New York City, New York (PRWEB) December 15, 2008
The DRS Group of Georgia, Inc. has been selected as the provider of document imaging and indexing services for the City of Suwanee, Georgia. The City's document imaging initiative will encompass multiple departments and will provide for conversion of existing paper records to electronic images.
"Our City departments needed a solution that would allow us to achieve several important and interrelated goals. First, we wanted to eliminate archives of paper records to allow for easy search and retrieval of electronic files. Second, understanding that paper records have a limited life expectancy, the City wanted to ensure compliance with the Georgia Retention Schedule for Local Governments, as established by the Georgia Archives. Third, the City needed to reduce the amount of files that will be physically moved to the new City Hall. Finally, we want to promote environmental consciousness by reducing the amount of paper required for City operations," says Jessica Roth, Assistant to the City Manager for the City of Suwanee.
"We are delighted to have this opportunity to provide the City of Suwanee with our premiere document imaging services. The challenges faced by the City of Suwanee are similar to those faced by many other local and state government clients that we currently serve. We are confident that our services will assist the City of Suwanee in satisfying its goals," said Fred Gorton, Executive Vice President of Imaging Services for DRS.
"The DRS Group is proud of our 44-year tradition of service excellence to local, state and federal government customers," said Cliff Newman, DRS President and CEO. "We are equally pleased that the City of Suwanee has selected The DRS Group of Georgia to provide such a comprehensive suite of document services for the citizens of their city.
"Today, as organizations and businesses struggle with the challenges of records management, document retention, cost-effective document conversion and delivery, The DRS Group team takes pride in its proven approach to helping thousands of customers worldwide reduce costs and improve their business processes," concludes Newman.
