If you forget your history, you forget your past. This is just one of the many reasons why digitizing and organizing historical documents has become standard practice in the records management industry of late. Bexar County approached us looking for a progressive records management system that could help them catalog, organize and preserve the county’s rich historical and cultural heritage. We delivered Simplicity RMS to the city, detailing and inventorying nearly 40,000 historical records for digital capture in the process while allowing city staff to easily engage in the process of cataloging historical documents into bound volumes.
Bexar County is the 4th largest county in Texas and the 17th largest county in the United States. It is steeped in rich history and tradition, while at the same time rapidly growing with a population approaching two million. It is also where the City of San Antonio and the renowned World Heritage Site of The Alamo reside. Our software auto calculated the number of pages, number of images, and number of books during the inventory process and was used in an on-going manner to manage the records throughout the preservation production process.
