FileBRIDGE for HR creates a single repository of HR documents that can be accessed with a simple internet browser from anywhere at any time
On average, nearly two thirds of a typical HR department’s resources are allocated to document management tasks. “We recognized an opportunity to dramatically improve upon the operational and administrative challenges facing HR departments when it comes to dealing with paper documents,” says Rapkin. In order to address these challenges, Archive Systems developed its FileBRIDGE for HR technology, stemming from its flagship product FileBRIDGE Digital, which essentially eliminates the pain of administrative “busy work”, creating an efficient digital document management ecosystem within the department.
“By converting paper processes to digital processes, organizations can save money and time spent on tedious tasks by implementing workflow automation and utilizing specific functions such as electronic forms and digital signatures,” says Rapkin.
Working with digital files also solves the problem posed by geographically dispersed employees, which is a growing trend in today’s workforce. “FileBRIDGE for HR creates a single repository of HR documents that can be accessed with a simple internet browser from any location,” says Rapkin. By storing files in a cloud based platform, the HR department is able to find any company document in three clicks or less, from anywhere at any time; meanwhile, keeping full control of those documents.
The company’s unmatched services and support to clients has enabled Archive Systems to build a stable position in the competitive HR technology landscape. Archive Systems’ FileBRIDGE for HR is deployed across a broad range of industries, now managing nearly two million employee files. “We ensure that the documents stay secure in our custody and never leaves without our client’s approval,” Rapkin adds.
Archive Systems recently established a data center in Ireland to service the European Union and other parts of the globe. “With our new frontier, we will be able to broaden our services to global buyers,” Rapkin concludes.
A major focus for FileBRIDGE for HR has been on employee self-service. With the introduction of myFileBRIDGE, the new employee portal and kiosk interface, the responsibility of maintaining HR documents shifts from the HR department to the employees and managers that originate and benefit from maintaining the documents. This system frees HR resources to address more strategic needs, and improves employee engagement.
