By: | Category: Document Management

In my last post, I gave some ideas on how to get more “Paper Less” when it comes to customer and employee documents. We will soon be talking about other areas of your business like dealing with vendors, purchasing and accounts payable. But first, I thought we should take a step back and take some time to gain an understanding of all the terms and acronyms that go with this concept of Enterprise Content Management (ECM) and the Paper Less Office™.

I am sure you have seen a list of terms and abbreviations related to ECM before, and felt more confused afterward or you may have fallen asleep halfway through. I’ll try to avoid that and keep this understandable, relevant and interesting.

You can read the full PDF below explaining each term related to Enterprise Content Management (ECM). Please note that the terms are ordered by hierarchy, not alphabetically. Let’s get started.
