PowerDMS offers the availability to have all of your documents at your fingertips, twenty-four hours per day. For the managers, it allows for you to audit your employees and assure that they've read documents that are assigned to them. Think your employees are just needlessly clicking away and not actually viewing the documents? You can set timers to prohibit someone from signing a document before that time has run out.
Want to search for something? Enter a word, any word, and DMS will scan every document you have for that word and generate a search result for you.
My favorite? The customer service! Fantastic people who are always willing to help you and walk you through any problem you can possible have.
There isn't much that I don't like. Some small "quirks" that I have, but for the most part, I am very pleased with this software.
Make sure to talk to other users and ask a ton of questions, it's a very intricate system.
I work for a Law Enforcement Agency that is accredited by CALEA. I am required to have a full written directive system that includes Policies and Procedures, rules and regulations and other directives required by law and CALEA. This system has made my life easier by allowing me to distribute my files to the employees and control access to files, and collect signatures on documents, all with an easy menu. It's a very organized system and user-friendly. I have thousands of documents in the system and it's very easy to access them. There is even an app so that you can refer to procedures manual on the go.
When I'm required to show proof to CALEA that we are following their standards, the standards manual is integrated into the system, and it's very easy to migrate information to and from that section. Very good system to use for a document management system.
