Owensboro Municipal Utilities Deploys FileNexus®

owensboroOwensboro Municipal Utilities (“OMU”) is the largest municipal electric and water system in the state of Kentucky. OMU previously shared a document repository with City of Owensboro, but outgrew what the existing Laserfiche® and IBM® Content Manager OnDemand systems could effectively support. OMU sought a document management system that was scalable, could integrate with their Cogsdale® Billing and Financial Management System and had numerous successful implementations with utilities under its belt. They found that and more in the FileNexus® Document Management System.

“When we do a search with FileNexus®, we get relevant results instantly. Our old system lacked the speed FileNexus® has.”

OMU had over 9 million records stored in their two previous document management systems that needed to be archived to FileNexus®.

After implementing FileNexus®, users found flexibility in searches and relevant results FAST – features the old systems lacked.
