Complete Source was using a paper-based filing system to access records for their customers. Based on the volume of records for the thousands of customers they work with, the filing system was cumbersome, time-consuming, prone-to-error and inefficient. Complete Source needed a more effective system to quickly access records while on the phone with customers, vendors and outside field reps, allowing them to have information at their fingertips. Complete Source also needed for the ability to access records remotely, from home or when reps were traveling.


To increase efficiency and provide an easy-to-access system, Applied Imaging implemented a five- user SmartSearch software system with remote access. The new system allows Complete Source the ability to scan, retrieve and automatically source documents using an electronic filing system. The new process provides efficient access to documents and records, allowing Complete Source to improve communication and provide faster responses to customers.
