EDS from TechExpert

Based on many years of experience in automating processes, TechExpert has developed a ready-made solution for automating processes of the enterprise's contractual activities – Tech.Docs.

Electronic document management system Tech.Docs. – is a universal solution that can be quickly deployed, configured and used to optimize contract management processes.

Key goals and objectives

The Tech.Docs system based on SharePoint will allow your business to solve a number of urgent tasks:

  • Optimize the current business processes of preparation and coordination of documents
  • Implement standard forms of documents and their processing procedures
  • Simplify information search and processing processes at all levels and create a single space for storing and processing company documentation
  • To shorten the terms of creation and processing of documents, as well as to increase the efficiency and productivity of the company's work as a whole


There are several directories in this electronic document management system, namely:
  • Counterparties
  • Legal entities
  • Types of contracts
  • Negotiation routes
  • Projects
  • Contract documents
  • Documents of counterparties
A single database of contracts for all legal entities allows you to easily and quickly find the desired contract by several parameters: directly by the name of the contract, by work project, counterparty, type of contract, as well as by its status. In addition, if necessary, the system can limit access to various elements of the register of contracts.
Centralized storage of information about counterparties makes it possible to synchronize data with third-party systems, for example, 1C. In addition to basic information, the counterparty's card can store copies of statutory documents and conduct discussions.

The EDS provides functionality for setting up negotiation routes with a link to the type of contract. For each type of contract, it is possible to specify a unique list of coordinating persons. Thus, when drawing up a contract in the system, the negotiation route is automatically selected depending on the selected type of contract or an addition to it, thanks to which all contracts are standardized.



Each user has a personal account for quick access to their tasks and contracts. Data in the personal account are displayed taking into account the delimitation of access rights.

The Tech.Docs electronic document management system allows you to conduct discussions in a separate card tab of any contract/contractor/project, if necessary. Thanks to this, managers can promptly receive information from the participants in the contract negotiation process, and will not get confused in certain discussions, as they can view the discussion history at any time.

In order to quickly respond to messages in the discussion of contract negotiations and perform the necessary actions, the system creates notifications and reminders for users.
