Have you ever asked yourself whether your organization’s ECM system is successful? Together with colleagues from University of Liechtenstein we have developed a tool that allows organizations to assess their ECM system success. In contrast to traditional measures, our tool particularly measures to what extent the ECM system supports efficiency, compliance and collaboration in organizations. More information about the study can be found at the www.ecm-success.org.
