Discover the extra addons of the LogicalDOC App for iOS!

Not everyone knows that the new mobile App was published on the Apple Store some time ago.

This new App has been designed and built for iPhone and iPad devices. Naturally, it allows you to browse the document archive, upload new documents and download existing ones, organize documents in folders, and search for them in the repository.

Furthermore, the new App allows you to create multiple profiles enabling access to various LogicalDOC installations with different users.

However, three fantastic, previously undescribed new features plug into the main application.

These new features are available through three extra paid plugins that can be bought individually or with an all-inclusive subscription.

Let us see them in detail!



Scanning of documents


Using the device's camera (iPad or iPhone), it will be possible to get a document simply by taking photos of its pages. An integrated algorithm automatically straightens the images (auto-skew) to improve the quality. Once the acquisition is completed, a PDF or image format document will be produced and saved in the folder from which the process was started.



Access to photographic information


Each type of document holds metadata, micro-information that can be useful for determining, for example, the conditions in which a specific photo was taken, for example, date, location, camera aperture and shutter speed, and device used. All this (invisible) data is defined in particular fields within the image file in Exchangeable Image File (EXIF or Exif) format. In practice, this plugin can show you the EXIF information of each image file available in the repository in a convenient and integrated way in the application.

Once the plugin has been unlocked, it will be sufficient to select an image file and activate the Image metadata function by pressing the camera icon to display the card with the metadata and spectrometric analysis of the photograph.

For more information on image metadata and EXIF format, refer to this article:



Annotation and editing of documents

This addon allows you to edit existing documents by inserting annotations, underlining and highlighting areas, changing the page order, and rotating pages of a PDF document. Once the modifications have been completed, it will be possible to save an updated version of the file on the document archive.

The new App is available on the Apple Store at the following address:

What is document management, and why is it crucial to use document management solutions?

Document management may be defined as the proper administration of a document over its whole life cycle, from creation through preservation.

Regardless of how a document is created (paper or digital), it contains data and information that must be obtained, preserved, and made available for consultation, sharing, and conservation over time.

The data contained can have various meanings (administrative accounting, legal, commercial, etc. ). Still, their correct and organized management is critical and has become an increasingly strategic process within the single corporate organization, whether it is a small reality or a medium or large one.

The increasing amount of information available must be managed in an orderly manner to allow for speedier sharing while also protecting the content; it should also be remembered that it is required to minimize degradation and the danger of loss.

IT solutions, namely document management systems or Document Management Software (DMS), may be utilized to achieve outcomes in terms of efficiency and optimization of the document management process.

These are software-based systems that manage and archive outgoing documents and receive, send, and monitor procedures and document flows (workflow).

Watch "Document Management: The 10 Fundamental Requirements" on YouTube: 


Which advantages of document management stand out the most?

There are many benefits to document management; here are some of the more important ones:


Lowered expenses for printing

Savings on printers, toners, and mailing envelopes (around 90%)

Cost savings for archives

The costs of using physical areas held by paper document archives are removed

Overall cost reduction

Cost savings are realized throughout the process, from manufacturing to document storage and distribution


Reduced document management, internal research, response times, and internal and/or external forwarding times

Document retrieval speed

structured system allows you to track old papers swiftly and make them available in real time

Increased effectiveness

The everyday use of firm tools (centralization of document management) boosts productivity and internal skills while avoiding financial losses caused by poor management

Improved competitiveness

Business operations are faster and have fewer glitches than poorly managed and underperforming businesses

Information safety

With digital document preservation, you have the assurance that the document will not be altered (opposability to third parties)

Document management: a few informative statistics

According to an IDC study done throughout Europe, the number of papers produced by businesses is gradually reducing, mainly due to advancements in document management systems and increased activities in the field of digitalization.

Even data security improvements (GDPR) appear to have contributed to the growth of document management systems since data security cannot be divorced from well-organized and effective data management.

According to another study performed by Ricoh on 2,550 European managers, 55% of organizations agree that the new privacy standards are a helpful starting point for enhancing the organization's internal processes.

We must also consider that the implementation of some rules in the fields of electronic invoicing, civil proceedings, and the health sector has aided in the acceleration of document digitization processes; despite this, the transition from paper to digital is still ongoing and has not yet concluded in 2020.

The global documentary market is rapidly expanding: it was valued at 800 million dollars in 2017 and is expected to reach 980 million dollars by the end of 2023, with a 3.6% growth rate from 2019 to 2024. (Global Document Management Software Market Report).

