The data your organisation holds are some of its most important assets. With data security and records management becoming areas of increasing concern, [Public Service] organisations can no longer afford to employ fragmented, disorganised or insecure systems of data management.

It enables the storage and retrieval of electronic data and, via the scanner module and page viewer, physical documents in scanned form. Intuitive access design makes for remarkable ease of use and eliminates the need for lengthy and costly staff training.

In addition, the advanced search function, Search Master, is fully integrated into the Document Master system. However big your organisation is, Search Master will ensure you instant access to the data you need. Incorporating Dynamic Classification, Advanced Intuitive Searching and Compound Terms Searching technologies, Search Master finds your documents without delay and displays excerpted information for easier recognition, including thumbnails of scans, previews of pictures and relevant text extracts.

To aid users to find content quickly, Document Master has two search functions - a Meta Data search and a Natural Language search.

Meta Data search

The Meta Data search is generally used by persons who authored content and would have a general idea of where the digital asset might be stored eg. date, author, title, subject etc.

The Natural Language search

Not certain of where the digital asset may be stored? Document Master can search ALL of the content ie. not just the meta data of assets such as documents, pdf's spreadsheets etc. This search engine also assists the user by returning extracts, suggested other search terms and contact details of "experts" who have input digital assets relating to the topic they are searching, so they are able to seek assistance from people with the greatest knowledge.

Built in User/Group Communication -

Messages can be sent to other users or groups with document attachment, which links directly to the storage location in Document Master's Digital Vault, avoiding the cumbersome uploading and transmitting of large data files.
