Companies are buried in documents, and that’s the case of many companies, no matter how much email, social media and other technology we profess to have. In order to be more efficient and better manage the inflow and creation of documents, it’s best to have a document management solution, for large companies this is referred to as enterprise content management (ECM).
Xerox convened a panel of experts to discuss this and if you want to know how to get a better handle on your documents, you should check it out.
Some issues they covered included:
Increased efficiency and productivity – organizations that effectively use their workforce, technology and innovation can improve customer service, decision making and quality of goods. Leveraging an ECM system drastically cuts the time needed to get work done, freeing employees to focus on more important, revenue-generating activities.
Better use of office equipment – transform multifunction printers (MFPs) into a cornerstone of business processes. MFPs can automate office activities, such as invoice handling, by scanning documents directly to an ECM workflow that routes the document to specific departments or colleagues. The process saves on employee time and postage fees.
Supporting the mobile worker – with ECM, employees have instant access to information from anywhere. Virtual teaming is significantly easier as ECM allows colleagues across the hallway or around the world to share business-critical information.
