Fast track basics of what, why, how, and who.
Since 1994, our customers (including the Department of Defense with thousands of users) have enjoyed the simplicity and affordability IMS offers. You, too, can experience this simple-to-use database and our top notch support.
The Imaging Made Simple (IMS) database was first developed in the early ‘90’s. Document Management Storage & Retrieval is a complex software database that manages unlimited amounts of images, data, voice, video, and any other digital formats. To properly manage documents, there must be multiple index fields for related data so that documents may be cross referenced for searches at a later time. This database also operates in real time in order to access documents and files simultaneously by multiple users.
Most companies have some type of system to organize all their paper documents and computer files. Typical office settings are using the conventional filing cabinets for storage and retrieval purposes. Other offices have moved to the next step, which is two fold: using their filing cabinets and scanning their documents into a server. Both methods are still used, but there are new ways of enhancing the process of storing and retrieving documents. There are disasters waiting to happen with the outdated ways of managing documents; with IMS we can help your office achieve numerous improvements.
IMS is an open platform, nonproprietary document storage and retrieval system. IMS has many features and is extremely robust in handling small, medium, and large-sized companies’ applications. There are a lot of core benefits about IMS that supersede conventional filing cabinets and servers, and many different types of businesses find particular features very beneficial.
IMS is a software solution that allows a small office or even an enterprise-level company to have documents imaged and managed; it is simple to use and very affordable. IMS truly lives up to its name due to its simplicity. From the beginning, the design of IMS was to remain simplistic and scaleable. Since IMS is scaleable, the software can begin in a stand alone PC and then be upgraded to fit an enterprise-level network! There is no longer a need to purchase options that are not needed in the beginning. As the organization grows, IMS can grow with the organization. IMS software consists of scanning, indexing, retrieving, and archiving as its main functions.
