Portland, Ore. – April 16, 2015 - ColumbiaSoft, a leading document management software company, and Solutions, Inc., a leading developer and marketer of software for government and not-for-profit organizations in Iowa, are working together to bring paperless office technology to city and county agencies across the state of Iowa. ColumbiaSoft will join Solutions in presenting the technology at the Evolution IT conference on April 29 in Ankeny, IA.

“As a trusted provider of software and technology solutions to government agencies throughout Iowa, we took our responsibility of finding the right document management system very seriously,” said Greg Davis, Solutions, Inc. owner and president. “We rigorously analyzed the alternatives, and found ColumbiaSoft’s Document Locator offered the best value and also the most comprehensive set of capabilities. It’s the right choice for our customers in Iowa.”

Document Locator helps organizations digitize documents and automate procedures, all within a system that is fully-integrated into Microsoft Windows. The software can convert paper filing cabinets to digital, streamline the movement of files in reviews or approval steps, and can dramatically reduce the reliance on paper in the office. Files in the system are fully text-searchable and can be retrieved based on the content within. Workflow adds the ability to route files without the need to physically move paper around.

One city government in Minnesota uses Document Locator to store and manage its files so that its citizens can search and retrieve documents online from the city’s Web site. In another example, a county sheriff’s office in Florida digitized all its paper police reports, which had been stored in a warehouse 15 miles away and were difficult to obtain, so the files can be searched and retrieved immediately.

The Document Locator system will be showcased in two separate sessions at the upcoming Evolution IT emerging technologies conference in Ankeny on April 29. The annual conference, hosted by Solutions, Inc., is a special one-day event for government tech leaders to get a first-hand look at the latest technologies.
