One of the major benefits of the late 20th century IT revolution was always meant to be the paperless office. However, as we all observed at the time, the explosion of personal computers in virtually every work environment meant the paper mountain seemed to grow rather than shrink.
The Department for Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) has just deployed a document records management solution, based on Microsoft Office and SharePoint Server, which strongly suggests that the paperless office is now getting closer. DEFRA's intelligent use of shared workspaces for document storage and updating is making e-records management across virtual teams a reality.
This is more than just a technology solution: as part of their solution design DEFRA also took the time to analyse their business processes and legal requirements for e-records management. Read the case study to find out the full story of how DEFRA are working smarter.
