Spectrum CPA Brings Document Management Solutions to its Customers as a Document Locator Solution Advisor

Share Article

Following their own success with the Document Locator software, the CPA firm's IT Services and Consulting Division is now providing expertise direct to customers who have similar needs for collaboration and document management tools.

For us, our document management challenge was how to leverage our human resources among three offices across the state of Oregon without having to ship paper documents or people between the offices

Spectrum IT Services, the information technology services and consulting division of the Spectrum CPA Group, is taking their knowledge of electronic document management direct to customers as a Solution Advisor for ColumbiaSoft's Document Locator document management software. After deploying Document Locator internally in 2007, the firm is now recommending and offering services to customers who wish to improve their collaboration and control over information.

"For us, our document management challenge was how to leverage our human resources among three offices across the state of Oregon without having to ship paper documents or people between the offices," said Jonathan Biviano, IT Manager at Spectrum IT Services. "Document Locator gave us a collaboration platform so that, for example, employees in our Bend office can prepare documents, account managers in Corvallis can review the documents, and then partners in the Lake Oswego office can sign-off on them."

Following their own success with the document management system, Spectrum's IT division, which began offering services to outside customers in 2008, decided it was time to use their experience deploying, configuring and managing the software to help customers solve their document management challenges.

"Many of our customers are looking for better ways to manage information and lessen their impact on the environment, yet not everyone has IT resources on hand to tackle the challenge," said Biviano. "We can recommend a proven software package in Document Locator as all or part of a solution that maximizes human and equipment resources. Spectrum IT does this either in partnership with existing IT staff, or as a company's entire IT department."

As a Solution Advisor for Document Locator, Spectrum IT Services recommends ways that businesses can improve operations with paperless document management, records management, document version control, notifications and approvals, collaboration, and more.
