Cloud DMS/Archive

Arcplace has developed a cloud service that allows companies to make use of a high-end document management and archiving platform at a significantly lower cost than that for an in-house solution. Arcplace garantees 100% data storage in Switzerland.

The Cloud DMS/Archive service furthermore allows customers to archive documents in compliance with both Swiss and international archiving laws and regulations. In order to ensure disaster recovery and compliance, the Arcplace infrastructure is hosted in highly secure datacenters.

To maximize accessibility and quality, the Arcplace Operations Team monitors and manages the infrastructure from its operations center in Zurich. Both the Cloud DMS/Archive service and the datacenters are certified against the ISO 27001 information security standard.
