    Many companies in the process of their development face the problem of managing increased document flow. There are more and more documents, and it is often not known where exactly they are located-in the field of employees, contractors, or somewhere else. Accordingly, there are problems with the prompt search for documents. The number of persons involved in approving the document increases, and the time spent on approval increases accordingly. In this regard, there is a need for centralized storage of documents, managing work with them in a single information space, and automating the processes in which documents are involved.
