Leicester to move electronic documents from central storage to line-of-business systems
Council appoints provider to convert many documents to PDFs
Leicester City Council (LCC) is to embark on a one-year project to convert TIFF files to PDFs and move them from a centralised storage platform into the various systems used by separate lines of business.
For the last eight years, the council has operated a central digital storage system – dubbed EDRMS – for various TIFF documents.
“A project is planned to migrate these electronic documents from the EDRMS into the various line-of business-systems used by the council,” the authority said. “Before the document-migration project can begin, there is a requirement to convert all the TIFF and other file formats specified by LCC to searchable PDFs, compile these into documents, associate the correct metadata, and save to a new file structure as per data which will be supplied by LCC.”
Leicester has chosen document management specialist Transmedia to provide the conversion service, and has awarded the company a £9,000 contract due to commence on 28 November. The value of the deal is significantly lower than the value of £75,000 that was estimated in the contract notice.
