The Problem

Mexichem Specialty Compounds, formerly AlphaGary Ltd, was acquired by Mexichem in 2011 and in 2016 the name was changed to bring the company more closely in line with the branding of its parent company. Apogee has been a provider of fully managed print services for the company for many years and the relationship began well before the acquisition. Apogee were approached by the company to provide a solution to the existing Document Management system as this was both out of date and unable to cope with their needs. Their existing paper-centric processes involving purchase order forms and invoices meant they were dependent on filing cabinets and storage boxes which were taking up valuable office space.

“Preventative maintenance by Apogee engineers keeps machines clean and dust free in production where dirty documents are regularly scanned.”

The Solution

Mexichem’s Financial Controller, Stevie Taylor, is continually looking for improvements in ways of working and is the company’s ‘Document Management Champion’. “Apogee replaced our legacy system with their latest Document Management system called Therefore. This software has allowed us to import our existing electronic files as well as introduce their own indexing structure to make finding documents a very simple and straightforward process. We have also incorporated legacy paper files into the new system to consolidate all of our records and free up office space.”
