The developers at AMAGNO believe that the biggest challenge in digitization is overcoming a workforce's fear of change. That fear sometimes seems insurmountable - even when the benefits of digitization are as impressive as conventional working processes are frustrating. After all, according to AMAGNO, companies around the world lose a huge amount of time and productivity due to an ever-growing volume of lost files on network drives, impenetrable piles of paper and isolated email accounts. On top of all that, there are the additional challenges associated with regulations such as the GoBD in Germany and the EU's GDPR. AMAGNO is keen to deal with all these anxieties and shortcomings once and for all - with its Enterprise Content Management (ECM) Software, which is on show at CEBIT in Hannover.
"The biggest effect of digitization for knowledge workers in offices is being able to access valuable information in their files, scanned documents and emails in a matter of seconds. What's more, all their documents are processed automatically in a legally compliant environment instead of having to be manually archived," says Jens Büscher, founder and CEO of AMAGNO. "We empower people through digitization to focus on their talents and unlock their potential. This is exactly where the benefits lie, despite people's fear of change. And this is where our approach comes in - digital documents must be so impressive that everyone wants to work with them, and doesn't just have to," continues Büscher.
Using AMAGNO Living Documents Technology, companies can import their network drives, scan paper documents and files, and merge relevant emails. AMAGNO analyzes the digital documents and presents them in a user-friendly large-format preview, while ensuring full-text recognition of each page. Users don't have to do anything else to be able to search through every single word in all their documents, across millions of files - and in a matter of seconds. They can even use a keyboard shortcut to launch a search directly from other applications such as mail app or financial accounting software. AMAGNO displays the files it finds on screen in large format, and any terms found are highlighted. Users can also make notes on the digital documents by adding post-its or - when using a touchscreen display - digital handwritten comments, so that the digital document can be handled like an analog sheet of paper.