There are still inefficiencies to be addressed in many realities: according to a December 2019 study of the "Global Intelligent Information Management Benchmark Report," 83% of workers polled had difficulty finding a document available in their business network and had to rebuild it.

The continual development of document management systems (72%), the requirement to access a higher quantity of digital contents (68%), and digitalization activities (59%), have been highlighted as the primary reasons driving enterprises to reduce the volume of paper documents.

What fundamental needs must a modern document management system meet?

The 10 essential needs for a modern document management system may be summed up as follows:

Connection and integration with the company's existing management system

Keeping and archiving all documents

Legally acceptable document preservation using digital means

Document distribution using multi-media channels

Handling each delivery exception

Consultation in real-time through computers, tablets, and smartphones

Control of email boxes (automatic shipping and receiving)

Workflow mechanism for documents

HTML 5 web interface and client access are available

Wide range of customization and integration options


The Document Management System (DMS)


(From Wikipedia: Document management system)

“A document management system (DMS) is usually a computerized system used to store, share, track and manage files or documents. Some systems include history tracking where a log of the various versions created and modified by different users is recorded. The term has some overlap with the concepts of content management systems.

It is often viewed as a component of enterprise content management (ECM) systems and related to digital asset management, document imaging, workflow systems and records management systems”.

The true digitalization of recent times is concerned with complete operations and document flows, and therefore we speak about document workflow, which complements traditional document management.

LogicalDOC, in line with the times, is capable of quickly developing and implementing workflow procedures that contribute to the improvement of collaborative processes and allow for greater overall efficiency and competitiveness.

Document management: the LogicalDOC's solution


LogicalDOC Enterprise, the document management platform born of 15 years of expertise and hundreds of deployments, is LogicalDOC's document management solution.

To have papers available anywhere, even on the go, digitally sign them, share them with other users, alter them by historicizing the versions, and transfer them via various analog and digital methods while adhering to legal and market requirements.

Digital papers are maintained and made available for instant review, study, and transfer.


For all document flows and procedures in our suite, it serves as the "guide system."

A flow occurs when there is a document, and a process occurs when there is a flow.

LogicalDOC has taken on the issue of giving digital answers to abstract ideas for many years. In reality, the system is set up to facilitate the administration and oversight of digital documents at every stage of their existence.

LogicalDOC supports all the specialized modules in the continual evolution required by businesses and by law. It is based on high-performance database engines chosen by the client and industry leaders like Microsoft SQL Server and Oracle.

With the help of the LogicalDOC, one can:

  • transform the information system's documents into electronic documents with legal and fiscal value
  • deliver them to recipients automatically:
  • in electronic form by email or Web (including publishing in the reserved part of the site and notification to recipients via email and/or SMS)
  • archiving documents electronically ensures their ongoing legal and financial viability
  • archive all documents, whether they be on paper or digitally
  • handle the most widely used barcode systems ("barcode") for automated document indexing in electronic archives
  • provide the users' permissions for accessing the archives, restricting them to the sections they oversee
  • organize the archived documents in an autonomous, comfortable, flexible, and efficient manner, thanks to the ability to define at will "logical containers" of the archived data (the "virtual volumes"), to which the documents (or their subsets) contained in one or multiple physical archive volumes can be associated; the "virtual volumes" can be organized and reorganized several times, subsequently, at any time, according to the archiving, work, management, and viewing needs o
  • access archives over a local network, the Internet, or an Intranet for any actions you have authorized (consultation, printing, sending through email, archiving), not only from a computer but also from tablets and smartphones owing to the HTML 5 web interface
  • immediately access archived documents with software programs (for the most popular systems, such as SAP, JD Edwards, AS400, BAAN, etc.)
  • allow clients to study the papers that belong to them via a specific online portal, including notification service of the publishing of new documents via email or SMS
  • write, transmit, and monitor incoming messages and notifications, as well as dynamically change the state of archived documents
  • archiving received messages and associated alerts
  • automatically archive emails, both incoming and outgoing
  • create and manage Workflows and procedures

Is There Any Risk Using an Online DMS?

The need for a management solution has existed long before the coronavirus, and it is now an integral part of many businesses transition to remote work. Educating yourself and putting that knowledge to good use using up-to-date IT resources is crucial.

The company's valuable documents are protected from unauthorized access, easily searchable, and easily accessible.

Contracts, biographical data, letters, multimedia files, knowledge bases, social media posts, and archival materials are just some of the documents that may be managed.

For what purpose is it?

Companies often have hundreds of thousands of files in their database. When it comes to managing paperwork, every business has to confront the problem of automating and systemizing its processes. Everything is taken care of by the DM system. Perhaps the firm has outgrown its current structure, or the management team needs to implement new procedures and processes to make it more competitive.

