What is Enterprise Content Management & & Archiving?

With Enterprise Content Management (ECM), all data, information and documents are stored, archived and managed in a context-related manner on a single platform.

ECM systems offer numerous advantages for managing the increasing number of (un)structured electronic documents and data. Customers benefit from the wide range of functions offered by ECM systems, from versioning and collaboration functions to search options and mobile access to data.

The five phases of document processing

Nowadays Enterprise Content Management is so much more than "Archiving". Rather, an ECM system accompanies your documents, videos, photos, etc. from their receipt or creation to their final archiving. It enables your users to access documents at any place and at any time and with any end device.

Document Management (DMS)

Efficient document management (DMS) involves much more than just storing documents in a file system. In a DMS, your data is managed in a structured manner, provided with metadata, versioned and routed through your processes in a targeted manner. Editing in the process and versioning make it possible to track the current status of a transaction or document at any time. Our document management solutions also offer you the advantage of being able to display the documents you need at any place and on any device at any time.

Data archiving

The audit-proof and GDPR-compliant storage and archiving of documents requires an archiving infrastructure that meets these requirements. Inalterability, retention period and the secure deletion of data are topics that a modern archive must map. Our solutions offer you standardized interfaces to various ERP systems (SAP, MS Dynamics, JD-Edwards, etc.) and an open architecture that makes it possible to connect almost any other application. Effective storage management gives you maximum control over where your data is stored securely and cost-effectively.

Intelligent Capture

Today, digitizing analog content involves much more than simply scanning documents. Rather, the most diverse input channels (mail, paper, file systems, DMS...) are now processed by capturing tools in order to analyze and process the incoming documents. The software recognizes, for example, the type of document and automatically applies rules to extract the required metadata from the content. After such "pre-processing," the recognized documents can be routed directly to the appropriate processes, where they can be further processed either with or without the interaction of an employee.

Workflow and process management

Processes and their handling in companies are often complex and based on the individual knowledge of individual employees. The digitization of complex processes brings transparency to the company on the one hand and significantly increases effectiveness on the other. The user always has all the necessary data and documents available or can explicitly request what is missing. At the end of a process there is always a uniform, quality-assured result.

Robotic Process Automation (RPA)

Some jobs are monotonous, error-prone and cost your employees valuable time that could be used more productively elsewhere. Robotic Process Automation gives you the chance to automate such tasks to increase processing speed and improve quality. Another advantage of this technology is its ease of implementation and rapid return on investment (ROI).

Media Break Analysis

How to prevent media discontinuities in document processing

In the context of document management, a media break is the analogization of a document that already exists electronically. The question of why one should do such a thing is justified and widespread. Nevertheless, so-called media breaks exist much more often than one might think. The topic can best be explained using two examples.

Example 1: Media break at the beginning of document processing
Example 2: Unnecessary printout as avoidable media discontinuity

Talk to us about how you can design your processes to prevent media discontinuity. Together, we will find a strategy for efficient processes in your company that save time, money and nerves.
