Your guide to a qualified digital archive

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Information is an important asset for companies that is intertwined in both digital and physical documents. While organizations are on the road to a fully paperless office they encounter a crucial issue, namely to be able to preserve the value of these documents, especially legal documents. Docbyte can help you with this by optimizing your information management by preserving and facilitating access to it.

The new Belgian law of July 21, 2016, commonly called the Digital Act, gives the opportunity to get rid of any risk by certifying your solution as a qualified archiving system. This certification requires technological, organisational and documentation improvements and this is where Docbyte’s experts can assist you with. Our team has a profound knowledge regarding the Digital Archiving legal framework and best practices and can therefore help you to get compliant.
