Document Management

Documents like spreadsheets, presentations, proposals, contracts, video and scanned images are created faster than we can count them. In most organizations, this content lives all over the place, on desktop computers, consumer file hosting services such as Dropbox and Google docs, network drives, USBs and email. And your enterprise applications such as ERP, CRM and Supply Chain are generating an endless stream of operational, structured data either on-premise or in the Cloud.

Being able to organize, control and provide fast and secure access to this structured and unstructured data has become critical to the organization’s success. eBA’s simplified enterprise-grade document management system does exactly that. Key functionality includes version control, access control, notifications, approval workflows, embedded file viewer support, collaboration, and enterprise archiving.

Putting your content in context

Relate your unstructured data with structured data residing in your enterprise applications so you can find what you need and make smart decisions, fast.

Easily retrieve what is stored

Most organizations do not have a problem creating content. They have a problem finding it, sharing it and consuming it. eBA Document Management allows content to be easily accessed and delivered to the right people at the right time on the right device.

Control your content

With a central access point to information, not only can your users gain better insights and make smarter business decisions faster, but the organization can be more compliant with fast access to documents company-wide, visibility into who accessed and interacted with the data, and secure archiving of content in durable, unalterable form.

Workflow

eBA workflow automates and streamlines common business processes like contract or invoice approvals, PTO requests, storing data in a database, or assigning a task. eBA automatically monitors each step of the process, provides rules or triggers to determine what’s next and sends a notification when an action is required. eBA workflow ensures you stay productive and compliant. It integrates your people, systems, data and action.

eBA workflow is designed to allow business analysts to understand, build and change processes - without becoming developers. All businesses run on workflows - and many of them can be automated because they are either manual, time-consuming or inefficient. Most commercial software applications provide some ‘workflow’ because of the way you use that software to complete a task. eBA workflow doesn’t just participate in task completion - it manages the entire process of work by coordinating systems and people on one single platform with one code base and interface.

Increased productivity with faster forms, reviews and approvals

With eBA you can create forms for business applications faster and easier. Just drag and drop reusable components into place, use master data from various systems, and connect the form to a workflow. Boom!

Traditionally time-consuming processes such as contract or PO approvals are done faster and without error or ambiguity because eBA knows who is responsible for every task along the way, and when the task needs to be done. Notifications are sent automatically.

Process automation

Automated workflows drive action, provide consistency and give greater visibility by connecting your people with relevant action, data and systems.

Better governance

With eBA you can monitor not only the status of your current business processes in real-time, but also the impact of changes made to those processes overtime. Enabling you to quickly address performance, quality and compliance issues.

Capture

Processing paper-based documents continues to be an issue many organizations still struggle with, regardless of whether that paper is the byproduct of ongoing business processes or just legacy paper content. With eBA Capture you can ‘capture’, digitize and interpret any type of document from any location, be it paper, email, image, fax, or EDI and regardless of whether that content is coming from a desktop, your ERP or other line-of-business application.

eBA Capture provides you with a flexible set of tools to capture and image this content while applying metadata, applicable policies and schedules to it.

Reduced costs

Printing, shipping, storage and document handling costs are eliminated or reduced because process related data and documents can be digitized, classified and indexed and archived with eBA.

Increased productivity

By making all content easily accessible and searchable.

Improved customer service

By ensuring your employees have up-to-date, accurate information right at their fingertips.

Records Management

eBA Records Management allows the organization to comply with external regulations and internal policies by managing and automating the retention and removal of content.

Be in full control of your documents the moment they enter into eBA with an un-editable data trail and automatic destruction options. eBA will also ensure your sensitive content will not be deleted until its official retention period has expired.

Minimize risk and ensure regulatory compliance

By providing a structured and transparent way to maintain records from creation through to eventual destruction.

Lower operating expenses

Reduce expenses by saving storage space and eliminating manual retention practices.

Application Integration

eBA lets you easily integrate with other business applications within hours, not weeks or months. It enables users to be more efficient by automatically filling out forms, launching workflows, and dynamically composing documents such as proposals, offer letters, contracts and policies.

Synchronization

eBA API synchronizes data real-time behind the scenes. Data stored within eBA is related to transactions and data in your other systems. Integration enables your systems to remain in sync, real-time, with two-way data exchange. Duplicate data entry is eliminated and data is consistent regardless of what system the user looks in, enabling consistent and faster decisions.

Time savings

Simple application integration eliminates the need to switch between screens to find the right information and eliminates error from manual data entry.
