Paragon – Unifies Filing Structures with HousingDocs
Paragon Community Housing Group, is a non-profit making organisation dedicated to providing a variety of affordable housing solutions to residents in over 8,000 properties. The merger of Elmbridge Housing Trust and Richmond upon Thames Churches Housing Trust (that formed Paragon) resulted in a wide range of paper documents stored in a variety of ways and so a solution was needed to deal with a large volume of paperwork.
HousingDocs were challenged to review all of the paper filing throughout both organisations and present a solution that delivered unified filing through Electronic Document Management (EDM). Through the integration of information in key systems and pre-configured cabinets in HousingDocs, unified filing was easy for Paragon to achieve.
“We were going through a number of changes during the merger and paper filing was extremely complex” comments Dave Anthony of the IT Team for Paragon. “HousingDocs pulled information from our Housing systems to create a powerful automated filing structure. This integration and automation has helped all parts of the organisation in delivering document management that matches current filing requirements”.
