What is Document Indexing?

Document Indexing is the process of tagging a file with information about it in order to make it retrievable. Indexing creates searchable information like dates, names and addresses that helps users find the document later. Index data is stored in a database or document management system which provides users a logical structure to find documents. 

Accurate document indexing is a must

Once a document is indexed it should be easily retrievable based on the indexing rules that you have in place. Great care should be taken when putting these rules in place. Missing or incorrect data can be very costly when documents cannot be found.
