Remember when the “Got Milk?” advertising blitz began? The campaign cleverness and branding leverage created a spinoff advertising frenzy still alive today. We thought; why not apply the same concept to Enterprise Content Management (ECM)? Have you got ECM? If not, here’s why you should…
Make Sneakernet a thing of the past.
The invoice comes in. The data is entered. The copies are made. The inter-office envelopes are addressed. The paper-chase has begun! Are you kidding me? When speed, responsiveness and the currency on which business reach exponential growth, why are we putting up with this? Not only are our mundane work-flows primarily paper-based, so are our mission critical ones! This needs to be a thing of the past. GET ECM!
Reduce labor costs instantly.
No more employees going to the file cabinet, walking by the water cooler, talking the water cooler talk, forgetting where they’re going, walking back to their desk and then suddenly remembering what they were doing in the first place.
Provide immediate access to documents.
Wait no longer! In a time where information silos are no longer fashionable in a business environment, critical records must be available and accessible 24X7. All documents should be at your fingertips.
Eliminate time-consuming document filing and retrieval.
No more stacks on the desk to be filed and then reaching out to the intern to file your most sacred of documents because your full-time employees don’t have time to file.
Implement disaster recovery plan immediately.
Worry no longer about what you will do if there is a fire or a flood! Your documents are electronic now and are backed up as well. Your organization’s historical knowledge is protected.
Provide answers quickly!
“I’ll need to pull the file and call you back”, will be a saying of the past. Answering inquiries from customers, vendors, auditors are a snap when information is located in one place.
Email documents right from your computer.
No more searching through filing cabinets or email archives looking for the impossible needle in a haystack. Within seconds documents can be located and thereafter emailed in a few additional seconds.
Retire your copier and your courier.
There’s no reason to copy documents now! It’s all at your fingertips. You can send it electronically. And there’s certainly no reason to transport those hefty boxes anymore.
Sweat no longer necessary.
Don’t sweat the small stuff takes on a whole new meaning. No more lost of misfiled documents! You KNOW where your documents are and you can produce information at a moment’s notice.
Improve information sharing.
Sharing is no longer an option – it’s an expectation. People have access to the same information at the same time and even concurrently!
Putting a price tag on: labor-intensive manual processes, lack of information sharing, the lost and misfiled documents, the angst you experience when the auditor requests a document and you can’t find it, the copier and courier, the time you spend looking through your electronic files searching for the document you need, the employees who are sitting and waiting around for someone internally to track down a document, the bottle neck in one department in duplicating documents so others can have access, and those endless trips by the water cooler. It’s expensive. ECM is priceless.
Got ECM? How can you not?
