The Corner is a metaphor for "where
I'm at"! It's a place where I can say it as I see it. With 30+ years
in this business starting with Micrographics and Records Management
and evolving to SaaS and Integrated Enterprise Content Management.
Its been a great journey and I'm looking forward to the next
"paradigm shift" another buzz phrase from the past.
Outsourcing your Enterprise Content Management solution
Grid lock sucks!
With all of the news about one bail out after another and the
trillion word bounced around as if the zeros aren't going to fall
off makes one wonder.... is there a bail out for me. The answer
simply is NO! You have to do with what you get and make it go a
Often enough, and
rightfully so, that means that you have to live within the budget
you're given to get the job done. I'm all about protecting the jobs
of those faithful employees around me but when push comes to shove
instead of a new hire I'd look at outsourcing as a very viable
when it comes to the clerk kind of tasks you don't want to pay a
head hunters fee to fill. Why not employ an expert already trained
to do the job right?
not only can you control the specific dollars and response time but
you can also control the quality. Lets say you have an office or
warehouse full of boxes and file cabinets of accounting documents and an edict to get them
into the system. Not only that but you have to create a disaster
preparedness plan and have a duplicate off-site copy of all
corporate accounting information. To add insult to injury you have a
tightened budget to work with that doesn't include another employee.
What do you do .... Outsource!
Not just anywhere
but with a company that has your best interests in mind, your
security, and is ready and willing to provide customer service you
can't believe. OK you guessed it and yes this is a push for
Southern Imaging Systems. We are Americans doing the job
others don't want to do and we speak English. If you outsource with
us we'll provide remote and secure access to your
data during the conversion process. What that means is you don't even need to get IT
involved or buy software or hardware and for a small fee we'll
import the data and images directly into your in-house ECM solution if you
Bottom line is
you have to do what you got to do to get the job done and if
that takes thinking outside of the four walls then do it. Do
yourself a favor and look into it with a local service bureau or
Southern Imaging Systems. On-line secure access is an added benefit that
really makes the difference between the scan to CD crowd and the
professionals that provide end to end backfile and conversion solutions
If you don't have
an in-house, Integrated, ECM solution then let's talk about that as
well. We will be delighted to listen, understand and craft a
solution that meets your specific needs. If we don't have a solution
for you we will do the research to find the information that you
need to make an intelligent decision.
Thank you for
your time and interest.
