Electronic content and document storage immediately alleviates the overhead of manual filing and retrieval, something Tsoumas says consumes two days’ worth of time every week. “Now, if we need a record, we just punch in the number plate or job number or customer name and everything we need is right there at our fingertips.”
The last time Porsche AG did its audit, Tsoumas and his assistant spent over four hours finding the required records; he now looks forward to the next audit. “It’ll take 5 minutes, maximum. In fact, we can give the auditors access to the system and they can pull the sample themselves, along with any other records they might like to consider.”
Digitising with FUJIFILM is delivering efficiency, ease of information access and immediacy. “With centralised information, finding everything needed is fast and simple. We no longer have to pay someone to file documents. And audit compliance is straightforward, and the system is accepted as best practice by the vehicle manufacturer. It’s just a better way to work and a step into the 21st century,” Tsoumas concludes.
