Information is an indispensable factor for any enterprise. It can be a record or a document generated for every transaction that is made for future reference, either in paper or in a digital format. Printing industry is one such industry in which managing information in various formats with latest workflows and technologies could be a nightmare or a challenge for any operator or a user when each process, from a last bit of information to a printed product, always depends on another process. Information has to be harmonized artistically in order to avoid production downtime or employees pointing fingers at each other. This paper analyses how the implementation of Electronic Document Management System (EDMS) could help the printing industry to access stored documents immediately within and across departments, irrespective of geographical boundaries. This paper initially outlines a brief history, the contemporary EDMS system and some illustrated examples alongside a study conducted by a Library as a pilot area for evaluating EDMS. The paper ends with an imitative proposal that maps several document managementbased activities for the implementation of EDMS for printing industry
