Searching for information in the Document Management System
This is the primary function of any Document Management System. It means being able to find the right version of the document you are looking for, without being submerged by an unwanted deluge of other documents, and then if necessary being able to access other documents related to the initial document. This is why indexing took place in the previous step. It is also why a classification scheme may have been developed beforehand.
MULTIGEST offers multiple search options, enabling you to access the information you need simply and quickly:
- Search based on the classification index
- Search within the classification scheme
- Search based on system metadata
- Full-text searching

Going paperless involves transforming physical information media (generally paper documents) into computer files (bringing the dream of the “paperless office” to life).
A Document Management System solution such as MULTIGEST is designed to manage documents throughout their active lifetime or retention period.
