Printing, scanning and re-sending vendor documents is time consuming and error prone. Digitize your vendor documents using digital signatures, electronic storage and take advantage of google-like search capabilities within your own vendor documents.
The question was posed to me the other day, “what is the difference between Enterprise Content Management vs Records Management?”, or more specifically, Content Management and Records Management? The short answer is that they are both methods for managing documents but their focuses are considerably different.
If you haven’t heard about this fascinating technology, you soon will. It’s where computers start to figure out what we want, even when we don’t know what we are looking for.
Make sense? Of course not!
Enterprise Content Management is simply how you organize all the content that gets used and distributed in your company. “Content” can be documents, files, images, emails and any other company related information.
Organizations are capturing millions of data points but what are they doing with all of this data after it gets used? We like to think of electronic storage as limitless but your CIO can tell you otherwise, and Legal/Risk Managers are struggling to work with LOB Managers to reduce the liability inherently in the data. That’s where Information Lifecycle Governance (ILG) comes to into play.
