I have been tasked with figuring out the best way to manage documents related to a new Environmental Management System being implemented within the company I work for in Q1 2010. The system I’m using must have the following features:
Accessible throughout North America (online)
Ideally not too expensive
Ideally compatible with out current systems (Lotus, ugh)
Allows document and version control
It would be awesome if it could track use statistics
Fast and user friendly
Right now the best option we have that is currently being used is something called Workspace, which is an IBM/Lotus product. It’s free for us, but slow and not very user friendly.
And a question for those of you who have experience in document control - how do you cover your ass with printed documents? Do you put a disclaimer at the bottom of the document ‘This version expires when printed’?
