Electronic Document Management (EDM)
Electronic Document Management (EDM) is the process of managing the storage, organisation, access and retention of documents using computer based systems. To support this process University of Portsmouth is currently using a system provided by Objective. It consists of two main components: a desktop client called Navigator and a web client called Executive, both of which allow access to the EDM system itself.
EDM provides the University with a structured, auditable method of managing its electronic documentation and ensuring we are using our electronic storage space in the most effective way.
