Learn how KnowledgeLake unclutters SharePoint to deliver a more robust, reliable, compliant and scalable ECM system.

Sometimes our staff would spend hours trying to find specific documents, which were scattered in folders in filing cabinets. With the KnowledgeLake ECM solution, an employee can simply search for specific keywords and pull up a document in a matter of seconds. It saves a huge amount of personnel time-time that can be put to better use than searching through filing cabinet drawers.
