GODALMING, England, September 30, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Enterprise Content Management (ECM) ( http://www.thecontentgroup.co.uk/Invoice_Capture.aspx) specialist - The Content Group http://www.thecontentgroup.co.uk - is releasing a White Paper on document workflow (http://www.thecontentgroup.co.uk/Invoice_Capture.aspx_ and invoice processing (http://www.thecontentgroup.co.uk/Invoice_Capture.aspx ) that advises the Construction industry of the threats inherent in poor information management. In an industry overwhelmed with massive quantities of information and poor data management processes, the paper identifies the current issues construction companies face and looks at how organisations can reduce the damage caused to building projects by implementing a robust ECM solution in-house.

For a majority of construction companies, the administrative overhead associated with every aspect of the construction process, from planning, day-to-day project management, building regulations and health and safety, remains heavily reliant upon manual processes and huge quantities of paper.

The Content Group's White Paper on document workflow and invoice processing - Cutting Fixed Costs to Build a Better Business - discusses how in previous years, most companies simply had neither the time nor the incentive to consider opportunities for streamlining processes and reducing administrative costs. In light of the recent state of the economy however, it is now essential for the industry to get its house in order.

Andrew Mais, Solutions Specialist at The Content Group, comments With a growing stakeholder demand for cost reduction and risk management, it is the construction companies that embrace ECM and improve internal processes who will be best placed to ramp up quickly as the good times return.

Construction organisations cannot continue to ignore the potential risks of project overrun penalties, the risk of personal injury litigation or, simply, the huge administrative costs associated with the manual management of contracts, drawings, health safety information in emails, paper documents and digital media.
