SmartTouch AP includes a robust document archival solution that is capable of managing unlimited files types. The short and long-term storage management functionality offers an extremely scalable solution. The drop-in product architecture will reduce product training, installation and maintenance time, plus the associated cost.

Ascend’s ECM automated archival options allow you to customize how each individual document, report, or report section is stored. You can store information centralized or decentralized to accommodate diverse storage needs. The information is stored initially in the “Active Path”, typically residing on a highly accessible media such as a hard disk. After the active retention period has elapsed, documents can be automatically moved for long-term retention to storage media such as DVD, Centera or SAN/NAS with compression and encryption. This process gives you rapid access to current reports and documents, and reduces the long-term storage cost of historical information. You can configure the system to both automatically migrate and restore information.
