Engineering firms provide solutions to problems. Many times the solution involves designing a product, a machine, or even computer code. Whatever the end result, it will need to meet strict criteria and at the same time accomplish a certain task. Keeping secure, organised and accessible records is essential.

Filestream works with a variety of companies in the engineering sector to enable them to:

  • Improve administrative efficiencies now required by Health and Safety legislation and, more recently, GDPR compliance
  • Integrate and enhance organisational processes, from initial design through to end product
  • Improve document security and access control
  • Improve access to information for different engineering teams
  • Reappraise their software requirements, often saving time and money

The system can also be used in all aspects of your business, not just your core activity. It is ideal for HR, accounts, supplier and customer information.

Using Filestream document management software enables engineering firms to:

  • Fully encrypt and password-protect information
  • Control what users can see and do within the system – RBAC administration ensures sensitive documents will only be seen by those who have been given permission to do so
  • Have a full audit trail and revision records history – enabling you to know who performed actions on documents and when they did it
  • Automate workflows – making current manual processing of information effortless by passing it through a pre-defined set of timed tasks for action
  • Enable secure electronic signatory signoff from third parties, who do not have access to the Filestream system
  • Automatically control document retention or deletion which allows you to set dates to automatically destroy certain documents and types of information

Using software specific to your own sector? Don’t worry, our API (Application Programming Interface) tool makes it possible to link these programs to our document management software. Documents and associated information can be transferred between systems using CSV / XML format.
