We love the cloud. It provides a pathway to get paper documents out of your filing cabinets and into electronic form. It can give you peace of mind that your data is backed up. In theory, it allows your team to access documents anywhere, anytime. But if you’ve ever thought, “We’ve got documents in the cloud, we’re good” while still struggling with overburdened employees, manual processes, or concerns about data security, you need more than just cloud storage. You need Enterprise Content Management, or ECM.

The Problem with Cloud Storage

The problem with the cloud storage alone is that it’s, well, cloudy. The more disorganized and unmanaged content you send to the cloud, the more you compound these issues. This slows down your employees, limits collaboration and automation, and obscures insights that you could use to move your organization forward. When organizations tell us they’re in the cloud, they typically mean one of two things; they’ve either adopted a single cloud storage application and stuffed everything into it so it’s difficult to find anything, or they have invested in multiple cloud-based applications that don’t share data or allow for basic collaboration. Either way, your team is wasting time hunting for files among disjointed and disorganized information. They’re also missing out on the transformative potential of an integrated and automated ECM platform.

ECM Simplifies Cloud Complexity

In your daily workload, managing scattered content across different departments, platforms and applications can be challenging. This is where ECM serves as the central hub for efficiency and automation, particularly for document-centric or document-driven tasks and processes. ECM consolidates content from disparate sources, providing a centralized repository that streamlines workflows and fosters collaboration across systems. By automating repetitive tasks and providing robust tools for document management, ECM enhances productivity while safeguarding the integrity and security of your content. That is what ECM does for your organization. It securely manages your content, while enabling seamless collaboration and driving productivity across your organization’s document-based processes.
