Simple conversions from Acrobat PDF docs that have been created by Word, Excel, etc., probably do not need this program. But if you are ever faced with anything more than simple, straightforward conversions, this program is definitely worth it and will save hours of work. I have not found anything else that even comes close.

Training. I can monitor and schedule CPR, EMD and BBP training easier, because PowerDMS will alert me when training cert's are about to expire. There really is no circumstances where DMS is less appropriate. It's more that our agency must realize that anything that you need your members to know or may be held accountable for must be issued through PowerDMS.

Pros

  • Creates editable spreadsheets from Excel documents that have been scanned.
  • Allows certain segments of documents to be selected for editing.
  • Allows bulk conversion.

  • PowerDMS has an agreement with our accrediting body which allows us to attach our documentation to an assessment to show compliance within PowerDMS. When we are surveyed, the surveyor is given temporary access to the software. This is more efficient by allowing them to start reviewing our documentation before their onsite visit.
  • Training of our staff is conducted in PowerDMS. Instead of blocking schedules to conduct training, staff are able to log into PowerDMS to complete all of the required training when they are free.
  • Review of policies are quick and easy. You can schedule a review to be conducted on an annual basis. PowerDMS automatically places the review in the appropriate parties' inboxes.

Cons

  • It's a little challenging to edit the row breaks.
  • Sometimes selecting all the pages in a document is cumbersome. "Select all" with custom conversion does not always choose all pages.

  • Some of the features should be quicker to come. While I work for a rather small municipality, I've seen some items that would make PDMS much more efficient (from my perspective) and I would like to see them implemented.
  • I have nothing that I could say I dislike.
  • Really, the only thing I don't like is, I wish it was smarter, and you just need to confirm your up loads, and not highlight everything.

PowerDMS has become an integral part of the managing of multiple accreditation processes at various levels within the organization. PowerDMS has also provided a mechanism to distribute and manage training processes along with training documentation.

Receive few error or conflicts. Speed can periodically be slow. Report speed is very reasonable.

Alternatives Considered

None, except for conversions in Acrobat.

We used to use a paper system, and have heard other agencies track distribution via read-receipts on emails. PowerDMS is the only system we tried.

Return on Investment

  • I save hours of work when dealing with client information. It takes only a few documents for me to recover the cost of this software in time saved.

  • Without a doubt it has made my ability to manage my clients and our accreditation program significantly more efficient.
