How IT Solutions Providers Can Strategically Plan A Benefits Package
All IT companies are facing a shortage of qualified workers, and this is especially true for SMB owners. It seems as though the “big boys” have the competitive edge when it comes to compensation packages, perks, and benefits.

WHITE PAPERS & CASE STUDIES
Diversify Or Die: A Copier Dealer Moves Into Managed Services
To remain in business as long as East Texas Copy Systems (ETCS), which was established in 1945, you have to be vigilant of industry trends and embrace change. During the 2008 recession, ETCS unquestionably demonstrated these abilities, first by recognizing that copier, printer and paper usage were on the decline.

Electronic Signatures, Essential For Paperless Processes
Picture this: you have got enterprise content management (ECM) figured out. Your documents are stored electronically, you route them electronically and you have abandoned the world of paper. You have arrived! That is, until, BOOM, one of your electronically stored documents needs a signature.
ABOUT ENTERPRISE CONTENT MANAGEMENT
Enterprise Content Management (ECM) is the way in which companies store and organize their documents and other content. It covers the management of all forms of information within an organization, from paper to electronic documents, email, and more. It encompasses the functions of records management and document management along with document conversion processes. Other aspects of ECM include capture, scanning, digital asset management (DAM), search, web content management, and collaboration.
The purpose of ECM is to manage the full information lifecycle, from creation through archival and disposal. ECM solutions are available on-premise as an application on an organization's network, as a service (software as a service or SaaS) where data is stored in the cloud, or as a combination of the two known as a hybrid solution.
ECM aims to increase organizational efficiency and reduce costs by allowing anyone in the organization to easily manage many documents from any location. ECM can simplify the storage, retention, version control, security, and regulatory requirements and provides superior control when compared to paper records by allowing organizations to set access levels and put viewing and editing restrictions on specific documents. In addition, by digitizing documents organizations reduce the risk of them being lost, stolen, or damaged.
