Companies generate vast documents and information that they need to be managed for future reference and use. These documents and information range from invoices, records, contracts, e-mails, spreadsheets, design specifications, marketing materials, to Web pages. Imagine how many filing cabinets that would be needed to store all of the information on your Web site, in your company's network, or even within your own e-mail inbox.
Effectively and securely managing content is good for business. When information is properly managed, it is accounted for and readily available for use. And the right information at the fingertips of the right person can make the difference in a timely response to the opportunity of a lifetime.
Our Open Text ECM solutions bring together a number of collaboration, content, and process technologies into integrated solutions that work harmoniously to capture ideas, experiences, and knowledge, and manage the complete lifecycle of electronic documents, from their creation to archive and eventual deletion.
ECM combines components which can also be used as stand-alone systems without being incorporated into an enterprise-wide system.
The five ECM components and technologies were first defined by AIIM as capture, manage, store, preserve, and deliver. At IQSS we employ these basic components to ensure that we deliver world class solutions to our esteemed clients.
