No long search times anymore!

Today, in companies many analog and digital documents are filed in different places. This results in overflowing filing cabinets and chaotic multiple files in the system.

No expenditure of time for filing anymore!

Today, the conventional filing of paper documents are often folders and binders with the result that wrongly filed documents can hardly be retrieved and paper archives are constantly growing creating lack of space. In most cases only one person manages the analog information and complex supply channels.

No unnecessary additional document copies or unnecessary printing!
