Why Enterprise Content Management (ECM)?

Have you ever tried to find a document, image or other bit of strategic knowledge that you knew existed in your organization, but just couldn’t get your hands on it? Unorganized information in organizations makes it nearly impossible to locate valuable content.

Early ECM projects were about eliminating paper and filing costs or meeting regulatory document retention requirements. Today they are all about productivity for all types of users from salespeople to HR professionals to knowledge worker consumers of content and saving time and money. Nucleus Research noted that “ECM delivers $7.50 for every dollar spent.”

Where does  your organization stand on ECM? Are you missing out on access to your valuable assets and a high ROI?
