We are excited to introduce to you the City’s Electronic Document and Records Management System (EDRMS) which is designed to store a wide range of electronic documents and file types. It offers the ability to save documents in a location that is secure, searchable, easy to use, and can manage the lifecycle of a document automatically (retention). It helps saves the employee(s) time in finding and accessing needed documents, easy to distribute documents throughout an organization and to the public if needed, reduces paper records filing costs, we are able to easily back-up documents in case of disaster (flood, fire, theft, etc.), and saves on the wear and tear of paper records.
