Why Our Clients Use Cloud Solutions to Manage Data
We talk to clients all the time about ways to manage their data. “Data” can take many different forms – from the unstructured information that exists in Word documents, Excel spreadsheets, PDF files and scanned images -- to structured data that exists in databases, and is often generated from forms filled out by hand or on-line.
Much of this information plays essential roles in an organization’s mission-critical processes, and this is true whether it’s a small business or a large, global enterprise. Managing data is critical to success!
Companies come to us because they want to find a way to do one or more of the following:
- streamline processes
- eliminate errors
- speed workflow
- provide better customer service
- reduce risks
- improve process visibility
- empower workers to be more productive
The solutions used to manage data may be known as Document Management Systems (DMS), Electronic Data Management Systems (EDM/EDMS) or Electronic Content Management Systems (ECM/ECMS). Some can be hosted “in-house,” on the company’s own servers, but many customers benefit from a Cloud SaaS solution.
