DSales (UK) Ltd, the UK distributor for the Develop range of multifunctional document imaging systems, has begun a partnership with Business IT Systems, supporting a newly developed connector for the Develop ineo MFPs to interface with the Document Management Server Assistant (DMSA) for SIMS Software.
Business IT Systems Ltd, the exclusive distributor of DMSA for SIMS, developed by Digital Link Solutions for the electronic scanning of documents into Capita's SIMS application, is used by the majority of primary and secondary schools in England and Wales to record pupil data. DMSA has been designed to make getting those documents into and out of SIMS simple and cost effective.
The connector allows Develop ineo multifunctional devices to scan documents into a pupil's record together with information previously entered. All scanned documents are indexed using summary and notes fields. Entering a word or words into the search dialog allows DMSA to return all matching documents.
Jonathan Whitworth, Managing Director of DSales (UK) said, "we are pleased to be partnering with Business IT Systems for the delivery of DMSA using the Develop ineo range of multifunctionals. The Capita SIMS software is the leading application used by schools for pupil records. Our support for DMSA means that schools can electronically scan essential pupil documents into their SIMS system using their Develop ineo multifunctional copier-printer. We believe this will prove to be a major sales USP for Develop in the education market sector."
