IBMi + iView = Complete Enterprise Content Management (Part 2)
inFORM Decisions has been a leader in rapidly growing Enterprise Content Management (ECM) for storing and managing an organization’s process documentation and other content and creating tremendous buzz in the IBMi World, turning spooled file data into information you can access and use..
Having all of your files in paper form can be dangerous. Critical files stored electronically provide a valuable fail-safe should anything happen to your physical records. Having an accessible means of storage for your company files is extraordinarily valuable as it will enable you to enhance workflows/business processes, disaster recovery, document retention, and much more. Access to information is valuable – and both an ECM and a Document management Systems (DMS) can provide unfettered access to valuable information. With the ability to automate workflows and easily share files – both systems can be implemented to improve the efficiency of any paper-intensive business processes.
Enterprise Content Management is much more than just a means for storing and managing an organization’s documents. ECM also includes the tools, strategies, and processes used to capture, store, retain, and manage content. iView performs content management functions to enable the capture, storage, indexing and retrieval of spool files, merged documents and scanned forms so they are accessible via a web browser by anyone, anywhere, anytime. Here they can be annotated or signed by the authorized personnel. The iView archive engine automatically captures spool files with user defined bursting conditions, search indexes, and sorting sequences allowing user-defined sorting of the forms and reports. It eliminates the time and cost of storing, retrieving and sharing documents generated in an iSeries, System i or IBM i environment. ECM appeals to those looking to manage and configure large volumes of structured and unstructured data. Consider ECMS as an Office Assistant, able to automatically recognize the content within a document and know who, where, and when to send it.
Document management Systems are technically a sub-category of ECM – as ECM could not exist without its ability to manage documents (the core function of a DMS). Organizations use an array of scanning devices and document management applications to meet their needs, which are subject to change over time. iCapture is unique in its ability to integrate with any scanning device and route information to more than 60 ECM systems. iCapture will make document processes easy and efficient. It’s designed to meet all of your needs, including document scanning and import, forms processing, data capture, OCR/ICR data extraction and the ability to migrate the information into a document repository.
The benefits of using these systems is apparent – the only difficulty lies in choosing the right solution for your organization. Contact inFORM Decisions and learn the best solution for your needs, or watch the below video for more information.
