 Document Parsing: The solution allows the automated parsing of the documents received from various sources like Email Fax Scanned documents SMS and web services with appropriate quality verification. This is followed by document archiving. Manual parsing is allowed in case the user receives an alert for new document type which is not previously defined where the user will have to map the regions of the document with the document template tags. The system shall allow the users to view parsed document details in a list view with hyperlinks on the related documents.  Document Archiving: The system allows tenants to define document archiving rules according to which documents will be archived by the system. The system enables retrieval of a document from the archived documents as and when required.  Document Templates and Workflows: The system enables a user to add/edit/delete document templates for various types of documents. Apart from creating standard areas in the template user will be able to add hyperlinks to the documents in the repository which will allow the system to open the relevant document. Document workflows are closely associated with document templates. The system enables queues for approval/rejection for any new document that is injected in the system and based on that next stage for the document is decided. Document versioning is strictly maintained throughout the execution.  User Rights Management System: The system categorizes the users in three parts: Super Admin Tenant and Subscriber o Super Admin: Super Admin holds supreme rights to create and manage tenants wherein they will be responsible for assigning administrative rights to the tenants for their organization. o Tenants: The tenant will be the one who will create and manage users of his organization. They will also be responsible for configuring the business rules for different modules to be accessed by subscribers. o Subscribers: The subscribers will be any internal or external users who will perform the document management activities. Any third-party users e.g. customers suppliers will also be considered as subscribers and they will be accessing the application based on the rights/permissions given to them. They can view/edit other subscriber’s documents based on the rights assigned to them.  Seamless Integration with external systems: The system allows all the users to interact with external systems like Emails Fax SMS Web services Windows office scanners and laser disks.  Intuitive Dashboard and Reports: Users can view and manage various documents from the dashboard in the predefined format.
