Enterprise Report Management

Enterprise Report Management (ERM) evolved from COLD (Computer Output to Laser Disk) which uses magnetic or optical disk devices for storage. Essentially, the two have become synonymous for the process of converting bulk mainframe or software application data electronic document format and automatically indexing the data for searching and retrieval.

If your organization produces large numbers of computer-generated documents, such as invoices or reports, then you know the high cost of storing and accessing those documents-not to mention the extra time spent retrieving them. ERM captures data from your mainframe or software application and saves it automatically. Users can work with the data in electronic document format right from their PCs. They can print, search, view, archive, copy, email, annotate, and more. No third-party integration is required.
