Santee Cooper had an elaborate and untrustworthy process for retaining and managing documents and records. Administrative staff were preoccupied with photocopying and spent exhaustive searches through paperwork; documents were improperly filed, damaged, or non-existent. They also experienced a loss of knowledge with employee retirement or career change.



Santee Cooper now has better utilization of administrative staff with paperless processes. Documents are preserved and easily found with electronic imaging. Research projects have been streamlined with easy search and gathering capabilities and they've experienced an 82 percent improvement in customer service response time.
