ARX, Documentaal, Epona and ETTU have formed a strategic partnership to provide business organizations in the Netherlands with an end-to-end digital platform. The solution, which has a fixed monthly price per user, provides enterprises with a comprehensive application that can be seamlessly integrated with Microsoft Office, SharePoint, and CoSign digital signatures.
Each of the partners offers a leading digital application that is deployed in many enterprises across the world:
• ARX delivers CoSign, the strongest digital signature solution for the secure and compliant signing of documents and email messages;
• Documentaal provides an application for document creation and formatting;
• Epona enables integration of DMSforLegal with Microsoft Office (Outlook) and SharePoint;
• ETTU supplies eConnect, a solution for document management and collaboration in SharePoint.
The joint integration of these key applications enables organizations to improve efficiency, accelerate processes and reduce costs. The information is always stored in SharePoint, regardless of whether the project is initiated in Word, Outlook or another application. This feature is of particular interest for organizations that work with many different types of applications and file types, such as accountants and notaries, law firms, legal departments and housing associations.
“These days, information is increasingly transmitted and stored in digital format, but storage is often fragmented and assigned to different systems such as document management solutions, local hard disks or personal mailboxes. The new synergy between ARX, Documentaal, Epona and ETTU enables organizations to quickly move to using a single, integrated environment that can handle all information sources and locations, at an affordable monthly per-user price,” says Vincent Heijckmann, Co-owner of ETTU.
Raynald Wouters, partner at Documentaal, adds: “Many enterprises are transitioning to automated workflows, project management systems and CRMs. The common philosophy shared by all four partners is that any such solution must make work processes easier and faster while meeting each user’s specific needs. After receiving positive feedback from our customers, we have merged our offerings in order to provide an even better user experience.”
Marjan Hermkes, Legal Director at Epona, notes: “By establishing this collaboration, we can pool our expertise in order to better respond to market demands for SharePoint-based solutions. This joint offering is ideal for business organizations seeking to deploy technologically advanced solutions.”
John Lageman, Regional Director at Benelux ARX, believes that the fully digital enterprise is inevitable. “The collaboration between ARX, Documentaal, Epona and ETTU has yielded a powerful integrated solution that comprehensively manages digital information and controls work processes. Digital signatures cover the last mile by eliminating the need to print and distribute paper documents solely to collect signatures.”
On Wednesday, December 17, 2014 ARX, Documentaal, Epona and ETTU will conduct a joint seminar: “Digital Environment for Professionals” at Microsoft Netherlands in Schiphol. Participants will have the opportunity to learn more about the capabilities of the Digital Workplace for Professionals and view a live demonstration. Register here for the seminar.
