ECM tools give project teams a common platform of communication in real time

Sponsored by SearchContentManagement

Project teams within organizations can no longer rely on simply emailing items to one another and filing information on personal computer drives. Instead, they need a shared location they can access from anywhere. Most competitive businesses with dispersed and remote workforces are opting for tools that allow group communication and one-on-one exchanges. Enterprise content management, or ECM, software, once limited to document management, has broadened its applications to include records management, Web content management, workflow and collaboration. In doing so, ECM tools help organizations and departments of all sizes capture, analyze, index, store, deliver and preserve content. Available for on-premises and cloud-based applications, ECM tools can manage structured and unstructured data coming from a variety of content-enabling applications such as customer relationship management, enterprise resource planning and electronic medical records. By interfacing with legacy applications, ECM tools enable enterprises to consolidate information, avoid the problems that arise from duplicate data and ensure that project teams are always on the same page in real time.
