Enterprise content management (ECM) systems have become a requisite for many organizations because they are secure, provide efficiency to operations, and save resources.
Daily, on average many organizational documents are circulating; an AIIM survey suggests that at least 15% of documents are either misfiled or misplaced. This means that multiple documents are created, and are most likely being stored in un-secure locations.
An Enterprise content management (ECM) system keeps organizations on the same page, because information stays in one secure place, which provides a more structured approach for content management.
It also improves employee productivity, helps with regulatory compliance, and speeds up business processes, providing a systematic organizational workflow.
An ECM dramatically improves productivity and improves processes. A recent survey by AIIM was conducted and it was discovered that organizations that use an ECM system resulted in an 18% increase in productivity of the organization.
