were a popular way to simplify the search for information. Now, using the DocuWare document management system, information is stored in a centralized electronic file cabinet accessible with only a few clicks of the mouse. On average, 25,000 records from suppliers and resellers are filed every month.
"The expenses of about 60,000 Euro - including software and service - has amortized in less than two years. Day-to-day cost savings result from direct access to documents, and the elimination of labor intensive research among several filing systems and the need to make frequent phone calls to verify data."
