Electronic Document Management: a technology solution where the experience exceeds the expectation.
(Sydney, Australia. July 31) - Electronic Document Management (EDM) systems are delivering increased efficiency and productivity. In a recent survey conducted by CCH, a Wolters Kluwer company, 72.8% of respondents who have implemented an EDM system agreed – it has increased their efficiency and productivity. This is in sharp contrast to those who are considering implementing an EDM solution where only 31.6% expect that it will increased efficiency and productivity.
More than 100 CCH customers from professional service firms and businesses throughout the Asia Pacific region responded to a range of questions on their use of, or plans for, EDM systems. Key findings include:
- The key barrier to implementing an EDM solution is perception. Many respondents with an EDM solution report significantly fewer concerns than those considering a solution.
- 63% of respondents say that the ‘paperless ideal’ would mean that 80 – 100% of all documents and reference materials are managed ‘electronically’. 29% of respondents report having achieved this ‘ideal’ state.
- Almost two thirds of respondents expect to be using an EDM solution to manage documents and reference materials within the next 3 – 5 years.
