Enterprise Information Management
Information is the lifeblood of any organization – whether in physical or electronic form. EIM strategies are a necessity derived from the evolution of traditional information management practices - information proliferation is occurring – and continues to occur – at an exponential rate of growth. EIM enables businesses to capture, store and secure, and manage their information across the diverse organizational departments, current/legacy systems, a complex labyrinth of legislation, regulation, electronic evidence standards and corporate policy, along with addressing effective operational and customer experience change management.
EIM solutions deliver business value to core business by reducing risk, lowering costs, streamlining workflows, and increasing the quality and precision of information. ARC can assist in designing and building a cohesive information management strategy that leverages existing assets, meets urgent needs and establishes a fast-path to the future. We believe that good information strategy is good business strategy, and central to this goal is Information Governance.
ARC also specializes in Microsoft Productivity Solutions including Office 365, SharePoint and Microsoft Teams. We have a cross-section of roles including Project Managers, Business Analysts and Developers that can deliver true business value.
EIM seldom is a formulaic approach, and an EIM Roadmap is no exception. ARC’s professionals bring a unique combination of people and organizational change management, technical expertise in market-leading tools, Information Governance (IG) and Information Management (IM) best-practices, coupled with domain experience across many industries, and awareness of legislation, regulation and sensitivity to organizational policy related to information standards (e.g., ISO15489, GARP).
ARC’s professionals help enable a fast-path to enhanced information management through a simple and consistent methodology – looking at aspects such as policies and standards, current state assessments (operational and technical health), risks/issues and gap analyses, document and records management strategies (physical and electronic records), retention schedules, security frameworks, compliance auditing, and assessing appetite for change – all towards charting a practical, achievable and cost-effective IM Program Roadmap.

The core of our EIM solutions includes process mapping, configuration and development, metadata definition, audit services and overall project management.
Office 365 and SharePoint implementation and upgrade projects commonly have elements of integration points with several enterprise applications to interact seamlessly together. ARC’s strong background of system delivery can certainly add value to your investment with Microsoft.
Often the fastest ROI in EIM, capture solutions transform and connect your documents by drastically reducing manual processes - ARC’s capture solutions lower costs, minimize risk, and streamline integration to other systems. Process-driven capture enables business to input a variety of incoming formats (paper, electronic, xml, etc.) from both inside and outside the organization – in a reliable and auditable way, ensuring compliance and enhanced search/find of information in downstream processing.
Consider leveraging advanced recognition to reduce manual paper handling steps and processing errors, and improving data accuracy and acceleration of business processes. Advanced recognition delivers capabilities to automatically classify documents into unique business transactions and then extract the index data required for validation (to other systems such as AR/AP) to automatically streamline and complete the business process.
