Hummingbird Ltd., a developer of enterprise information management systems (EIMS), has announced that the Regional Municipality of York in Ontario, Canada, has deployed Hummingbird Enterprise in an effort to preserve, protect, and manage its electronic documents and records, enhancing the efficiency of its information management systems. The integrated document and records management, imaging and workflow technologies is intended to provide the Region with an organized, secure environment to manage the complete lifecycle of electronic documents from creation to ultimate disposition.
With Hummingbird Enterprise, documents, records, and file activities are maintained in an audit trail. Electronic information is stored, managed, and categorized in an integrated interface and shared document management repositories. With the Hummingbird Imaging software, Region staff can convert paper-based documents into electronic data through the capture, mark-up, and OCR capabilities, enabling access and storage of paper-based and electronic documents in a single document management repository. Users can categorize electronic information using Web and Windows interfaces where they can search for, share, and access protected records.
