Tim Nissen | 2018 Hurricane Season Preparation to Secure Business Documentation Assuring Business Continuity.

IntelliChief, LLC, a provider of automated document management and workflow enterprise content management (ECM) solutions, notifies companies of 2018 hurricane season preparation to secure business documentation assuring business continuity, to including ECM as part of their business continuity planning, in light of 2018’s hurricane season, spanning June 1 – November 30.

According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) statement, 12 named storms, including seven hurricanes, with three of them being Category 3 or higher are expected this year.

With IntelliChief’s offices located in Florida and Massachusetts, the company’s first-hand ECM usage is firmly in-place encompassing the protection of critical strategic and daily-operational information, spanning both hurricane and winter storm seasons.

Though all organizations experience fiscal losses with temporary business continuity interruptions, the U.S. National Archives & Records Administration states that 60 percent of companies that lose their data are out of business within six months of a disaster. With paper documentation in file drawers and on warehouse racks throughout organizations being vulnerable to wind, water and fire, it’s the business-dependent information contained in this format that forms the foundational loss in a disaster. This problem is easily eliminated through ECM’s ability to automate both paper capture and electronic file information capture and digital conversion for secure storage, with interdepartmental process workflow benefits provided through mobile access. ECM is the information protection cornerstone of a disaster recovery and business continuity plan for an organization, complementing colocation.

IntelliChief ECM provides a smooth, automated transition from costly manual document management and workflow functions. Its industry-awarded automated capture, validation, database update and real-time analytic visibility enables users to capture documentation in any format, index contents and validate with data in their enterprise resource planning system (ERP) and line of business applications. It lifecycle-manages all related documentation, facilitates optimized interdepartmental processes workflow automation and cash flow optimization.

Areas of use include Accounting (both Accounts Payable and Accounts Receivable), Finance, Purchasing, Customer Service, Human Resources, IT Legal, Logistics/Distribution, Operations and other paper and process-intensive departments, supporting time and cost savings throughout organizations.
