The Arizona Department of Insurance, the Arizona state government agency that oversees the insurance industry in Arizona, has implemented several electronic records management projects, including the imaging and indexing of over 200,000 license application files and over 30,000 officer/member/director biographical documents.
USING VIEWCENTER IS VERY EASY. An authorized user can very easily locate records using search fields that are configurable by an administrator. Our Insurance Licensing Section is no longer spend time pulling and re-filing paper documents in large filing systems.
CREATING VIEWCENTER “COLLECTIONS” IS EASY. A trained and authorized “super user” can create and configure record collections, determine fields of information used to index and search those records, and can assign/change/revoke authority to other users to access the information and documents. No programming/coding is required.
VIEWCENTER IS POWERFUL. A collection can be configured to allow a user to locate a group of documents and export them to a ZIP file. ICM Document Solutions, the ViewCenter creator, can also establish methods to import data into ViewCenter to minimize record indexing effort and cost. ICM has established an online secure (end-to-end-encrypted) portal by which some of our customers can upload, index and submit files to us, thereby preventing our customers from having to submit paper documents and CD-ROMs containing data, and preventing us from having to store paper or to pay to have paper documents imaged and indexed.
VIEWCENTER MINIMIZED OUR RECORDS MANAGEMENT RISKS. We are now able to access records from just about anywhere, using a web browser and Internet access, which means that the viability and access to our essential records are no longer threatened by the possibility that our building may be damaged or inaccessible.
VIEWCENTER REDUCED OUR NEED FOR SPACE TO STORE RECORDS. Arizona government agencies can obtain permission from Arizona State Library, Archives and Public Records (ASLAPR) to have electronic records serve as originals, meaning that once records are imaged and indexed in accordance with ASLAPR standards, the paper version can be destroyed and the electronic version serves as the official original document.
