Enterprise Content Management:
For Success in the Digital Age

With an Enterprise Content Management strategy, companies transform archaic paper-based processes and put structure around disconnected digital information. Drive success in the digital age by using Enterprise Content Management to create customer-centric, productivity enhancing processes across your business.

A sound ECM strategy quickly delivers a measurable business impact and positive ROI. How quickly? According to the Association for Information and Image Management (AIIM), 46% of companies that adopt an enterprise content management strategy report positive ROI within 12 months, and two thirds do so within 18 months.

The 3 Phases of an Enterprise Content Management Strategy


Phase 1

From Disparate Paper Information and Digital Assets to Centralized Digital Information:

This is where your ECM strategy begins, by moving your disparate paper documents and unorganized digital assets to be digitally stored, centralized and shared.


Phase 2

From Centralized Digital Information to Digital Processes:

Once documents and other information are digital and centralized, your organization can migrate processes to be completely digital, too.


Phase 3

From Digital Processes to Digital Experiences:

By the end of this stage, your organization’s content, processes and procedures will have been transformed to create a totally digital experience for both staff and customers, resulting in a more positive experience for everyone.
