What is ECM?

Enterprise content management, also called electronic 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:

  • Cloud Storage
  • Automatic Backups
  • Benchmark Security
  • Document Encryption

How it Works

ECM is not just a storage space. Creating a digital repository is only a small part of the of the process.

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.

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.

    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.
