Unstructured information – documents, emails, images, video, social media, and other content that lives outside the rows and columns of a database, constitutes 80% of all information. This information is undergoing unprecedented change as it becomes more mobile, social, and dispersed – all of which heightens risk and security concerns. As the volume of content continues to rise, organizations are struggling to manage it effectively.

Adjacent provides versatile and industry-specific ECM solutions that can help you access and manage content regardless of how it was created and where it resides. By streamlining and automating your processes, it helps you share information across departments and with customers. Our solutions provide everything you need to make quick, smart, and cost-effective decisions – right at the moment it matters the most.

Information growth is overwhelming, especially for governance processing and record retention. Traditional, manual programs and tools increase IT and legal costs while increasing the risk for non-compliance and information loss. As more information is generated in electronic form, the need for accountability and policy enforcement is becoming clearer to executives and managers.

Implementing an electronic records management plan requires a high degree of experience and expertise. Many organizations find they don’t have record management professionals and staff to carry out the many critical activities and responsibilities needed to setup electronic retention and disposition rules.

Adjacent Technologies has successfully implemented records management solutions for many different companies – in both public sectors and private industries – across a diverse number of industries. Our solutions utilize IBM’s Information Lifecycle Governance platform to help you increase accountability and the policy enforcement of your business records – all while driving down cost and risk.

IBM Enterprise Records:

  • Supports regulatory compliance. It features IBM ZeroClick technology, which automates the federation tool: a centralized, consolidated catalog of information from disparate content sources that provides company-wide records management.
  • Helps automate records capture and records administration. Gain cost-effective records management and rapid return on investment (ROI).
  • Supports the entire enterprise records lifecycle. Enterprise Records combines automation, reliability, and compliance for better records management.
  • Improves records retention and disposition. Obtain more efficient and accurate recordkeeping.

Adjacent can provide the expert services to help you streamline records-based activities and help enforce compliance with retention policies – with or without user participation. If you need a records management solution that benefits all corporate stakeholders – including IT, Legal, Records, as well as the business – Adjacent Technologies is the right IBM partner for you.

Fighting the increasing information and content invasion is a constant battle for any organization. Scanning existing paper records to reduce file cabinets and free up space has been a common practice for many years. But what about the hundreds and thousands of external paper documents and forms that arrive every day and slow down your active business processes? They bog down response times, restrict access, and make additional demands for re-keying, copying, and filing.

Adjacent helps organizations of all sizes automate and accelerate business processes by giving employees the ability to digitally capture all types of paper and electronic documents and forms, thus transforming them into accurate and actionable information. They are then delivered to core business applications, the ECM system, processes, and workflows. This enables content to be captured at the point it is generated.

Adjacent utilizes industry-leading software and capture platforms from IBM Datacap and Kofax to capture information from virtually any source – from scanners to multi-function printers, print streams, emails, faxes, web services,  and folders.

These highly capable capture systems reduce labor and paper costs, while delivering information for better, faster decision-making. This improves the responsiveness of your organization by allowing you to:

  • Maximize the Investment – Capture and automatically transform and extract data from a wide range of documents, including hard to process unstructured documents. This enables more effective and insightful decision-making across a larger number of critical, high-value business processes.
  • Speed Return on Investment – Build and deploy more document transformation projects faster with less upfront investment in order to maximize the return on your investment.
  • Increase Speed – Capture documents and information more quickly and accelerate business processes for speedier response times.
  • Maximize Productivity – Capture more documents and information with the same resources.
  • Reduce Cost – Reduce manual labor and headcounts previously required for manual document classification, separation, and data entry.
  • Improve Quality – Increase information quality and reduce exceptions in information-intensive business processes.

If you are unsure of where to begin or need some external guidance to kick-start paper-free processes, contact us today! Discover how Adjacent can help drive your information capture project to the next level.
