Electronic Document Management

Did you know that on average, employees email 2 or more documents a day to an average of 5 people for review? This creates 10 new documents per day that are often stored in multiple locations. (Source: Harmon.ie, 2011) Managing information is harder than ever, and electronic document and records management is an emerging area of interest at the University of Toronto.

Document management is a vast and oftentimes confusing topic. Essentially, it refers to how an organization stores, manages and tracks its electronic documents. It can include a wide variety of processes, systems and features.

Building and maintaining an eDMS system is a significant investment in both tools and people. It requires on-going care and attention. It’s not for everyone or every scenario, and it shouldn’t be a random decision.
