iCaught utilizes an innovative methodology to help determine the best implementation for your system to ensure the correct configuration, first time, and according to your business requirements. The process defines your organization-wide Document Policy, which protects your organization, your documents, and drastically reduces your disaster recovery costs. You will then be in a position to maintain your document policy in a central location.

Defining a Document Policy:

All systems and documents, unless specifically excluded are admissible, in a court of law. The crucial factor is not whether a document is admissible; it is the documents’ evidential weight.

The evidential weight associated with any document managed by a document management system, electronic or not, relies on enforcing documented procedures. Enforcing a document’s evidential weight therefore relies upon companies defining and enforcing a document policy.

iCaught can assist you defining your Document Policy.

Defining a document policy requires the client first; to recognize that it is their responsibility to define and manage their document policy and second; to clearly scope which processes and documents are to be managed by the system.  The System Integrator must support their client in completing both these processes. The other clear responsibility for the System Integrator is to have a good working knowledge of how best to configure the system and enforce the evidential weight of the system itself and the documents managed within it.  This must then be related to the client’s document policy.

Unlike ISO9000, which is more process oriented, a document policy focuses on document types, which will often cross and be used within more than one business process. When defining a document type, always remember the KISS analogy, ‘Keep It Simple Stupid’. In other words, do not overcomplicate your task. An invoice is a document type, a report, and so on.
