A high-performance Enterprise Content Management (ECM) system can help one organize and control the records, regardless of their diverse formats. Scanned archival paper records, PDFs, email messages, faxes, JPEG files, and other documents can all be stored in a single, searchable electronic repository. With the implementation of workflow and automation technologies, ECM software allows the user to process more work in less time. It also helps connect one to information stored in legacy systems to further expedite processing. An ECM system has the added benefit of helping the user address compliance directives. Regardless of the industry, there are specific areas where ECM can provide significant improvements to one's compliance efforts as well as to the business processes.
