Enterprise Content Management

Organizations today are facing multiple challenges when it comes to the ever-growing complexity within the existing application infrastructure and the availability of business relevant information that is stored in different systems. Enterprise Content Management (ECM) solutions help you manage these unstructured information and content thereby facilitating a company-wide standardization in terms of the accessibility of information and application management- capture, manage, store, preserve, and deliver information and documents related to organizational processes.

Over the last several years organizations have also created a huge volume of unstructured content that includes documents, e-mail messages, videos, instant messages, Web pages, and more. This content often exists in a state that prevents an organization from properly using these valuable assets for better knowledge sharing, improved customer communications, and increased process efficiency.

Manage diverse content

The document management capabilities in ECM can help organizations consolidate diverse content from multiple file shares and personal drives into a centrally managed repository with consistent categorization.

Satisfy compliance and legal requirements

ECM incorporates records management capabilities that give organizations the capability to store and protect business records from creation to their final state.

Streamline business processes

ECM encompasses document centric processes under Business Process Management or workflow, enabling businesses to streamline content-driven, collaborative business processes by providing the tools and platform for automating the tasks of these processes.

GSR has built custom Enterprise Content Management (ECM) solutions based on the Microsoft Platform for companies in industries including Life Sciences, Retail, Financial Services, and High Tech Manufacturing, and can help overcome these challenges.

Collaboration

Why is collaboration so compelling now? Employees want to work anywhere, anytime and on any device. The sweeping adoption of social media is driving higher expectations for technology in the workplace and changing the dynamic between companies and their customers.

Business success increasingly depends on companies having collaborative resources that enable employees to share business critical information and work together in real time.

GSR can help your company open doors and increase productivity with a business portal and collaboration solution that is cost-effective, integrated, and scalable. This would enable employees to share information more efficiently across your enterprise, as well as with customers.

Eliminate barriers to team productivity.

When companies work like a network, they can improve collaboration inside and outside of the organization, adapt more quickly to change, and drive more effective results—together.

SharePoint Business Intelligence

Unlike other solutions, SharePoint provides the most integrated, accessible, and user friendly BI Solution on the market today. Insights in SharePoint is enabled through a number of robust offerings, including Microsoft Excel, Excel Services, SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS), Performance Point Services, and Power BI.

Publishing to the Web using data from various line-of-business applications is historically a complex task. By using the new features available in SharePoint Server , we can help assemble data from multiple sources and build links to your business applications, such as SAP, Siebel, Sales force and Microsoft SQL Server (SSAS, SSRS, SSIS), allowing you to easily publish dashboards, reports, scorecards, lists, and key performance indicators (KPIs), all on your corporate portal.

  • SharePoint provides Performance Point, Power BI, Excel, Visio and other services to build effective dashboards and to visualize business processes.
  • Microsoft Power Pivot for Excel and SharePoint allow users to analyze large data sets and create visually powerful models and dashboards.

Rapidly Respond to Business Needs:

  • SharePoint gives you the best of both worlds: out-of-the-box applications and a platform for customized solutions. You can use the features of SharePoint just as they are or quickly create secure and easy-to-use solutions for specific business needs.

Employee Self Service on SharePoint

The application is designed to make employees more self-sufficient, automate process flow, and shorten cycle times.The result, employees spend more time focusing on their job, management has greater visibility and overall organization productivity is enhanced.

Additionally, internal service department staff (HR, IT, and Admin) call and email load is reduced due to service request automation.

Rather having to request services using time consuming phone calls and emails, employees can make internal requests for service in a single place.

A centralized service request feature allows employees to submit service requests to departments such as HR, IT, Accounting or any department using the Department Template.

Service or help desk requests are routed to the responsible department, and the employee is kept current on request status through the portal and email notifications.

The requests are tracked and managed in each department, saving both the employee (not having to follow-up) and department staff time.
Also, putting in place this structure provides internal operations management (CFO, GM or COO) with an overall picture of internal services productivity.
