As the amount of employees working remote continues to increase rapidly, organizations are looking for technologies that provide secure access to information from anywhere, at anytime, on virtually any device. Many organizations are discovering their existing technologies do not support collaboration or telework.
“40% of workers prefer to move to full-time remote work.”
Do you have the technologies in place to support them?
Cloud Enterprise Content Management (ECM) systems, like ImageSilo, have the security and collaboration features you need to ensure projects get done effectively, even when employees are working remote. This blog article shares the 4 key ECM features you should look for to simplify telework and remote collaboration.
Organizations needed to immediately adapt to stay at home orders, so many implemented technologies that support telework essentially overnight. There is still uncertainty around how long it will be until employees return to the office, with some even expected to continue teleworking for the foreseeable future.
The amount of employees teleworking is only going to rise so organizations must have the technologies and features in place to support effective telework. However, with many organizations unfamiliar with telework, how do you choose the right features for your remote collaboration needs?
Thankfully, Cloud Enterprise Content Management (ECM) systems make it possible for organizations to effectively collaborate, even when you have employees teleworking. The problem is that the affordable ECM systems do not have all of the features or capabilities you need for effective collaboration, while the more costly ECM systems have more features than your organization needs. When purchasing an ECM system for effective collaboration there are some features you must have, and others that are desirable or not necessary.
Look for these features when purchasing an ECM system:
1.) Full-text Search
Allows you to quickly find information based on any word or phrase.
2.) Audit Reporting
Keeps track of who accesses each document, what they did with it, and why.
3.) Document Encryption
Protects documents while being stored, shared, and accessed.
4.) Document Check Out/In
Provides a “master” version to be checked out for editing and to prevent overlapping effort.
How can effective collaboration improve performance?
By implementing an ECM system with these key features you will be able to effectively collaborate while working remote. Effective remote collaboration helps organizations perform better by streamlining processes, like approving documents, leading to an increase in revenue.
“Companies that leverage collaboration as an organizational skill are 5x more likely to be high performing.”
