The registration and management of files received by the organisation or generated
internally and the relevant issues have been an age-long task. As information
technology gained ground, the information systems supporting these tasks had already
appeared some decades ago. The deployment of the electronic file management is
not only an information technology related problem but also requires a considerable
change in the organisation culture. However, the electronic file management cannot
be regarded as an individual scope of problems and should be treated together
with other electronic administrative procedures, the electronic signature as well
as document management related issues. Electronic file management systems have
mushroomed in the past few years and careful preparation work is required for
the selection of the proper tool out of this multitude.
Due to the uniform aspect certification of file management systems, most of the
software products available today provide a comprehensive support for the entire
work process from the reception of files to sorting them out. The comprehensive
systems having an extended certification also support the management of the electronic
files provided with an electronic signature as well as the electronic administration.
Synergon has concerned itself with the deployment of electronic file management
and document management systems for years. Our own development file management
product is unique in that it also supports the registration of classified files
and file copies in addition to the provision of an entire conformity with the
legislative provisions. In addition to offering our own development product,
we also maintain a partner relation with several national file management system
suppliers, due to which we are capable of fulfilling any requirement.
