Electronic archiving in the Document Management System

A DMS solution such as MULTIGEST is designed to manage documents throughout their active lifetime or retention period. MULTIGEST takes this duration into account, enabling administrators to define it for each type of document, either in absolute terms or relative to specific events involving the document in question or the folder to which it belongs.

Throughout this lifetime, MULTIGEST ensures the integrity and authenticity of your document information thanks to its security, traceability, signature and time-stamping functions for documents and logs.

This makes MULTIGEST your archiving solution with legal value throughout the retention period of your documents.

If the archive conservation time or regulations require archiving in a medium other than the Document Management System (for public archives, for example), MULTIGEST offers a module for transferring documents either to non-rewritable media or to an electronic archive system according to the Archives de France SEDA/MEDONA protocol.
