Archival documents are those that are generated by organisations during the development of their activities, such as minutes, resolutions, agreements, files, payroll and accounting books etc. They can be presented in multiple formats, from textual to photographic, audio-visual or electronic. They are unique and original and their testimonial value means that they must be preserved in the long term. The importance of these documents lies not only in the information they contain, but in that they become a crucial instrument to help us understand the outcomes and events of the past. Let’s go a little deeper.
What are the characteristics of archival documents?
Alejandría, is the simplest way to organise archival documents
Meeting all these requirements becomes a challenge for the archiving of documents in organisations that handle large volumes of documentation, both in physical and digital formats. Document and archive management in companies and administrations is essential to classify and store the information generated. For this reason, from Cuatroochenta we have developed Alejandría, a software able to save, manage and control the movement and treatment of archive documents, whilst ensuring maximum security.
