THE CORE SYSTEM
THE STANDARD CONFIGURABLE CLIENT WORKSTATION - provides user configurable access to the repository and facilitates all document management, basic scanning operations, and access to a significant portion of the overall system functionality. Depending upon the type of license issued, this client interface will control what functions the authenticated user has access to. Based upon the familiar Outlook style interface - it is easy for the user to learn and use. It allows the user to organize documents in a customized system of storage cabinets, drawers, and file folders similar to present physical world storage paradigms. Access to these storage elements and documents are controlled by permissions assigned by the system administrator. Users are only allowed to see and access storage areas and documents for which they are assigned the appropriate permissions. Users can locate files either by browsing the storage structure and viewing the displayed document information and metadata, or they can use a powerful search tool that lets them locate storage elements or documents by any of the name, description, entered data, and/or contents with various options to assist in finding exactly what is required. This client also includes a ODMA feature that allows our system to interface directly with such compliant applications as MS Word, Power Point, Word Perfect as well as a number of others. This feature allows ODMA compliant applications to store and retrieve documents directly from our system. An Outlook add-in is provided to allow access to the repository for the storage and retrieval of email messages.
