This is where a robust Document Management System (DMS) like OpenKM comes into play. This article will explore how OpenKM can help you streamline your document management processes, turning your information into valuable knowledge.

A Document Management System (DMS) is a software solution designed to capture, store, organize, and retrieve electronic documents and files efficiently. It provides a centralized repository where businesses can manage their documents and streamline workflows. With a suitable DMS, organizations can improve productivity, enhance collaboration, ensure regulatory compliance, and reduce costs associated with manual document handling.
