Electronic document management system

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.

Features and benefits

EDMS offers participating institutions easy access to documents, improved tracability, cost saving and enhanced security for all types of document. Files can be:

  • 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.

How to get this service

Prospective EDMS customers should contact their relationship manager in the first instance.

We believe we've discovered the cause and implemented a workaround that has cleared the backlog and will prevent this from happening again.
