Print and Managed Document Services– Why do you need it? 

Managed Document Services

Printing and document management have quickly become mission-critical components of today’s business world.

Despite their importance, many companies have minimal visibility into their printing and document processes. Gone are the days when companies operated only by paper documents.

Businesses generate a great deal of data, and choosing a Document Management system that is reliable and scalable is key to automating workflows and streamlining scanning/capturing, storing, sharing, and retrieving data at a high level of security. With a document management system installed on your printer fleet, you can efficiently manage the content of your source documents and consistently deliver them.

We outline integrated document management capabilities with your multifunction printer (MFP) below.

Scan or Capture Documents

All your business documents can be scanned or captured to be accessed anytime, anywhere from your computer. Several scanning options are available with your MFP. In your secure Account, you can consolidate both paper and electronic documents. Do you need help scanning to email? See our article on SMTP settings.

Store Documents

You can store and manage electronic documents and files using your Account. The documents can then be indexed appropriately and automatically stored, making them easy to search and retrieve. This is made possible by a bar code sheet that can be applied to the documents.

Easily Share Documents

Document management services can provide powerful collaboration tools, including group sharing, to help you work effectively with remote clients and employees.

Retrieve Your Documents

An integrated document management system enables all your files to reside in one secure repository, meaning you have fewer interruptions and no more waiting for files. Get access to your files wherever you are.

Document Management Security

By integrating document management services, you can ensure that only authorized personnel will see your proprietary information. Along with setting up usernames and passwords, you can easily track users, the information they have viewed, and when they have accessed your system. Document Management Solutions can control workflows, permissions, backups, and version controls.
