    A recent New York Times article, “As Paperwork Goes Missing, Private Student Loan Debt May be Wiped Away”, reported on National Collegiate, one of the largest owners of private debt, which lost potentially $5 billion in student loans due to missing paperwork.

    , Director, Enterprise Content Management

While this scenario is true and ECM solutions do handle those big paper problems well, there also are powerful solutions for small to medium businesses (SMB).

    The thought of going paperless can seem like an overwhelming task for the SMB sector. You may think that you don’t have enough paper documents or information to need an ECM solution. Or, you may struggle with information overload and massive amounts of paper. Small to mid-size businesses have their challenges, too, when it comes to managing their business information.

    It’s all about setting your business up for success and enabling future growth. Setting the infrastructure in place while your business is smaller will increase the workflow and efficiency of how it operates and will end up lowering your costs and improving your bottom line.
