ECM Solutions Seminar Educates Business and Government Professionals on Ways to Manage Critical Business Content, Documents, and Records

SILVER SPRING, MD -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 3, 2006 -- AIIM -- the Enterprise Content Management Association brings their free ECM Solutions Seminar to New York on March 8 and Washington, DC on March 15. Professionals from local businesses (in all industries), state, local, and federal government, education institutions, and non-profits are invited to attend this free educational event to learn how to better manage their business content, documents, and records.

"No matter the size of an organization, nor the industry, chances are you're inundated with information in the form of records, content, and documents. And it doesn't need to be in hard copy to create problems. Information drives our core business capabilities and yet it's an asset we frequently neglect," states John Mancini, president of AIIM. "Taking steps to manage paper, electronic, and web content can dramatically improve business performance, reduce costs and risk, streamline processes, and improve efficiencies."

Attendees will learn which data to you keep, for how long, and if it needs to comply with industry or government regulations. What is the best way to manage your organizations' email, web pages, and electronic documents? How do you find the right content when you need it? How do you create, and automate if possible, processes that enable your organization to increase efficiency?

Through industry research, moderated discussions, peer networking, and case study presentations, attendees will learn the Why?, What?, and How? of Enterprise Content Management.
