Below you can find a synopsis of blogs written by Vibeke Bugge Kristiansen, CEO at Strator, about topics like document management and document conversion.
Uncontrolled documents – often on shared drives and in mailboxes – do not have the value they should have for the organization. At worst, they even harm, such as if it is personally identifiable information that appears to float illegally around a drive. How do you take life to control the masses?
Converting documents is just opening the file and printing it – not on paper, but in the desired file format. This is well-known in for example Word when choosing to Save As PDF – the document is then converted to PDF. How could this be requiring experienced people like us to do so? The devil is in the detail, and that is a significant part of the explanation. Another part of the explanation is sheer volume. There are typically hundreds of thousands or millions of files that are about. Following here is an insight into some of the details that will surprise you, if you have not tried converting before.
You have many different files in different formats and need to collect it for a nice uniform release. For example, there is a board meeting and the agenda has many items, each of which has some materials behind it delivered by different people. You want to collect a cohesive nice material with a cover page, the agenda and the different materials with one font, header, footer, continuous page numbering etc. After long-term Word gymnastics, you get it all together and ready to send off it. Just then you will receive an email with a correction to material in the third agenda item, which must be inserted and page numbering, table of contents etc. must be restored.
Appointment letters from a hospital have a different time, name and receiver address, but beyond that, they are the same. Based on templates, schedules and address information the basic letter can be produced. Based on the metadata of the treatment, it can be deduced what patient information pamphlet to include in the letter. This is one example.
