Document management system

Service category: Campus & Business

The commercial software Regisafe provides the functionality of a document management system (DMS) for the central university administration. Using a Windows-based client, the uniform filing system (implementation of file plans) and the integrated search mechanisms (full text, phonetics, synonyms) allow even large amounts of data to be kept transparent and searched according to a wide variety of criteria (files, processes, addresses, e-mail, file number, etc.). The system enables the mapping of efficient workflows and ensures the revision security of archived documents. All documents can be used via the document viewer, even if the proprietary application software with which the documents were created is not installed on the client workstation.
