What is an EDRMS?

An Electronic Document & Records Management System (EDRMS) is an automated system used to manage the creation, use, management and disposal of physical and electronically created documents and records for the purposes of:

  • Supporting the creation, revision and management of digital documents
  • Improving an organisation's workflow
  • Providing evidence of business activities.

Introducing an EDRMS is a complex project that requires the need for fundamental Information and Records Management tools, systems, practices and resources to be developed.
