AIIM Article - Choosing the Right Capture Methodology

The ability to capture business content and make its information available is an essential element of any enterprise. It is vital that the way organizations approach capture enhances business processes, rather than obstructs or impedes their function.

This article offers four key elements to consider when determining your capture methodology:

  • Match the access, process, security and compliance needs of your organization to your capture process.
  • Map business critical processes in the enterprise to investigate places where content can be captured earlier and transmitted directly to important processes.
  • Audit your inbound content and the way that content is handled, and review how classification or automated capture tools can feed downstream processes in order to improve productivity and speed up response.
  • Review the performance of your existing capture technology and methodology, and analyze whether a new model or new technology is needed to increase efficiency and ROI.
