ECM Building Blocks

How does an ideal ECM solution fit together?

The value of enterprise content management (ECM) software goes way beyond simple scan, store and retrieve solutions. In fact, these six categories of ECM — these building blocks — encompass the functionality present in an ideal solution.

Capture, Process, Access, Integrate, Measure and Store

When your content services solution includes elements of each of these components, you will get the maximum value possible: 

  • Saving time and reducing data entry errors by eliminating paperwork in favour of accurate and efficient data capture.
  • Gaining a complete, real-time view of all information across systems and applications from a central location.
  • Improving your team’s efficiency and productivity by streamlining processes through workflow automation.
Capture

Your ECM solution should be able to capture any file type from any physical location, and automatically classify your documents.

Manage

ECM promises to optimize your processes, driving efficiency by eliminating wasted time.

Integrate

Your ECM solution should integrate with all your critical business applications, like Epic, Cerner, SAP, Lawson, Microsoft and others.

Access

An ECM solution should allow you to access your important information quickly and easily. And everyone who needs access to this content should be able to easily, from anywhere.

Measure

Your ECM solution should allow you to monitor and report on the information and activity within your solution, without involving IT or database administrators.

Conversions

Discover how you can reduce costs, align with IT investments, gain new efficiencies and mitigate risks.

Store

An ideal ECM solution will provide affordable redundancy of your data, and have your retention policies running automatically behind the scenes.
