Document organisation in companies
Properly organize electronic documents with bitfarm-Archiv Document Management
Whoever works contract- and project-oriented requires functions to help organise the electronic documents accordingly. Apart from a formal structure most often the affiliation of content, project or contract name and number are elementary search and archiving criteria. With a database driven document management system such different perspectives and categorizations are possible, which offers more than just a simple tree structure. However, the DMS shows the user a clear requirement for filling of documents at any time, which prevents uncontrolled growth and guarantees a quick and targeted access.
bitfarm-Archiv offers many possibilities and ways to set up a suitable and fitting structure. Apart from the Explorer-like tree navigation database and control fields are available, which can be connected dynamically, depending on category and requirements. Document shortcuts depict in relationships between documents. A document is not necessarily only a member of one process, but can be linked to various projects and contexts.
Sorting and tagging
Assigning and tending to the shortcuts and database fields need not necessarily be done manually – the bitfarm-Archiv server rules offer multiple possibilities to have assignments done automatically. Pre-selected customer and supplier lists are also available as drop-down-menus. These can be transferred either fully or semi-automatically from ERP systems.

Automatic generation of process, contract and project records
Are your business documents equipped with a process, contract or project number? Can you influence their structure by adapting the settings in the ERP system? Then you can have bitfarm-Archiv collect many documents of a process / contract / project into a single record, without having a user linking them manually.
Intelligent search patterns
bitfarm-Archiv DMS uses an intelligent search pattern. For finding for example the "order number", a "big" ruleset with the position of the "order number" is not necessary. With a search pattern, this "order number" can be identified anywhere. The maintenance required is minimal with maximum labor savings. What possibly remains, is to educate the suppliers, because the document management system can of course only work with what is printed on the documents...
Electronic document transport
Various document distribution mechanisms make sure that documents quickly arrive where they are needed electronically, e.g. directly in the company with the corresponding case-worker. Controlling and document history are tools integrated to monitor the workflows.
The possibilities offered by bitfarm-Archiv are applicable to a broad range of industries. Because of the open and flexible architecture there is hardly a case, where a good or excellent adaptation was not possible. Our list of references gives some examples.
