Content Management

Developing an ECM Strategic Plan for an organization or department may sound like a daunting task, but it’s a relatively straightforward undertaking that follows a proven process.
In fact, it’s usually quite rewarding since most organizations and departments have many areas in which they can benefit from thought leadership to align their content practices to better support the organizational objective.

Locus will guide your team in defining your content management needs, solution value, and organizational priorities. The strategic plan follows a staged approach incrementally uncovering components leading to a measurable outcome that meets your objectives.  The process takes into consideration; internal analysis or work product that has already been completed, corporate and governance standards, team knowledge, corporate priorities, and specific requirements of the organization.  The resulting deliverable is an organizational ECM Strategic Roadmap that will outline the timeline and key milestones that are based on your assessment of risk, benefit, value, and scope.

SAP Extended Enterprise Content Management

SAP Extended enterprise content management (xECM) is a complete, enterprise-grade ECM solution that is optimized and integrated with SAP.

Unstructured content of any sort can be managed throughout its lifecycle, and more importantly, associated with any SAP transaction.

SAP and non-SAP users can now collaborate in a common environment, improving process efficiency through the integration of documents and SAP transactions providing a 360 degree view across the organization.

Many organizations see an immediate ROI by automating the association of unstructured content with the SAP transaction which drastically reduces the time it takes users to find content, as well as errors in locating the correct content that are typical in an environment that hasn’t been integrated.

Records Management & Information Governance

OpenText has one of the most comprehensive and sophisticated records management modules in the industry which allows your organization to implement technological controls to meet your information governance objectives. From physical paper or boxes in a warehouse to SAP transactions and content, Locus has the experience and skills required to leverage the technologies and move towards a paperless environment.

Locus begins with a records readiness assessment to review the objectives and governance framework that has previously been created to develop an alignment strategy. The outcome of a records management roadmap will outline the implementation plan to meet the objectives – in most cases, this is a staged/gated project that allows your organization to see the benefits of the implementation quickly.

Reducing file system volumes by applying compression and de-duplicating redundant documents, time-savings associated with having a single source for internal searching and repurposing of content, discovery, as well as audit and compliance are just a few of the benefits realized.
