Transform paper and digital content into application-ready information

What is a business content management system?

A business content management system helps manage, organize and pull information that is accessible to the broader organization via an application or as an extension to an existing application. It increases productivity and simplifies workflows with business content services that store and retrieve data from one centralized system.
