Multifunction Printers are usually networked and now provide scanning functions that allow documents to be digitised and archived centrally so that they can be accessed at any time and from any location. As more and more digital documents are accumulated, it is just as important to have them organised and managed as it is for the physical ones stored in filling cabinets around the world.
MiD offers a range of Document Management System solutions that capture your business information, automate workflows, simplify processes, boost productivity, secure information, meet GDPR requirements, and start a digital transformation in your business.
