A midsized manufacturer was having trouble managing hard copy documents. Carla, the Records Management Department Manager, was spending hours trying to locate misfiled and lost paper documents, often requiring time-consuming trips to an off-site storage facility. Also, there was no formal disaster recovery plan.


Using document management software, the company scanned and digitized its records using a Xerox® ConnectKey® Technology-enabled MFP. Employees now gain immediate, secure access to digital documents using their IDs. Multiple users can now access the same updated document simultaneously, streamlining workflow. Records are replicated in the cloud for disaster recovery, offering 99% uptime and access anywhere in the world.
