Why ECM?

How enterprise content management helps solve today's top business process challenges

Most companies determine that they need a strategic enterprise content management (ECM) solution after they have identified an overarching business challenge, like handling too much paper or unstructured information that causes bottlenecks when trying to process, access or store the information.

Can you give me an example?

Consider a mortgage loan origination file. There's a lot to keep track of in that file. If a form, a signature, a bank statement or a notarization is missing, it's that much longer until close.With ECM, it's easier to track the status of documents, allow immediate access to the people who need it, and keep personally identifying information safe and secure. 

So what's my biggest challenge?

Start by focusing on six of the most common problems we hear from customers. We’re guessing one – if not all – of these will sound familiar to you.

Regulatory compliance

A well thought-out enterprise content management (ECM) solution like OnBase from Hyland Software can ease minds and facilitate audits. Here's how.

Document control

With an enterprise content management solution that allows for document management and version/revision control, losing control over critical documents can be a thing of the past.

Employee productivity

Many employee tasks involve moving paper from one person to the next. A smart ECM solution can help empower your employees to do more than push paper.

Keep track of information

A smart ECM solution allows for complete secure document management, from creation through destruction. Documents are centralized, searchable and, automatically linked to the appropriate account.

Speed business processes

A strategic ECM solution should streamline your business processes while staying flexible enough to meet your organization’s specific needs.

Too much paper

Too much paper, like resumes, receipts, work orders and invoices, consumes time and resources you can't afford to lose.
