Known as the world's safest airline, Israel's national carrier - El Al Israel Airlines Ltd - are implementing new Document Management and Imaging Systems from Version One within their UK organisation. Tightly integrated into El Al's existing accounting system, this new software will be used throughout the UK's Accounts, PR, Sales and Claims departments to electronically archive and instantly retrieve a wide variety of business documents.

"Version One's system was the most suitable, fitting our requirements ideally," commented Matthew Dubber, IT co-ordinator for the UK. "We can now look forward to dramatically streamlining our business processes and archiving all our paperwork electronically. Staff will have the ability to retrieve relevant documents immediately from their desktop, directly from our existing applications software."

The Accounting team at El Al will archive all their incoming purchase invoices, and use Version One's enterprise-wide, on-line Authorisation Module to automate their entire approval processes.

The Sales team will have the benefit of archiving all sales reports and historic sales campaigns, whilst still being able to access these when relevant, whilst PR staff will use the system to archive all their own and their agencies' documents.

On the Customer Service front, for any El Al passengers claiming for misplaced baggage, the Claims department's use of this Document Management system should result in much speedier and more efficient retrieval and filing of customer correspondence.

Matthew Dubber believes that one of the many benefits from this new system will be the quick and efficient turnaround of invoices between the relevant departments. In addition, he says that El Al will re-claim a huge amount of office space, since they'll no longer need banks of filing cabinets holding paper documents. "We expect this software to pay for itself within a matter of months, which is a fantastic return on our investment."
