content management vendor? Go with the experts.

The Importance Of ECM Expertise
Partnering with a solution provider that has enterprise content management (ECM) solution expertise is
vital. ECM isn’t just a technology; it’s an enterprise strategy. And knowing how to apply that strategy to
make your organization run more efficiently and profitably requires ECM expertise.
The effective use of ECM solutions is a differentiator for organizations. Core business software
applications like ECM are highly-valued assets and are typically used every day throughout an organization
for as many as five to 15 years. Working with a vendor that has a focused vision on ECM and a dedicated
enterprise content management solution will provide you with the expertise to continue to see value from
your ECM vendor long-term.
A vendor with ECM expertise is acknowledged by industry analysts and media and has an established
product and presence in the market. An expert vendor should offer a pure ECM product that is flexible and
doesn’t have limitations to the functionality it can provide enterprise-wide. The solution must enable users
to do more than just store documents electronically. It should focus on business process improvement and
empower users to capture, move and manage information across the organization easily and effectively.
Plus, the vendor should know your industry as well as it knows ECM technology. An expert ECM provider
should know the problems you face every day and be able to work with you on solutions that combine your
industry needs with ECM best practices.
It’s not just good enough to be an ECM expert. You have to put that expertise into practice. How does the
vendor utilize their ECM know-how?
A true ECM expert will have an accessible community of users from your industry to continue to develop
its ECM solution based on customer needs as well as to continue to refine their ECM proficiency.
