Training on Enterprise Content Management begins for staff of the Court

Fifty staff of the ECOWAS Court on Monday 6 December 2021, began a three day training on the Enterprise Content Management (ECM), a set of processes and technologies for the collection, management and sharing of information.

The ECM extends the concept of content management, a computer-enabled information storage and retrieval system, to dedicated timelines and provides a secure repository for managing contents in either analog or digital format.

The training, which is being held in Nasarawa State, near Abuja, is part of the capacity building of the Court aimed at improving efficiency through the integration of content management into their duties for improved planning and efficiency.

The Head of Administration and Human Resources of the Court, Mr Gnamou Siratoulahi, said in his opening speech that the ECM is intended to digitalize work processes and culminate in a paperless system with global accessibility to the information as the ultimate goal.  

He said the Court was expecting immediate results through increased efficiency and productivity of processes; simplification of business operations, enforcement of organisational structures. 

He noted that financial, material, intellectual and time resources are expected to be saved with the implementation of the ECM.  

He urged participants to use the opportunity to update their knowledge of the ECM processes as it relates to their specific tasks as this will contribute to ensuring a seamless workflow and improve efficiency.

Participants  are drawn from the different departments and divisions of the Court and being trained by the Head of the Registry and Central Archiving at the ECOWAS Commission, Mr Alozie Callystus Agomuo with the support of Mr Ibrahim Sofo, an IT Assistant at the Commission.
