The Council has a requirement for a corporate document management system or systems which will cover all the requirements of the Council for document and record management including case-files and work-flow. The aim is to make Durham County a paperlite organisation and change the culture of the organisation from being dependant on paper to using electronic documents, records and work-flows.
