Enterprise content management (ECM)
sometimes referred to as document management or records management — is the process (strategies, methods and tools) of managing the entire lifecycle of an organization’s content, including Word docs, Excel spreadsheets, PDF files and scanned images. The goal of an ECM solution is to reduce risk and improve productivity, efficiency and customer service via the elimination of paper-based tasks and the enhancement of process visibility.
