In KMWorld’s recently released ECM Best Practices report, Systemware’s Director of Solutions Delivery, Sean Furrh, outlined 5 Essentials for a Modern Content Services Platform to manage your organization’s valuable information assets. In this blog, we will take a deeper dive into the first essential – A Robust User Experience. 

User engagement has become an immediate priority for any kind of technology, and providing a great user experience is one of the most important things you can do for your business – in fact, a compelling UX can be the difference between a sale and a loss. 

What Makes for a Great User Experience? 

Today’s modern content services platform must be designed with the user in mind. Mobility and ‘instant access’ capabilities are continuously raising user expectations. Paired with the growing needs of the 24-hour, 7 days a week, increasingly global workforce and need for secure access and speed, designing a comprehensive yet streamlined UX seems like a lofty (or virtually impossible) goal. Users want systems that work the way they do–processes that are simple, systems that are secure, and speed that delivers a seamless experience free from interruptions to their daily lives and flow of business. Systems must be nimble, flexible, secure, and accessible. 

Empowering Users: Automation and the All-in-One Platform

Organizations must empower users and accelerate business processes by offering improved content workflows. Automation and repeatability are replacing outdated ECM systems by streamlining workflows and improving efficiency. Freed from the mundane tasks which slow systems and impede the user experience, organizations are looking to move toward all-in-one platforms designed for usability and personalized choices. Users should be able to quickly find specific information contained within their repositories. Solutions providing open API’s help organizations develop applications with easy integrations and extensions to deliver a tailored, user-centric experience. 

In the end, all of the systems, processes, hardware, and software share one purpose: to better connect people with content. As a Content Services provider, we are in a unique position to take advantage of this and reinvent the way users interact with enterprise information.
