Portland, OR (Vocus) May 13, 2010
Archive Systems, a leading provider of document management services, today announced an agreement with The ODS Companies, a Portland-based health insurance company, to provide business records storage and Virtual File Delivery services. Virtual File Delivery enables documents to be delivered through the Web instead of by manual delivery.
“Our decision to make the transition to Archive Systems was based on several important factors. Pricing was important, but excellent communication and industry expertise also drew us closer to signing with Archive Systems. We then toured the new facility and learned about their state-of- the-art record management systems, as well as their customer service capabilities and commitments. Finally, it was their willingness to go the extra mile that closed the deal for us,” said David Shaffer, Director of Facilities & Purchasing for ODS.
ODS is storing medical and dental insurance related documents at Archive Systems’ Portland location. The new facility was awarded the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) Gold Certification. LEED is an internationally recognized certification system that measures a building or community's performance across all environmental metrics including energy savings, water efficiency, CO2 emissions reduction, improved indoor environmental quality and stewardship of resources and sensitivity to their impacts.
ODS uses Archive Systems’ Virtual Records Center (VRC), a powerful solution that brings the Records Center online. The VRC provides complete access to Archive Systems’ full range of records management services, including business records storage, Virtual File Delivery, secure document shredding, and offsite data storage.
“ODS places a high priority on their records management program and must adhere to numerous regulations. We are excited to be able to meet their needs while giving them the tools to better manage their medical records. Once companies such as ODS learn about this integration of technology to enhance their ability to instantly manage and view business-critical information, they are eager to get started,” added Andy Koval, Executive Vice President at Archive Systems.
