Avoid Employee Fraud, And The Associated Issue Of Error

June 2016 – In an article EASY published last month in key technology and financial services title FSTech, EASY’s Director of Sales and Marketing at the firm’s UK offices discusses the next step in ECM’s evolution in his view: the integration of ECM and DM.

The article charts how, despite technology progress in many areas in business and having Document Management (DM) or Enterprise Content Management (ECM) solutions in place for years, many businesses still haven’t integrated the to their financial systems and ERP, and so just aren’t reaping the greatest benefit out of their investment.

As Howard writes, “What’s peculiar about this picture is that it’s in Finance that DM usually starts to be adopted, which is the same place the organisation’s finance engine and ERP sits. But somehow, CFOs and their teams aren’t making the mental connection.”

That should act as a wake-up call to the whole DM community, he warns: “We started our journey in Finance. Let’s go back there, and use that basis as the jumping-off point for the next fantastic phase of e-business.”

Two Great International Major Firms Giving EASY The Thumbs Up

Bury St Edmonds, UK — 9 February 2016 — STFA Construction Group is a very successful large Turkish company providing services in the construction, natural gas distribution, construction equipment and construction chemicals sectors — and it’s just gone on record to endorse the EASY ECM suite.

The firm says the software is driving better document workflow processes across all of its business units, inputting the right data from EASY into all of its SAP-run contract, personnel, risk, health and security and construction project management activities.

Timucin Erdogu, the IT Director at STFA Construction Group talks to EASY SOFTWARE UK

In the words of its IT Director, Timucin Erdogu, “EASY does SAP integration very well, is a very flexible product and allows us to meet all our requirements. We are very satisfied, as EASY is a customer friendly and very flexible application. I can only recommend EASY to any enterprise!”

Erdogu and his team say that EASY was only chosen after an extensive evaluation process, with around 30 leading products being evaluated, leading to a final short list of four, of which EASY and one last competitor.

EASY secured the contract by passing a tough final test Erdogu set for the bid team — a live demo, during which he changed the scenario to really test its flexibility.

“Only EASY could manage the change, which is why we’re working with it now,” he explains.

In another great example of customer success, but on the other side of the world, CasaLuker, Colombia’s best known coco and coffee manufacturer, says it’s using EASY in another powerful combination with SAP — in this case, it’s market-leading analytics platform, Hana.

In this case, EASY’s EIM solution for SAP, implemented in under a month, is powering the firm’s fully digital end-to-end procurement process, eliminating paper-driven approval processes and starting to derive fully actionable BI (business intelligence).

“Previously, we had a big problem with handling documents and papers, especially in the area of supply chain management,” admits its Director of Technology, Gerson Granados.

“One of the biggest challenge with implementing information systems is to find project that deliver results quickly. With EASY, we found a company that promises to deliver a complete EIM solution in less than a month.”

Granados says the idea of implementing an entire SAP-integrated EIM system remotely sounded “strange” at first, but that EASY’s cloud power made the transition into a success.

Granados contrasts the old with the new: “At one time, we had more than 150 people manually approving the entire procurement process. Now SAP’s working with EASY, we have an electronic, 100% paper-free process. We can confirm the EASY solution is giving us a transparent, end-to-end, procurement process.”

EASY’s Coverage In Document Manager Magazine: The Whys And Wherefores Of A Move To Outsource Document Management

December 22nd, 2015 – EASY SOFTWARE UK’s Managing Director has received prominent coverage for his views on outsourcing DM and how it is not a straightforward matter, by any means.

Howard says that outsourcing DM used to involve third-party scanning specialists for documents in bulk, trundling off with all your files in a big van – then re-appearing at an indeterminate later time to hand you back a bunch of compact discs with a basic search facililty.

These days, he points out, outsourced DM has evolved considerably, and is now far more flexible and sophisticated in the way it’s able to help you handle data.

In particular, cloud means we can handle much larger volumes – meaning outsourcing can happen at a much greater scale, and with far more functional and flexible and tailorable service level agreement options.

So, forget that CD, he says in his article in respected publication Document Manager. Now staff can access the corporate memory banks from the other side of the world in an instant, off their smartphone.

According to Howard, DM outsourcing is great – however it’s always important to evaluate all the factors in order to get maximum business advantage.

The lesson he is careful to draw is that managers need to take DM or ECM outsourcing very seriously, as it’s a potentially risky commitment.

He concludes that while there are enormous benefits and we’re a long way from the van and the CD, but working with cloud like this needs to be managed carefully.
