Electronic Document Management, EDMS, ECM ... What are the differences?
Electronic Document Management = digital management of documents. Document management includes the creation, processing, distribution and archiving of documents as well as the search for documents.
EDMS = Electronic Document Management System according to the definition of the Gabler Wirtschaftslexikon, a "software package for document management", which, in addition to the standard services, offers additional functions such as simultaneous access by several users, multidimensional classification of individual documents and powerful keywording, as well as the administration and verification of access permissions.
ECM = Enterprise Content Management is defined by AIIM as a dynamic combination of strategies, methods and tools that capture, manage, store, preserve and deliver information to support key organisational processes. A clear demarcation between an ECM and a modern DMS turns out to be difficult, since modern document management systems do not only manage and make documents available but provide contents of most different formats and degrees of structuring.
A stunningly fast access to your documents
bitfarm-Archiv applies a new approach to recognizing paper documents and uses Omnipage® OCR , one of the world's leading text recognition systems. Based on this, our product implements a full text search. Thanks to optimized database programming, results are displayed in a matter of seconds, even from hundreds of thousands of documents.
And this is where our slogan comes from: "Don't search - find!" Searching with bitfarm is a pleasure and results are instantly avaiable. And in case full-text search is not sufficient for certain tasks, our software offers extensive possibilities for indexing by using precisely configurable index fields. To ensure that users do not have to bear the costs of maintaining these index fields, rules automate the continuous loading of once learned document types. The data collected with this method can also be processed by other software systems, like corporate accounting or ERP.
