document management

The computerized management of electronic as well as paper-based documents. Document management systems generally include the following components:
  • An optical scanner and OCR system to convert paper documents into an electronic form
  • A database system to organized stored documents
  • A search mechanism to quickly find specific documents
  • Document management systems are becoming more important as it becomes increasingly obvious that the paperless office is an ideal that may never be achieved. Instead, document management systems strive to create systems that can handle paper and electronic documents together.
