The introduction of Enterprise Content Management or ECM has brought a new hope from the conventional means or paper-based document management system in various organizations.
In an organization, there is a great need for organization and collaboration of company documents and the document contents of organization. In line with this fact, there are two suggested systems that need to be adopted, executed and employed by an organization to achieve content management. The two systems are: the enterprise content management and the workspaces of teams which are part of the organization.
Though there are key differences when it comes to the value of each system, both provide features and benefits for the entire organization. However, if the two systems are integrated together the extent of the scope of benefits will increase as well. More so, the act of purchasing ECM products and other collaborative technologies can be employed to integrate the two systems
On the other hand, ECM becomes very adoptable to many organizations because of its powerful features. Because of the unstructured volume of content that exists in many companies such as documents, messages from e-mail, instant messages, videos, web pages and other related content documents ECM becomes more highlighted. Why is that? This is because ECM has the capabilities of knowledge sharing, customer satisfaction in communications, efficiency of business processes and others.
Finally, the good news about ECM are the distinct features it provides such as: diverse content management, compliance satisfaction in processing legal requirements, efficient management through multiple websites as ECM streamlines the business processes that take place in an organization.
