Advanced Search Defaults

This feature allows users to define a default search criteria for a specific field in a repository. Let us select the ‘Accounts Payable’ repository and the ‘invoice number’ index field  A client of ours had been using a legacy document management system. They had to add ‘0’ prefix to all invoice numbers just for the system to be able to read the values. Now whenever they had to look up any document in this repository using the invoice number criteria, they had to type the ‘0’ prefix with the rest of the value. They moved to REV in the beginning  of this year and asked us if we could help them with this issue. We came up with this feature , ‘advanced search default’ using which we can define the search function in REV to show up all values for the ‘invoice number’ index field with or without a ‘0’  prefix.   Read More

About 80% of all business information resides on paper. Advances over a period of time in imaging technologies have made it possible to move from this traditional mode of documentation to a digital one.

As things stand now, it might not be possible to eliminate paper absolutely, but there are industries that use such tremendous volumes of paper documentation in their day to day transactions that form the outside it appears that people working in those industries are overwhelmed with paper documents.
