Transferring old archive material and creating an interface

The Finnish Center for Pensions (ETK) needed a software solution for archival data that had been waiting on a hard drive for more than ten years, enabling it to be retrieved, used and classified again. Weasel Software built an environment for archiving and implemented an application that transferred old material to the archive. In addition, Weasel Software customized a user interface, which makes it easy to access the stored data again.

The complete archive solution was managed by Weasel Software’s team of software developers in a few months, listening to the customer’s wishes and needs.

Our responsibilities were:

  • Project definition and management
  • Defining a metadata set taking into account telegraph 2 specifications
  • Creating a DM archive library
  • Building a transfer tool
  • Building a modern interface

The technologies used were e.g. Microsoft .Net, OpenText DM, SQL Server.

Payroll Document Management Application

Thanks to a successful archive project, we have been able to continue cooperating with the Finnish Center for Pensions in numerous other contexts as well. One of them is the rationalization of the document management of the data archive of the ETC’s pay department.

Once salaries have been calculated in ETK’s payroll system, a document management application built by Weasel Software takes this information and stores it in an easy-to-use format. This is not just an archive: it is also possible to modify the status of the documents. For example, it can be indicated whether a document is new, in the process of being processed or awaiting review.

A particularly important feature is the clear and functional search system built into the application. You can retrieve information based on the properties of the documents, such as the subject or the type of invoice. A search based on the information inside the document is also possible. Because the application processes people’s personal payroll data, the GDPR angle is carefully managed.

Our responsibilities were:

  • Project definition and management
  • Defining a metadata set taking into account sähke2-specifications
  • Creating a DM archive library
  • Building a transfer tool
  • Building a modern interface
