So here’s a recent success story worth a mention: A manufacturing company that implemented Document Locator into their Quality department received a higher return on investment than they anticipated. The process resulted in the company receiving accreditation for selling their manufactured products into a lucrative new market.
The primary business driver for purchasing document management was to strengthen document control activities for the Quality department. To that end, the company concentrated their deployment on building controls around approval processes, folder structure standards, metadata indexing, document security, audit trails, and automatic change notifications.
Since completing their deployment of Document Locator, the company has fulfilled the necessary Nuclear Quality Assurance audits for being a supplier to construction companies building nuclear power plants. As they communicated to ColumbiaSoft, they would have never passed the audits without the capabilities and auditability of their document management system.
