We chose the BancTec solution based on fitness for purpose, overall quality and lifecycle costs
United Kingdom (PRWEB UK) 5 March 2013
BancTec, a global leader in document management solutions and outsourcing services, has been selected by Hounslow Homes Limited to deliver an Electronic Document and Records Management System (EDRMS) in coordination with BancTec partner Serengeti Systems Limited.
As an approved supplier of the Government Procurement Service Framework, BancTec was chosen by Hounslow Homes to manage the EDRMS and related services, including implementation support, software support and maintenance for more than 300 users.
“Hounslow Homes processes hundreds of documents every day, including forms, customer letters, emails and notes. In addition, our Head Office holds approximately 400,000 microfiche and each regional office holds about 30,000 paper documents. Changing to an electronic document management system will ensure our organisation operates as efficiently as possible by simplifying access to, and better managing, our company records.” said Ray Nwanze, Head of IT, Hounslow Homes. “We chose the BancTec solution based on fitness for purpose, overall quality and lifecycle costs.”
Hounslow Homes is looking to develop a long-term relationship with BancTec to assist them in implementing a corporate-wide EDRMS over a three-year period. The overall goal is to improve the effectiveness of information storage and usage across Hounslow Homes and assist in meeting efficiency and service delivery objectives.
“BancTec was selected on the strength of our proposed solution, which was the most economically advantageous for Hounslow Homes,” said Steve Downey, General Manager at BancTec. “Our solution will reduce costs, improve access to information, reduce the number of lost or misfiled documents, and improve compliance with FOI/DPA requests.”
The first implementation of the BancTec EDRMS will occur in the Anti-Social Behaviour (ASB) and Tenancy sections of Hounslow Homes, which includes three regional offices, before rolling out to cover all other business areas.
“BancTec’s corporate-wide solution will provide Hounslow Homes with a single EDRMS that is capable of servicing all corporate document and records management requirements,” said Downey.
The BancTec solution can integrate with existing IT systems and processes, such as Northgate Ohms, and Lagan CRM. This solution is based on Serengeti Systems software, which is a fully integrated document scanning and records management system.
