Standard Register Unveils Software To Identify Solutions That Reduce Costs
Wednesday, January 30, 2002
DAYTON, Ohio--Jan. 29, 2002--Standard Register's Document Consulting Services announced today the development of Document Audit and Analysis (DAA), a software application that identifies short and long-term solutions to help clients optimize their overall document cost structure. DAA, a critical component of Standard Register's Less-Paper Strategy, is an industry-unique, thin-client software application which will be used by Document Consulting Services' associates within client engagements. It will serve as a process methodology for consultants to baseline a client's document situation, capture and perform analysis on product specifications, and provide detailed recommendations regarding document elimination, combination, and migration to the best output solution. There are three primary components of DAA: Audit, Analysis and Output. The tool is easily customized based on each client's unique business objectives. The process begins with the `audit' phase, in which discovery (document collection and survey) leads to data entry or import of specific customer data. Two optional levels of `analysis' follow the audit phase, resulting in output, or the generation of customer reports, internal maintenance, archiving, and exporting capabilities. "This application is the first of its kind and will dramatically change the way a business uses documents and critical informationwithin their enterprise,'' said Michael Pratt, Vice President of Document Consulting Services. "Clients will be able to see whatdocuments they have, the costs associated with those documents and opportunities to move to a digital environment, when appropriate.'' Document Consulting Services is a professional services business unit of Standard Register, dedicated to delivering innovative and effective document management solutions to optimize the use and flow of documents and information-related processes. Areas of Practice include Document Analysis, Document Management Services, and Document Technology Consulting.
