Key Findings from New Document Capture Survey by AIIM

A new survey from AIIM is now available on EMC.com.  The report survey polled 882 information and records management professionals, IT staff and line of business executives, looking at the issues and potential benefits of  different document capture approaches, and considers the potential Return on Investment (ROI) across various  application areas. A free copy of the report is available at: http://www.emc.com/CaptureStrategies

Some of the findings included:

  • Centralized in-house scanning and mailroom scanning are set for considerable growth compared to outsourced scanning and capture.
  • Knowledge management in the form of improved searchability of business documents is the highest driver for scanning, closely followed by compliance and business process improvement.
  • Forty-six percent of users report ROI within 12 months with two-thirds seeing returns within 18 months.

It  is safe to say that companies continue to find document capture one of the safest ECM (Enterprise Content Management) investments.

What do you think? Has your company invested in document capture? Are the benefits what you had anticipated?
