Records Management For The Masses: Scalable ECM Solutions For Smaller Organizations
ECM Connection, September 22, 2008
Depending on the size of your organization, enterprise content management solutions may or may not have been a hard thing to come by in recent years. However, as technology continues to evolve, small business (who historically were financially hindered from investing in records management solutions) now have a variety of management options to choose from.
As this article points out, investing in ECM solutions also comes with value added benefits. An electronic management solution can not only store and organize your e-files, but it can help your company establish a compliance process.
“With an ECM system, you can configure who has access to your records, and you can deny access to unauthorized users. Approvals and denials are documented. Audit trails provide indisputable verification of who accesses information, and when that information is accessed.
Privacy regulations are met, and operations are executed far more efficiently than they would be
using a paper-based system.”
These capabilities are crucial and should be embraced by all businesses that have intellectual property (IP) to protect. Controlling the accessibility of your company’s information can help manage the authenticity of electronic records and protect your company’s sensitive information from unwanted outlets.
