Enterprise Content Management

Simple document storage, archiving, and retrieval for the modern enterprise

What is Enterprise Content Management?

Enterprise content management (ECM) is the process and method of storing, archiving, and retrieving documents within an enterprise-level company or a similarly large organization. With an ECM platform, documents and other files are digitized, centralized, and secured. This minimizes productivity loss related to time spent searching for files, functions as a document backup system, and ensures paper trail is always available.
