  • Overview

    Convert Slow to Agile

    Take slow, old, paper-oriented processes and convert them into agile software-age workflows. Legacy and unoptimized processes cost organization more than just time and money, it makes you less competitive. Agilely model, track, and manage these processes to make your documents into tangible, valuable assets.

    Unify Workflows from Collaboration to Distribution

    Bring users together and allow them to work productively in secure collaborative spaces. Optimize the way they work, record decisions and process steps with their output vs. a spreadsheet or worse email, and distribute this work to all interested parties including employees, customers and partners.

    Manage Content, Not Files

    Document management is moving from digital paper to business defined documents. Go from simply sharing files to a highly flexible content model that allows document definitions ranging from a single file to a complex multi-file model and included built-in metadata standards, relationships and secure workflows.

    Use Living Content

    Don’t just store or archive your files, bring valuable content to your users right when they need it. Applications need to interact with content that gets the most value out of Live content requires instant response times and amazing scalability.
