If you tuned into today’s ENR webinar, The Future of Collaborative File Sharing you realized that there is considerable confusion in the construction marketplace around document collaboration (e.g., Box, DropBox), project collaboration (e.g., Procore, Aconex, PM Web), and ECM solutions (e.g., Paperless Environments, OnBase, VCM, and Alfresco). Many companies are using one or more of these solution classes instead of the proper solution class for their needs. If you were not able to attend, you are able to view it by visiting ENR’s website. The CIO from a former client (Weitz) was on the panel with me adding considerable depth to the coverage as well as practical advice.
Fresh off the heels of this very successful webinar, BCG is pleased to be offering our clients a new diagnostic service around ECM. Our ECM Readiness Assessment is a quick, economical, and comprehensive way to better understand your organization’s need for ECM technology.
The ECM Readiness Assessment allows us to take a couple of days with your organization to assess:
- the way in which your content is stored and managed,
- the software tools you have in place, and
- to what extent your organization and IT department are ready to implement better technology and tools.
The result is a scorecard of sorts with considerable detail supporting the metrics:
Upon completion of the interviews and workshops we will develop brief report that outlines how well the organization is currently managing digital content, the degree to which the organization is ready for a more comprehensive and effective approach, considerations that need to be reviewed to ensure a successful deployment, and a brief list of product recommendations. For more details, visit the ECM Readiness Assessment portion of our website where you can learn more about the approach and professionals dedicated to this process.
