CAB cutting down on its paperwork

Jordan's Cairo-Amman Bank (CAB) is implementing a document management solution from ProgressSoft.

Jordan's Cairo-Amman Bank (CAB) is implementing a document management solution from ProgressSoft.

The bank is to deploy the Jordanian software vendor's Enterprise Document Management Solution (PS-EDMS) across its 65 branches in Jordan and Palestine.

The project will convert all paper documents in CAB to electronic ones, thus enabling easier access and sharing of documents. Reduced storage space will be another benefit of the solution, the bank said.

Maghi Makhamreh, project manager at CAB, said the main reason behind the bank's decision to implement the solution was its need to cut down on storage costs and increase its ability to find documents easily.

"Electronifying the bank's documents will add more efficiency in our overall work, which will result in less time and effort consumption in our processing, storing and locating documents," Makhamreh commented.

Implementation of the solution would take around six months, she said.

CAB said it planed to establish an archiving centre where the storage and retrieval of documents will be centralised. Staff at the centre will be the only ones able to have access to the system and its documents.

ProgressSoft will also offer CAB consultancy and professional services related to its document management.

"These services will take place to facilitate step-by-step automation of the huge number of documents, and to ensure that our system is running properly and CAB is ultimately gaining the best performance and promised benefits," ProgressSoft project manager Hala Abu Hantash said.
