Document management in SAP DMS

As an essential element of business processes

Information is a powerful resource in any company. Despite their importance as an information carrier, documents are often distributed across several storage locations – with little or even no relation to processes. Documents without processes, and processes without documents – both cases are less than ideal. Central, process-oriented document management is vital for a perfect overview.

After all, hardly any process exists that is not associated with at least one document. Especially the discrete industries use a variety of different documents across the product lifecycle. If incidents occur in the process flow, due to wrong information, incorrect data, or documents impossible to find, this affects the profitability of the whole company.
