Established in 1985, Indus manufactured microfiche readers for the Defense Department and private-labeled readers for companies such as 3M, Eastman Kodak and NCR Corporation. With the advent of electronic imaging, Indus became the North American marketing arm for a UNIX optical disk-based archiving and retrieval system called Life*ODIN. To serve the needs of the networked PC market, Indus developed a DOS-based system, V.O.I.C.E. (Virtual Office Information for Corporate Environments). In addition to the inherent cost benefits of electronic records management, the system is built on a standard, modular nonproprietary hardware configuration for the best possible value. Today, Virtual Office Information is a MS-Windows based system running on commonly used networks. Almost half of Indus’ manufactured products are exported to the European Economic Community, South America and Pacific Rim countries.
Virtual Office Information Indus’ Electronic Document and Information Management System – Virtual Office Information, is an information archival and retrieval system that runs on the latest IT networks and serves the needs of organizations large and small. It makes an organization efficient because with it, vital information is at the fingertips of the organization’s users. Any user on the IT network can retrieve information from the central storage within a few seconds after making a request. The original information is never lost, never misfiled and is always available. Multiple users can retrieve the same information simultaneously unlike with paper based manual filing systems in which only one user can have access to a file at any time. Organizations that are using Virtual Office Information can never be without it. Through its use they realize how Virtual Office Information makes their job and decision making fast and helps in making their organization save time; time, that normally with a manual filing system is wasted in searching for information that is needed.
