The ISO 9001:2000 Standard:

EDR .net DMS is relevant in the 4.2.4 Clause of ISO "Control of Documents":

4.2.4 Control of Records

Records shall be established and maintained to provide evidence of conformity to requirements and of the effective operation of the quality management system. Records shall remain legible, readily identifiable and retrievable. A documentation procedure shall be established to define the controls needed for the identification, storage, protection, retrieval, time &disposition of records.

ZIGDocs maintains multiple versions of documents in the system. This gives the traceability of documents stored in the system; however while searching the final version (i.e. the legible version) is seen by the user by default. The older version is available for authorized person for reference.

Each stored document in the ZIGDocs DMS is stored with a Unique ID and hence documents are identifiable. Any authorized person can retrieve the stored documents from any part of the network make the ZIGDocs system retrievable.

The internal security and in built access control in ZIGDocs fulfill the need for who/ how the documents will be identified ; Who/ where and how the data is stored , The data is protected through an external backup mechanism or a redundancy build in the servers ; Who can retrieve the documents .

While storing a document, ZIGDocs can define the life (the expiry) of each stored document in the DMS which fulfill the control on time &disposition of documents requirement. Apart from that the work flow helps in maintaining the traceability of documents and their status.
