Electronic content management, also called enterprise content management, document management, or just ECM for short, is a solution that takes all of your paper records and documents and creates digital versions for easy access and storage.
ECM solutions improve productivity by reducing the amount of time it takes employees to retrieve and process documents and saves resources spent on storing and securing business documents. The system includes:

Think about the amount of your square footage taken up by filing cabinets and paper boxes. This valuable space could be used for growth or reducing your rent. Why spend utilities on unneeded space? A well-designed content management system could reduce the amount of space needed in your office by as much as 7%.
Every lost or misplaced document or record costs time and money. Did you know that the average office worker spends 40% of their day looking for documents needed to do their job? What if you could employ a records management system to find any document in your organization in seconds simply by searching a word, document name, or check number? Enterprise content management does just that!
What is your paper disaster plan? What if your sprinkler system malfunctions? What if you have a fire or flood? What if an important box of documents goes missing? We can provide a plan to have you up and running in minutes after a disaster. Why run the risk of losing your documents when you can implement a plan that eliminates worry?
A well-oiled recovery plan can keep you from losing valuable time and critical documents. By organizing a well thought-through backup plan, your business could save time and the cost of recovering the very documents that you need to maintain it. By implementing an ECM solution you can automate backups and speed up your recovery process.
By organizing a document management system with ECM, our consultants can make sure only the people authorized to see and use important documents can do so. Proper security and automated backups can protect your company from human error and ensures your business documents are always supported and recoverable.
When our consultants discuss a paperless office environment, typical responses include: that’s impossible, it doesn't (or can't) exist, or we have already implemented document management and it didn't reduce the amount paper we utilize.
ECM is not just a digital storage space. Creating an electronic repository is only a small part of the of the process The most important time saver and best driver for productivity comes through the automated workflow or business process management. This process moves electronic documents from step to step with routing rules and time frames tied to each step of the process. Our proven, programmed workflow significantly impacts time, space, security, and regulatory compliance.

Since we bought our Laserfiche system a year and a half ago, our Laserfiche reseller, +ImageNet Consulting, has gone above and beyond to ensure that our Laserfiche solution meets all of our needs. The implementation process was smooth, user adoption was effortless and we’re already seeing a strong return on our investment.
Before implementing Laserfiche, our financial aid office struggled to output financial aid offers quickly with a paper intensive application process, ultimately frustrating students and parents. Here is how we improved student financial services and obtained $31,000 of hard savings in under two years by integrating Laserfiche with our existing Datatel Colleague ERP system (now known as Ellucian) and LincDoc eForms Creator.
ImageNet has exhibited outstanding implementation strategies throughout our installation process of our Laserfiche solution. Not only has the installation process been efficient but it has allowed our organization to further develop new business practices that are improving the level of services we are providing our customers who are the citizens of Midwest City. We have seen our supervisors embrace the software in order to integrate very complex systems in a very short period of time. ImageNet Consulting staff has made this project one of the most productive enterprise solutions in our City’s history.
