Eliminate costly storage and improve efficiencyPhysical storage of documents is expensive and inconvenient. Digital storage saves on space, and makes the retrieval of important documents quicker
Our Document Capture solution will actively streamline both the retrieval and indexing of documents.
Turning inconvenient paper files into efficient digital documents, business documentation is now available on demand, eliminating the need to search through endless filing cabinets.
Now employees can scan files into an existing document management system, providing secure storage and peace of mind that documents will not go missing or simply be misfiled.
In many logistical and manufacturing organisations, office staff often find themselves buried under streams of paper files.
Often stored away in dated and limited filing cabinets, employees are frequently searching for proof of deliveries and other backup documentation as required.
Assuming that paperwork has been stored away correctly, retrieving these paper documents often wastes precious time. Employees can easily spend hours each week searching for files and even longer searching for documents which have been misfiled.

Take control of your printed documentsWith sensitive information often waiting in large print queues, maintaining confidentiality can be difficult. Take control of your print environment.
With so many users, networks are often overloaded with pending invoices, receipts and quotations, which, when eventually printed can be forgotten, leaving confidential and sensitive information on display.
Combining EBC Group’s multifunctional devices with uniFLOW’s My Print Anywhere software, print environments can be centralised, allowing you to easily manage and secure your print environments.
Providing each user with a unique pin, printed documents are held in a secure print queue until authenticated at the device by the user, eliminating sensitive information being carelessly left in the print tray.
Like many logistical and manufacturing businesses, maintaining a streamlined yet cost effective and secure print environment can be a struggle, particularly with so much information being both input and printed.
Keeping critical business information secure throughout in both physical and digital format is imperative to prevent any exposure to unauthorised individuals.

Easy Document Storage
Documents on demandStoring documents in an organised yet efficient system can be demanding in a busy workplace. Now you can find your documents instantaneously
Our Enterprise Information Managment (EIM) solution, M-Files, helps businesses organise, manage and track important documents.
Simply indexing files into one centralised location, M-Files dynamic search function finds any document on demand in addition to reviewing, approving or changing the order process.
Easily customisable workflows can route information to the right people for follow-up, approvals, or to simply notify other team members when the task has been complete, providing a simple workflow for each document.
Being able to efficiently store and retrieve documents and files, is imperative when keeping up with fast paced and expanding office environments.
For businesses that require information on demand such as purchase orders, invoices and project documentation, having a productive and efficient storage system is vital to keeping a steady and reliable workflow.
Often, we find businesses with unorganised windows folders, that leave employees searching for what could be hours each week for specific documents or order histories, in addition to some documents still being held in dated filing cabinets.

Cloud in Manufacturing
Your data, systems and applications, anywhere, anytime.Cloud is a pay as you consume technology which means you can budget your IT costs into a monthly manageable sum
Cloud computing services are attractive to manufacturing firms because they enable businesses to transfer the responsibility of running on-premises hardware and software to a specialist provider, who manage the hassles and costs that otherwise burden IT departments, such as software upgrades and hardware maintenance.
Cloud is a pay as you consume technology which means you can budget your IT costs into a monthly manageable sum. A hosted Private Cloud solution via a secure privately owned fibre circuit enables the hosting of a range of services from IT data and applications, to disaster recovery or telephony which can provide significant cost savings.
Cloud Computing has been a hot topic in manufacturing IT for several years and many firms are realising the benefits and adoption is on the increase. IT is rapidly moving from a function that is run, managed and maintained in-house to an outsourced service hosted in a secure environment and managed by a specialist provider.
