Viridian – Removes Large Paper Archives with HousingDocs
With over 30,000 tenants Viridian is one of the UK’s largest housing association, and like many other associations, they faced the problems of managing large volumes of paper. With paper taking up valuable floor space as well as draining internal resources, Viridian needed to find a scaleable document management solution.
Viridian chose to use the HousingDocs EDM system throughout the organisation to allow for easy file retrieval freeing staff to focus on core housing activities. HousingDocs was initially implemented into the finance team to manage all paper based finance functions.
Christine Appiah-Caeser, Head of Accounts Payable recalls, “Finance staff used to spend large amounts of time tracking down finance invoices. The time saved finding the paperwork I need is invaluable, the whole department can recall invoices and reports without leaving their seat”.
With a number of pre configured cabinets and workflows, Viridian have been able to expand the use of HousingDocs without the need to invest large amounts of internal resource. With the ability to integrate with any internal system Viridian have been able to invest in EDM knowing that future systems will integrate with HousingDocs.
