The archiving project
After the successful completion of the system analysis step, you need to decide and start the project with us. Once decided to start the project, there will be a kick-off meeting. In this meeting, your team will get accustomed to our experienced Project Manager. It is important for us to unburden you of your resources while we perform the archiving process.

Creation of the commissioned views/extraction and import of document files such as pdf invoices, delivery notes, etc.
More points as per the requirement(s)
- Each milestone ensures its own quality assurance process.
- The project lasts for a duration of 3-6 months as the duration depends on the complexity of the situation.
- You can be rest assured as our respective teams will also provide accounts/audits related support.
User Acceptance Test - Project Handover
Your acceptance assures the last step of this process. Post-acceptance, you will be testing the samples, checking the certificate of completeness and verifying documentation. Moreover, we will also provide our project samples for your perusal. Thus, you will have an extensive test data.
If everything progresses as per the schedule, you will then receive an acceptance report from us. At this stage, you can shut down your system(s). Now, you will observe that all the necessary information can be reviewed within the ViewBox to be archived in the best possible way.
You would realise the freedom and relaxation as the risks involved with the legacy systems will no longer impact your company. From now on, the company will start saving money in the various departments like maintenance, electricity, personnel costs, etc.
We are always there for you with our support services. This commitment holds true even after your acceptance phase. You will be fully supported by us, for example, we will extend our support when an audit is announced, or if further training is required, or may be a follow-up due to a change of an employee or a group of employees.

So that all the data is where it belongs.
Enable Efficient and Secure Access to the Relevant Data Post-takeover of the Company
In case of a takeover, generally one part of the ERP system is transferred into the new common ERP system of the leading company. For example, the data in question refers to the data for the last two years or the open processes data. Additionally, the company must check the storage periods. For instance, in Germany the storage period for the tax-relevant data is 10 years. Further, depending on the requirements of the branch, the storage periods can be much longer (say for the tracing of charges).
The major concern is the use of the remaining data. In most cases, this data should not be taken into the new ERP system. For example, what if the data still includes personal information about the employees. These employees are no longer employed by the new company due to the takeover. Now, what to do with this data that is legally relevant but technically not useful for the company?

General Data Protection
We have considered everything -
even the 'Right to be Forgotten' .
ViewBox is compliant with the new European Union – General Data Protection Regulation (EU-GDPR). GDPR directs as to how the personal data must be collected, processed, and erased.
The General Data Protection Regulation act (GDPR) of the European Union (EU) is also valid in Germany from 25th May 2018. The essential updates include the ‘right to be forgotten’. Accordingly, under certain situations, the right to have private information about a person be removed from the Internet searches and other directories.
ViewBox is in accordance with the EU-GDPR guidelines wherein such data can be made anonymous. The companies will also get an additional expanded accountability for handling such data. Moreover, in case of a risk-afflicted data processing, a ‘data protection-impact assessment’ must be carried out based on a certain criterion. ViewBox by AvenDATA prepares you for all such types of new and legal fundamental requirement(s) with a complete know-how of the legal compliance.