Timely implementation of the document management system, or electronic document management system, will assist in resolving such issues and provide a valuable resource for assessing the health of various business processes. Your business will be more efficient if you can spot inefficiencies early on and make necessary adjustments to document management methods and procedures.

Can you explain the possible benefits and differences?

It's possible to maintain a more official tone while working with a document management system instead of an educational writing service that only communicates with you via email. Of course, if you have a large workforce, you may delegate jobs to them by mail and wait for a response, but this is inconvenient. Also, mail servers need to report when messages have been opened or read consistently.

The concept of workflow is used in EDMS systems. This typically consists of waypoints running parallel or in a set order. A task, due date, and report field can all be included in a single dot.

Sound electronic document management systems track users' actions on documents, such as opening a task or submitting a report. All files on the corporate EDMS may be encrypted for added security against malware and viruses.

Working with structured data is facilitated by EDMS, which is yet another significant benefit. For instance, an invoice document can be easily created by filling out a  simple form that does not require any coding experience.

Features central to document management

The growth of efficiency is guaranteed by a well-organized system for managing electronic documents because:

  • rapid data entry into the system
  • accessing information with minimal effort
  • Computerized analysis of analog and digital formats
  • Safekeeping of Sensitive Material
  • data maintenance for continued usefulness
  • the avoidance of record destruction
  • streamlining of electronic communication with outposts and collaborators

Electronic document management systems are flexible and can be tailored to the needs of any organization.

There are five categories into which the most important aspects of a safe document management system fall:

  1. Metadata attachment. To facilitate automatic information search and selection, electronic document management systems permit the addition of user identifiers, dates, and other marks to information structures.
  2. Electronic document management systems (EDMS) are used by businesses to digitize and centralize their paper documents so that employees can access them electronically, collaborate on them in real time, and use the resulting data to make better managerial decisions.
  3. Converting paper documents into digital format. The document management system enables the digitization of paper documents, text recognition for automated processing, and secure archiving.
  4. Suppose you have a secure system for managing electronic documents. In that case, you may organize your files according to metadata and indexes, making it much easier to find what you need and get work done quickly.
  5. Storing paperwork in a user-friendly and reliable program is preferable to keeping it in a locked filing cabinet. Permissions, backup, and data migration settings are all adjustable. An investment in a reliable document management program that helps keep everything in its place will pay off immediately.

Streamlining Paperwork and Electronic Filing

Think about the challenge of coordinating processes. It's an essential part of running the business. By providing pre-built document and file templates and user-defined pathways for their processing, the system will significantly expedite the time it takes to handle documents.

The document management system for safe and secure is always simple and easy to use for the end-user since he only sees his tasks and documents, regardless of the complexity of the logic of the processes behind them.

Here are some examples of document management and document flow processes:

  • Logging of all mail sent and received
  • Converting paper documents into digital form
  • Template-based document generation within the system
  • Validation, authentication, and enlistment of legal papers
  • Making official document decisions
  • Facilitating resolutions and taking automated control of performance.
  • Document sharing via electronic means
  • Computerized record keeping

Software development is carried out following the CMMI 3 model and the worldwide requirements of quality management ISO 9001.

Documents can be accessed remotely.

Modern cloud-based document management solutions must provide remote access to documents and administration of business processes. A mobile app on a mobile device cannot have all the capabilities of a robust system. In reality, however, this is not necessary. You can't make significant changes to a document on your phone; that should be done on a desktop computer.

Suppose you have mobile data protection software that notifies you of the tasks and documents assigned to you and gives you access. In that case, you may continue working without leaving the job flow.

You may read the contract that has to be agreed upon quickly and then work on it, appoint accountable executors of the assignment, or delegate its implementation.

Companies specializing in document management solutions often handle EDMS creation, rollout, and upkeep. You can depend on punctuality, professionalism, and consideration for each client's unique needs and preferences. Each organization also has a service department for handling document management software that offers help with data, updates, and training for experts.

I need to know how to get the ball rolling on moving our company's internal paperwork and procedures to a new site.

In other words, the coronavirus will eventually die off. Yes, this is a significant obstacle for all parties involved, personally and professionally. Nonetheless, difficulties can lead to unexpected benefits. And the possibility of increasing productivity is one of them. We recommend that management procedures be considered a valuable tool for optimizing a company's documents.

Even before the coronavirus, businesses were interested in finding a way to manage their operations better. This is especially true now that so many workers are choosing to telecommute. It's crucial to prepare yourself with information and apply it correctly with the help of up-to-date IT resources.

