Building a structured taxonomy is critical for designing a well-oiled ECM solution, which is why we consulted the experts at KnowledgeLake to deliver one of the most important tips when building out your taxonomy structure.
If You Build It, They Will Come
We all tend to groan at overplayed clichés, but we all know that usually that’s because they ring true. When it comes with the famous saying from Field of Dreams, “If you build it, he will come”, it’s absolutely correct when applied to taxonomies. Our job, as ECM experts is to create a system that’s easy to use for employees old and new.
That’s why a well-built, simple structure designed with a good strategy behind it is the best tool an organization can have. Not only does it empower employees to do their job more efficiently, it also creates a streamlined workflow as it is adopted by more users—a big win for any business deploying an ECM solution. Imagine, an office where any document can be uploaded, found and viewed within minutes. When you have a well-built taxonomy for your ECM solution, that vision will become a reality.
