You need to make sure that your information is easily accessible and useful at any point throughout the content life cycle. By having the right Enterprise Content Management (ECM) system, you will be able to automate processes, increase productivity, and encourage collaboration right across your business.
Content is everywhere. Every day we are creating documents, drafting emails, populating spreadsheets, developing presentations and creating other forms of content at a faster rate than ever before. And, as more people work together, the sharing of accurate information is critical. In order to streamline this collaboration, shared access to files and other resources is essential.
With the rise in remote work environments, much of the content produced is stored in emails, on our hard drive or just saved wherever an individual leaves it. As this unstructured content filing grows, businesses have to commit to managing and storing it all. So, the premise behind an ECM is simple; give everyone easy access to the information they need to make decisions, complete projects, work efficiently, and help keep your electronic files organised.
The ECM process spans the lifecycle of your content – from creation right through to publishing and archiving. It also includes deleting the files after the required holding period, freeing up valuable space and resources.
An effective ECM solution organises existing information into the appropriate technology and makes content available to the right people at the right time.
An effective ECM strategy plays a vital role in your organisation. Inform Strategic Consulting has created countless ECM strategies to simplify business activities and reduce the amount of duplicate files and outdated information within our client’s systems. A comprehensive ECM strategy also gives you peace of mind that data is protected and not circulating somewhere it shouldn’t.
