Daily use of digitised documents can protect fragile paper originals from damage caused by excess handling. They are also easier to backup, as part of a regular plan for business continuity and disaster recovery.
Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands (PRWEB) July 15, 2011
Ignition Ltd., an expert in document and records management services, is supporting the move towards electronic records management in the public sector by providing records management services to scan and index over half a million documents for the Maritime Authority of the Cayman Islands (MACI).
To maintain the Cayman Islands’ standing as the flag of choice for the vessel owning community, MACI strives to make use of the latest technology to provide the highest levels of customer service. With offices and inspectors operating all over the world, the Authority needs to be able to share and manage information systematically across a wide geographical area. One of the best strategies is to provide digital access to records in an Enterprise Content Management (ECM) system.
Ignition’s scanning team creates high-quality images of MACI’s paper files, in a controlled workflow process. These images are captured into the ECM system and managed according to government and international standards.
“We’re really pleased to support MACI in their move to an ECM system,” noted Sonya Sherman, a senior records consultant at Ignition. “Daily use of digitised documents can protect fragile paper originals from damage caused by excess handling. They are also easier to backup, as part of a regular plan for business continuity and disaster recovery.”
The digitised documents can be used concurrently, by multiple users, to share knowledge across various locations. This can significantly increase business efficiency and improve customer service.
