Retail | Consumer

RetailRetail enterprises both large and small find themselves burdened with volumes of content – customer information, product schedules, and facility data - content that must be managed, organized, and accessible. Increasingly, managing paper data is becoming more of a challenge given new trends, media, competition, and customer demands requesting it.

Information Capture & Management

PaperFree offers an opportunity to turn this paper into useful, efficient information with enterprise information capture and management solutions.  These systems are the foundation on which successful business data management is built. From collaborating on business documents to delivering case-based applications to managing highly precise processes in most regulated business environments, the powerful workflow and management capabilities of these systems will organize all your business information and make it accessible in the fast world of retail.

Content management works by storing data in one central, streamlined repository while enabling users in all areas of your enterprise to access the information they need quickly. Customer files can be created and updated.  Product lines and their components can be managed.  Campaigns can be organized across distributed production staff.  Taxonomies and built-in workflows are also included to enhance the access of information by cross-linking information and allowing quick searches. Effective permission configurations keep information available to only those who are allowed to see it. And, it’s scalable and administration is simplified.
