AIIM Europe, the Enterprise Content Management (ECM) association, has announced post-show survey results following the AIIM Roadshow, which visited five UK cities last month. Visitor survey results indicate that overall planned investment in ECM technologies is holding steady despite falling cost-per-seat. Whilst 19% of respondents indicated that their organisation has an anticipated total spend in the next 12 months of over £200,000, the anticipated spend of 8% of respondents is in excess of £1m. A further 41% have budgets between £10,000 and £200,000. These figures match last year’s survey results to within one or two percent.

AIIM President John Mancini, who presented the keynote at the AIIM Roadshow, comments, “These numbers demonstrate that falling per-seat prices are allowing organisations to increase coverage of their ECM systems rather than reduce project budgets. It reflects the trend for ECM to become part of the IT infrastructure across the whole enterprise.”

Document management, records management and forms capture remain the products of most interest to attendees, followed by email management and workflow. The associated technologies of collaboration, Web content management, invoice processing, digital mailroom and enterprise search were all on the shopping list of at least one in five visitors to the show, which attracted over 1,100 visitors across the five days.

The 2008 AIIM Roadshow will visit: Glasgow: April 28th, Bolton: April 29th, Coventry: May 1st, Bristol: May 2nd and London: May 3rd.
