Can I ultimately shred all the documents I currently store?
Documents stored in mstore comply with the principles of BSi10008, the code of practice for legal admissibility of documents stored electronically.  Therefore you can prove the authenticity of your scanned information should you need to do so, which in turn means that you can destroy the original paperwork
Can’t I store documents electronically within my Management Information System?
Yes, but from the perspective of enabling you to comply with BSi10008 (in areas such as audit, security and retention) there will be significant gaps in functionality compared to mstore.  In addition, the process involved in loading a document into the MIS is invariably longer.
Who project manages the mstore implementation?
Typically your Business Manager would manage the project, supported by the Arena Group implementation team.  On completion of the PID Arena will arrange software installation, training and ongoing support.
What additional resources are required?
No additional resources are essential.  Filing processes are typically more efficient and continue to be delivered by the same personnel who may have the capacity to address your archive.  Sometimes either additional resource or the Arena Bureau service is used to address some or all of the archive.
What software systems are being run by the other Arena mstore for education users?
In terms of Pupil Records we work with:
  • SIMS
  • CEMIS
  • Integris
  • Progresso, and others
We also have a track record creating integrations and seamless working with other departmental systems such as HR and accounting including 
  • FMS
  • PS Financials
  • Corero
  • Sage
Will I require additional hardware?
No.  The PID process will detail requirements, but the majority of our Education clients utilise their existing IT and scanning infrastructure or opt for a cloud-based solution.
"I would call Arena a strategic partner. They really understand the way our business operates which means they continually suggest new technology to further improve efficiencies and reduce costs."
