Promote document accessibility, collaboration and security
If file cabinets, computer desktop folders and sprawling network directories were effective ways to manage information, organisations would not be searching for technologies to replace them. An electronic document management system offers a solution — not another way to trap, misplace and mishandle content.
As part of a complete process and content management framework, Perceptive Content enhances information accessibility, promotes organised collaboration and secures content in all its forms. These functions are essential as organisations seek to improve efficiency, share knowledge and reduce risk.
At a technical level, document storage and retrieval is as simple as saving files to a disk and opening them later. But this seemingly simple concept translates into an unmanageable morass as files proliferate and document management challenges like these appear:
- Locating a desired file becomes impossible
- Unstructured information is difficult to associate with structured information in business systems
- Organisations attempt to integrate video and other forms of rich media into their business workflows
- People are sharing information and collaborating on documents informally
- A lack of security puts valuable or sensitive information at risk
- Untracked content and files complicate legal and compliance efforts
Document management from capture to disposition
Our document management products start by eliminating one of the biggest barriers to greater productivity — unmanaged content creation. Perceptive Content keeps content under control from the moment of its creation or capture.
See the Perceptive Content Retention Policy Manager in action:
Perceptive Content is built around a security model that is engineered to let you grant and revoke rights; restrict documents and document types; and conceal confidential data while preserving document integrity.
Effective document management systems require the proper classification or indexing of captured information. Integrated content models, built on industry requirements and best practices for capturing, securing, processing and locating content, lets users structure, manage and preserve to best fit their business needs.
Perceptive Content includes flexible saved, ad hoc and integrated search options.
As users across an organisation create, edit and maintain documents using any desktop application, they can easily apply version control and library services directly from Perceptive clients and a variety of interfaces, including Interact applications and web services clients.
