Document Circulation

DocControl - for Document Circulation Peace of Mind


Controlling the flow of documents is a critical business activity

Information in document form drives nearly all actions and decisions in any organization. Managing and controlling the flow of documents through the organization is therefore a critical element in enabling sound decision-making, agility & speed, as well as various forms of compliance and collaboration.

For many organizations well-managed document control and document workflow can be matter of business success or failure - especially those organizations where regulatory compliance or quality control & assurance (for example to apply ISO standards) are critical success factors. Other organizations may hope to automate complex workflow processes and aim for better efficiency and employee productivity, thus leading to competitive advantage.

There are countless forms of document circulation processes that require inputs, reviews, updates, comments, approvals/sign-offs or other forms of actions or acknowledgements from different parties or people. These processes aren’t always linear and sometimes involve parallel, circular or other non-linear and multi-stakeholder processes.

Paper-based vs. electronic document control

In the days of the paper-based office this meant complex paper-trails with endless checklists and logs, and admin staff dedicated to painstakingly ensuring the rules & requirements of the system were adhered to. The storing, retrieval and archiving of paper documents also posed significant challenges, risks and costs.

While the arrival of electronic documents (Word, Excel, pdf-files etc…), and electronic communication such as email, has made the distribution of documents easier, this has created a whole new set of challenges relating to version control, user rights, document access, tracing, multiple copies, visibility, levels of urgency etc..

A modern document management & circulation application deals with most of the common challenges and enables the organization to efficiently, securely and transparently validate and manage the circulation of documents in user-friendly & innovative ways.

DocControl is just such an application.
