Document Management in Local Government
Finding the real savings
Local Government organisations face the challenge of reduced budgets and the simultaneous pressure to change the way services are delivered. Investing in information assets can achieve cost savings as well as enabling a more flexible organisation, which is ready to embrace new ways of working, shared services and outsourcing. A fresh look at the benefits that Electronic Document and Records Management (EDRM) systems can deliver is therefore required.
Local authority document management requirements are wide and varied. A well-structured, benefits focussed Electronic Document and Records Management (EDRM) Programme offers a route to delivering part of the savings that all local authorities are under pressure to deliver.
This document discusses the benefits and what to consider when looking to develop an EDRM programme.
