INFOTECH: Bytes Partners with P2Dss to Capture Growing ERMS Market


Recent Gauteng Business News

Bytes Document Solutions, a company in the Bytes Technology Group, wholly owned by the JSE-listed Altron Group, has teamed up with Paper 2 Digital Storage Solutions (P2Dss) to capture one of the fastest growing markets, the ERMS market – electronic records management. Partnering with one of South Africa’s leading electronic record and document management solution providers, signals a new era for Bytes Document Solutions.

“P2Dss brings a wealth of expertise to Bytes from a methodology and auditing perspective,” says Shiona Blundell, divisional manager, communications and business process outsourcing, Bytes Document Solutions. “This ensures that Bytes can offer clients a holistic, end-to-end solution that combines best-of-breed technology, processes and services.”

The Benefits of the ERMS Market

Blundell adds that the benefits of electronic records management are significant. “It gives organisations the ability to manage information from creation to destruction. Records can be retained and managed in a consistent manner. Information and records can be shared across the whole organisation. Intellectual property and personal information can be properly safeguarded, and information and records can be destroyed when they no longer have value for the organisation.”

Dawid Jacobs, CEO of P2Dss, says the partnership was established to combine best-of-breed technologies, services and methodologies to provide superior global content, document management and electronic record management systems (ERMS). “We are excited by the prospects of this partnership and I believe that by combining our strengths, we can capture a large portion of this growing market.”

Jacobs points to the electronic file cabinet as the way of the future. “Think how cost-effective and efficient it would be if you were able to retrieve your files quickly and economically, and locate and distribute your documents without leaving your desk. With P2Dss and Bytes Document Solutions, this is now a reality.”

The market for cloud computing is one of the fastest growing in the ICT environment today. According to research firm IDC, worldwide revenue from public IT cloud services is forecast to reach $55.5 billion in 2014, more than double that it is today. More importantly, Gartner says it has emerged as the number one technology priority for 2011 among information technology professionals.

Business Models for the ERMS Market

Technology is readily available to enable companies to digitise paper-based documents into tamperproof electronic documents that can be easily retrieved within seconds. Furthermore, P2Dss has developed business models that are unique in the field of electronic record management.

“In terms of the ERMS market, combining our state-of-the-art technology with highly skilled and professional support, we offer the full array of services to create a paperless environment including electronically scanning, indexing, filing, storing, maintaining, and retrieving all your documents – all this at a low monthly cost,” concludes Jacobs.
