A document management system (DMS) is a computer program (or set of computer programs) used to track and store electronic documents and/or images of paper documents. The term has some overlap with the concept of a content management system (CMS). DMSs are often viewed as a component of enterprise content management systems (ECMs, see here) and are related to digital asset management, document imaging, workflow systems, and records management systems.
