Document management systems (DMS)

Document management systems (DMS) are computer-based tools that allow users to access text and graphics, regardless of where they are located and in what form the data are stored. The retrieved documents can be displayed in a wide variety of formats, edited, distributed, and integrated using other communication systems such as word processing and desktop publishing. Such systems allow knowledge workers to better control, coordinate, and manage the myriad electronic documents used in decision making.
