We use the solution for records management.

How has it helped my organization?

The solution allows us to do digital management, everything being digital nowadays, without the need to resort to paper use. The entire process has been digitized. 

What is most valuable?

We like how the solution allows us to have retention of records and workflows, as well as its fire plan.

The ease of use should be addressed. If one is skillful then this will not present a problem, but a person who is not will be forced to struggle. 

Mobility, as it relates to the ability to have access, should also be addressed.
