Document management systems that Synergy installs for businesses are reducing the need to keep paper records. They provide an easy scan-to-database system for document storage, retrieval, editing, sharing, workflow and security of critical company documents to the appropriate users on your network. The key is to make this technology as easy to use as possible.

In many instances your employees are referring to documents while working on a computer application. For example, accounts payable might be viewing your accounting program while inputting the data from a paper invoice. If you have us implement a document management system, they would scan the P.O., shipping receipt and invoice into the database. When they view the digital invoice on their monitor, they want to view the accounting application at the same time.

The answer is simply a dual monitor setup. Users can now view any document in the digital database (where they have permissions) and view and work with any application on the other monitor. Dual monitors are helpful with or without a document management system. They are the perfect complement to the "less paper office".
