EDMS is a digital document management system for the creation, storage and version control of texts and images.

The system also offers conversion from paper to digital format through an integrated scanning facility. It delivers a secure, robust and scalable store for documents or files. UIS offers the service to institutions within the University, including Colleges.

  • accessed instantly for editing and sharing by authorised users as soon as they are scanned or created
  • tracked easily through several versions
  • made visible to document title and other metadata searches
  • stored at a fraction of the cost of physical copies
  • encrypted for confidentiality where needed
  • created with automated technical controls to ensure compliance with data regulations.
