An electronic document server is a software system for organizing and storing digital scanned versions of original paper documents. Even we have e-document system, there are too large volume of document have not been scanned yet, and the amount of deteriorated data is getting big every year because the climate is hot and very humid here, so data can be deteriorated being in these conditions. Therefore an outsourcing firm is needed to work this process and we also need to improve the places for archiving the original document for the suitable conditions.