The 7 Main FAQs About Document Processing

Why is Document Processing Important for Businesses?

Document processing has become an essential part of the modern business process, with many different levels and types of paperwork to manage and deal with daily.

It's crucial that all companies, from the largest to the smallest, employ some document processing service to ensure their employees stay on top of all the work needed to keep everything running smoothly and efficiently.

This article will outline the benefits of process documentation and why any business must take advantage of it.

What is Document Processing?

Document processing is the electronic management of documents and the data within them.

That can include anything from scanning and indexing documents to storing them electronically and making them accessible to employees.

Documents come in different formats, and file types and typically hold specific information.

While old manual document handling approaches result in error-prone, time-consuming processes, they also demand that you be involved in the lengthy procedure.

But still, it's important to extract all this value from those documents so you can use them downstream - something impossible with complex manual document processing methods.

That is why document automation software has become more popular than the old-fashioned way of doing things.

How does a business get started with digital archiving?

image of paperless system

In the past, businesses would keep physical copies of important documents.

However, this took up a lot of space and made it difficult to access documents quickly.

With digital archiving, businesses can scan their documents and store them electronically; this takes up less space and makes it easy to find and share documents.

These are the steps that you should take to automate the document processing:

  • There are specific rules that govern document processing. Once you have determined those rules, the team implements structure and layout extraction.
  • OCR, also known as optical character recognition, is a method that allows the conversion of scanned documents into digital data. Another intelligent technology is handwritten text recognition (HTR), which can recognize texts written in standard letters and even different font types.
  • It is the purpose of OCR to extract data from documents, but since OCR is error-prone, it is necessary to review the extracted information manually.
  • Whenever you process a document or notice a mistake, you can flag it for manual inspection so your team members can correct it later.
  • A user-friendly format allows the processed documents to integrate easily with existing business applications.

What are the Uses of Document Processing?

Document processing automation has many uses, including sorting, filtering, creating, and manipulating data.

Many tedious tasks can be automated, making them faster and easier to complete.

Additionally, standard operating procedures can help you control access to information, ensuring that only authorized personnel can view or make changes to sensitive data.

Overall, document processing can save businesses time and money while improving security.

The process steps require minimal training, which is an ideal option for small business owners who need to get work done quickly.

In addition, document processing software may include keystroke logging detection or file encryption - essential tools in the digital age.

Several government agencies worldwide require this technology to comply with HIPAA regulations.

What are the benefits of Document Processing?

There are many benefits of document processing for businesses. Let's discuss a few below:

  1. It can help to save time by automating repetitive tasks.
  2. It can improve accuracy by eliminating human error.
  3. It can help to improve customer service by providing faster turnaround times.
  4. It can help to reduce costs by reducing the need for paper and other resources.
  5. It can help to increase efficiency by allowing employees to access documents from anywhere.
  6. It can help to improve communication by providing a central repository for all records.
  7. It can help to protect sensitive information by keeping it confidential and secure.
  8. It can help to standardize workflows and procedures.
  9. It can help businesses to go green by reducing the need for paper documents.
  10. Document processing can help companies to meet compliance requirements.

risks of digital transformation

Is there any risk to going digital?

As businesses increasingly move towards digital processes, it's essential to understand the implications of this shift. While going digital can undoubtedly benefit, there are also some risks.

One chance is that of data breaches. Information stored electronically is susceptible to hacking, but you don't have to worry about using the right software.

Additionally, digital processes can be more challenging to manage and monitor than paper-based ones. That can make it difficult to track errors and prevent them from happening in the future.

Finally, digital documents can be lost or corrupted more quickly than physical ones. For example, a power outage could destroy electronic files while paper documents would be unaffected.

Despite these risks, many businesses still choose to go digital because the benefits outweigh the risks.

Most companies already use digital tools such as email and word processing software every day, so adopting another digital process isn't much different - they're just adding another element to their current workflow.

Who can help me implement this in my organization?

A few key players can help you get started with document processing in your organization.

First, you'll need to find some quality document processing software. And finally, you'll need to find a reliable partner who can help you with the transition and provide ongoing support.

LogicalDOC can help you process documents automatically, including sorting, categorizing, and tagging them, which can save you time and effort, especially if you have many documents to process.

As an added bonus, LogicalDOC provides version control while offering complete tracking of document activities, in this way, you will always have control of everything that happens on sensitive documents.

That can be extremely helpful when collaborating with others on a project or sharing documents with clients. It doesn't get better than that. If you want to automate your document processing tasks, contact us today!
