Omaha, NE (PRWEB) December 28, 2005
Medical accessories manufacturer Merit Medical Systems, Inc., will use WorldView’s Electronic Document Management Solution, ImageView, as their on-line document storage solution.
Headquartered in Utah, Merit Medical develops, manufactures and distributes disposable medical accessories used in procedures such as angiography, angioplasty, stent placement, AAA (stent grafts), discography, thrombolysis and other procedures. Merit's product lines include balloon inflation devices and accessories, diagnostic and therapeutic catheters and guide wires, pressure monitoring disposables, fluid delivery systems, medication syringes, safety products, and needles.
Scheduled to go live in mid-January, Merit Medical’s decision to invest in WorldView’s Document Management Solution was based on their need to expedite document retrieval, assure secure archival, and manage company documents.
“During Merit Medical’s needs analysis we discussed their document types, document volumes, business processes and user requirements,” says WorldView president, Tom Hassenstab. “Currently, for each product they assemble, Merit Medical generates a large volume of device history records. These records consist of assembly lists, bill of materials and inspection forms which are created from Oracle reports, Word, Excel and PDF file formats. Our ImageView solution will streamline their document process and decrease the amount of time spent on retrieval, while creating a secure archive of all work completed.”
ImageView is a document imaging and management service that allows large volumes of paper generated forms and documents to be stored electronically. Merit Medical employees will have the ability to search, cross-reference and retrieve documents quickly and effortlessly from anywhere with Internet-accessible PCs. While Merit Medical will collect their data via scanning, ImageView also allows other methods of data collection, such as fax servers, e-docs and e-forms.
A key point for profit-minded companies like Merit Medical is the lower initial investment offered through WorldView’s hosted document management solution. By cutting their current paper processes, Merit Medical should realize thousands of dollars in savings per month moving forward, and expect to see their initial ROI in less than five months.
Merit Medical will implement phase one of their paperless migration from their Richmond branch. They foresee bringing on other locations in the future, making this initial partnership with WorldView their first step towards a paperless enterprise.
