Document management company, MES Hybrid Document Systems, Inc has been successfully supplying and supporting document scanning solutions in public and private organizations across Canada since 1971. MES provides ECM (Enterprise Content Management) and ERM (Enterprise Records Management) solutions to organizations looking to achieve the regulatory, productivity and sustainability benefits associated with such systems. One such organization, Girl Guides Ontario Council, has recently successfully implemented MES’s document management solutions.
The Girl Guides began in 1908 when Boy Scout found Lord Baden-Powell, asked his sister, Agnes, to create a similar program for girls. The Girls Guide Ontario Council archives a great number of documents pertaining to the history of Guiding in Canada. A great deal of this information was becoming dated and the paperwork was hard to retrieve and easily became damaged. MES, which was already providing microfilming services, is now returning document in an electronic format, which allows the organization to perform simple searches and retrieve information quickly and efficiently.
