ORS Group has completed the implementation of a cloud-based DocuWare electronic document management system at CDS Co-operatives. The project was part of the housing provider’s move to smaller offices in London and the consequent need to significantly reduce the amount of paper-based records and filing cabinets.
Because of the short timescale of the office move, ORS had to act fast in order to collect CDS Co-operatives’ documents and get them to the scanning facility as quickly as possible. While the documents were being scanned, ORS planned the subsequent implementation of DocuWare Cloud.
The project was delivered on time with CDS moving into their new and almost paper-free offices in December 2015. CDS can now scan incoming post daily and allocate it to staff members for action. Individuals can also access tenant documents via smartphones, tablets and PCs, with pre-assigned access rights.
