Enterprise Document Assessment Methodology

EDAM Overview

Enterprise Document Assessment Methodology

EDAM helps organizations rapidly scope and identity the extent of print and document management costs throughout their enterprise. EDAM delivers a predictive model of fully burdened document system costs, and indicates specific areas of document waste, and opportunities to capitalize on potential savings.

Strength in Numbers: Metrics and Algorithms of EDAM

EDAM is comprised of three fundamental components: Econometrics (labor statistics, market trends, technological innovation and industry segmentation), Documetrics (holistic system mapping of document activity and cost chains across office, commercial, and production business processes), and Comprehensive Research (annual analysis of over 5,000+ global accounts). These components are processed through EDAM's refined metrics and algorithms to depict a detailed and dynamic view of any organization's entire document system. This approach delivers an ideal business case for discussion at the executive level.
