  • Digital Process Transformation For SMBs

    According to the 2015 U.S. Census Report, 99 percent of all firms in the country employ less than 500 people. It’s really an amazing statistic. When you think of companies most representative of businesses in the U.S., your mind tends to default to the likes of General Motors, Microsoft, Boeing and Caterpillar, not the small shops and professional offices that most likely employ many of your neighbors.

    ECM Eases The Struggle With Managing Information

    , BIS Program Manager, ecm practitioner

    If you break down the ways that every business operates, you’ll realize that it’s all based on flows of information and content. We rely on data and information to make sales, pay bills, hire and onboard employees, manage their records and so much more. For as long as we can remember, our businesses have operated on the same basic manual- and paper-laden processes that are now being challenged with new technology and regulations. (more…)

    , BIS Program Manager, ecm practitioner

    One of the biggest drawbacks organizations have that keep them from implementing new technologies and changes is budget. It’s the most important resource you need in order to spearhead a new project.

    There are many different factors that need to be carefully considered and evaluated when choosing the right Content Management (CN) solution to fit your organization. One of the main things to consider is having an ECM platform that will integrate with your current ERP/legacy systems/line of business applications, and any other systems in your IT environment. Integration is key to a successful ECM adoption within your organization. It will cut down on training costs and will let people work from the systems they are familiar and comfortable with already.

    On a recent vacation, I made the time to dig into a book by Karen Kingston entitled, “Clear Your Clutter with Feng Shui.” I selected this book, after having witnessed a neighbor’s house almost destroyed by a gas pipe that had been struck. Thankfully, the family members were all safe. The house of course, could be rebuilt. I still felt sadness, though, for the possible loss of photos, letters, documents, children’s drawings on the refrigerator and other priceless and irreplaceable mementos that could have been lost.

    I love a well-kept yard and work very hard at hiring the right company to get my yard to look great. Admittedly, I don’t have the time or expertise to spend on my yard to keep it well-trimmed with beautiful beds, so I hire a service to do the job – better than I ever could. If I lived in a climate that got snow, I’d probably hire a plowing service to “shovel me out” – not because I can’t shovel or buy my own plow, but because someone else has the machinery to do it faster and better.

    How ECM Will Evolve in 2017

    As I sit here to write this post, I’ve pulled up my favorite Jazz station from the Amazon Prime App on my laptop and I hear Frank Sinatra’s, “The Best is Yet to Come” – a favorite.

    The best is yet to come, and won’t that be fine
    You think you’ve seen the sun, but you ain’t seen it shine

    These lyrics resonate with me as I formulate my predictions for Enterprise Content Management (ECM) for 2017. We’ve had a great year in 2016 providing ECM solutions and services to our customers.  But, in 2017, we expect to bring greater growth and expansion for customers, employees and the industry.

    How ECM Can Help Accomplish Digital Transformation

    , Director, Enterprise Content Management

    ecm_dtThe world is changing and so is the way we all work. Businesses today are challenged to find new ways to streamline processes and enhance experiences for both staff and customers. Competitive pressures mean businesses must become more efficient, agile and responsive and, at the same time, ensure compliance with standards for governance and security.

    As Charles Darwin said, “It is not the strongest of the species nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is the most adaptable to change.” This quote can be transferred to companies as well, which means that companies are successful if they adapt to their constantly changing circumstances: New customer requirements (both internal and external), changing market situations or new regulatory standards which might have an impact on the company and its organization.

    Gartner defines digital transformation as “the dynamic orchestration of human, machine and information resource interaction to deliver optimal business outcomes in a strategic and prioritized manner.” True transformation is about doing things differently, NOT about doing different things. Organizations that pursue this avenue tend to be organizations that are constantly looking at their business and looking at ways to stay ahead of the competition.  They think outside of the box to disrupt the rules of the game.
