The IFS Document Management component makes it easier to keep track of important business documents. Instead of keeping paper copies, which can easily be lost, you can store documents electronically in a central repository. The result is smoother, more accurate information flows. You can attach drawings, quotes, and notes that can be pulled up on the floor instead of users having to try to find the latest copy. This eliminates the risk of somebody using an outdated copy if they are pulling documents from paper-based sources. By pulling it from the system, you know which one is the latest revision. And speaking of system, IFS Document Management is an integrated part of IFS Applications, so it can be accessed from any business object or process in your organization. In other words, if you want a document and you’re permitted to access it, it’s yours for the asking no matter where you happen to be working in the system. IFS Document Management is a Triple A application—it ensure Accessibility, Accuracy and Agility.
