What is Kern EDGE?

Kern EDGE stands for the Electronic Document Gateway for the Enterprise and it gives users the ability to store, access, share and workflow documents in a secure private cloud environment.

Kern EDGE is SaaS (Software as a Service) platform; thus, eliminating the need for servers, software maintenance, and an upfront capital investment.  EDGE is a highly configurable suite of applications for document workflow, document generation and document archiving and organization, as well as much more. 

With a document agnostic core, Kern EDGE can handle whatever business need is set in front of it.  What sets Kern EDGE apart from other workflow and archival platforms, is EDGE is built to add on to whatever ERP solution the user has.  Our team of developers takes our core, configures it to each customers business needs, and makes sure each user gets exactly what they need, at a fraction of the price.


Why We Are Involved with the Electronic Document World

For nearly 70 years, Kern has been helping companies manage their documents destined for the mailstream.  Even in an increasingly digital world, there is still a place for paper documents; businesses just need better tools for managing them.  For this, Kern introduces EDGE as a robust and cost effective web-based service that will digitize, manage, and automate your document assets.

Kern first saw the need for this with a simple question, what happens to all the paper documents when something needs to be sent back in to the business?  Does it just go back to one person who sorts it himself or to a team where it bounces around and goes through a workflow life.  Are the documents sitting in a box somewhere, or sorted in drawers?  Maybe they are scanned into computers, but is the indexing and search-ability limited?  This is where Kern found a niche in the electronic document world.

From this, we saw the need for document management in other departments within a company.  Using our flexible software as a service tool, we have found and implemented applications in the following:

  • Accounts Payable Approval
  • Accounts Receivable
  • Sales Order
  • Marketing (incoming mail-ins / online enrollment and acceptance)
  • Human Resources
  • Claims reports
  • Records Management
  • Much more
