What is Document Management?

The main objective of the DMS would be:

Allow sharing of documents between
departments at Rhodes


The requirements are as follows:

User access must be controlled

Access Control List

for each department

Reduces document management costs

It allows for the storage, management and
distribution of documents

Allows for easier retrieval of documents
