Who Uses EDMS?
Organizations typically start considering an electronic document management system when response times become too slow to meet customer expectations, departments don’t have bandwidth to solve recurring process bottlenecks, traditional archiving becomes too costly or when regulatory risks are exposed after a data breach or compliance fine.
For organizations that have defined but resource-intensive business processes, an EDMS is an ideal fit. Document management helps organizations across industries sidestep busywork by mitigating the need for manual document maintenance, opening up opportunities to reclaim valuable staff time and boost the bottom line.
