Driven by the need to control exponentially increasing amounts of information that resides across the enterprise, many organizations are looking to create order among content chaos by leveraging ECM and document management solutions. An effective ECM solution will reduce the time, cost and complexity associated with storing, locating and collaborating on documents and data throughout the information life cycle, as well as address quality and compliance activities and requirements.
However, convincing upper management about the need for an ECM solution entails not only communicating your organization’s specific document management challenges (i.e., too much paper, too many disparate systems and manual processes, an inability to locate information, etc…), but also providing unbiased, fact-based information about the positive impact such a system can have on the company.
Analysts firms, industry trade associations, media entities and other organizations have devoted significant resources to study how ECM and document management systems can help companies achieve greater operational efficiencies, improve productivity, protect against data loss and secure confidential information. The Business Case for Enterprise Content Management: A Collection of ECM and Document Management Research Data is a collection of such research, and is designed to provide organizations with fact-based data points that reinforce the business case for deploying an ECM or document management solution.
We encourage you to download this new resource from M-Files and get the facts you need to educate your colleagues and managers about how an effective ECM solution can enable your company to address its document management challenges head-on while simultaneously improving collaboration and decision making, mitigating risks and delivering a strong ROI.
