Gartner has re-interpreted content and document management in recent years. The early days of document management focused on reducing paper and physical storage space. As document management and electronic document management evolved, we saw the introduction of workflow automation. For senior executives and management teams up-to-date information is essential to decision making, so business intelligence (BI) dashboards measuring a range of business functions have become a valuable extension of document management.
Document management category names have changed too. What Gartner used to refer to as Enterprise Content Management (ECM) encompassed document management, content management, records management and other variations. Today ECM is moving towards content services models.
Document Logistix brings innovative server-side functionality to businesses that does not compromise on the performance of comprehensive solutions typically delivered via rich client technology.
Document Logistix also gives decision makers a lot of flexibility with a choice of document management licensing models. Typical user licences (Read-only and Full licence) are not always cost effective, so Document Logistix offers named, concurrent and hybrid licensing options that are very popular with customers.

Senior executives have to select an organization-wide document information and content management system that works from information capture, data management, and records retention and deletion. Without a company-wide, centralized system, there are too many information silos and data gaps, which hamper productivity. A company-wide solution serves all the functions of the business, is integrated, and provides access, visibility and security.
