What Does SIMDir Do?
SIMDir resolves the age old problem of the
lack of control over "Windows shared folders" and
its users. SIMDir does this without the need to store documents
in a database. When it comes to electronic data management SIMDir really
is all about Control!
SIMDir is not a "Document Management System“ (DMS) in a common sense, it is a “Document Control System” (DCS).
The important difference is that SIMDir does
not store your data in complex database systems, instead SIMDir
uses Standard Windows Folders leveraging Windows itself. SIMDir
acts as a seamless conduit directly to Windows own folders saving time by minimizes
navigation to the folder on the network. SIMDir was not designed
to replace document management systems, instead is meant to be a 'sister product'
to handle documents which do not comply with the DMS processes and where documents
are stored in their native format in Windows shared folders.
SIMDir however, is an document control system that leverages
Windows existing technologies, to organise every piece of information you have
about a client or project, based on the manager's (your) template. It takes
a more holistic and flexible view of every aspect of data handling, and
SIMDir puts you in control!
This means that from now, when you are looking for a document for a client, you will be able to find their files, emails, faxes, letters, proposals, spreadsheets, CAD files etc. pertaining to that client. SIMDir is capable of completely mimicing any manual filing system and does so far more efficiently, promoting the elusive dream of the paperless office. SIMDir is safe, easy, efficient and smart!
Is SIMDir just another Database-driven management System?
No, it is totally different!
SIMDir is not a database driven product. This
means that SIMDir does not store information and lock it into
a vault. SIMDir is unique in concept and design to any other
product currently on the market. The only product that allows you to completely
manage your project data across an organisation while working in standard Windows
folders. It is an effective solution for businesses who require a quick and
easy turn around and implementation doesn’t cost the earth. What's more SIMDir
works will ALL applications supported by Windows XP or Vista.
