The Need for Document Management

What is Document Management?


Document management is a program or set of programs used to track and store electronic documents. It typically has version control and audit capabilities. Other features include capture, collaborative creation tools, search capabilities, security, workflow, and routing capabilities. Document management solutions range in size and complexity from small, standalone systems to complex enterprise-wide deployments.

Document management has some overlap with content management systems. It can be a component of enterprise content management (ECM) systems and related to digital asset management (DAM) and records management systems. An important component of most DM solutions is converting hard copy to digital. This is often done using a multifunctional peripheral (MFP) that can scan, print, and play a role in automating workflows.
