Regulatory agency requirements, industry certifications or simply
enhancing an organization’s business processes are just some
of the reasons why the Utility sector must have a proven records/document
management system in place. If you are still attempting to capture
and store electronic files in pre-defined directory structures,
then you are headed for disaster. Practical Programs has electronic
document management system (EDMS or DMS) products that not only
enable more time efficient document gathering methods but industry
proven management methods as well. No longer do you need to have
various files and document types scattered all across the organization
and network with little or no security applied. If you have problems
with document control or with managing documents throughout any
part of their document lifecycle, Practical Programs has a solution
that will work for a wide variety of document types and address
security needs across multiple departments. PPI offers several
products that could serve your needs.
The Dv TDM product suite is specifically designed to handle a
wide variety of document types including CAD drawings and associated
documents such as office documents, PDF’s, emails, etc. Assigned
users can even view and markup drawings and documents without ever
checking them out.
The Aquarius line of products handles a wide variety of document
types as well and offers capabilities more suited for non CAD document
Both products offer graphical workflows that can track lifecycle
events, such as changes and approvals, along with generating email
notifications at certain event points. Advanced implementations
can integrate these solutions with your other systems, i.e., accounting,
purchasing, mapping system, etc. to allow queries and document
reviews by any number of indexing methods including geographic
locations, latitude and longitude, layers, and objects.
