Dicom International and KnowledgeLake sign EMEA partnership agreement
EDM VAD Dicom International has signed a partnership agreement with US-based KnowledgeLake. As part of the agreement, more than 3000 Dicom sales partners in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (through its offices in Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Middle East, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom) will receive access to the KnowledgeLake document capture and imaging solutions for Microsoft SharePoint environments, which are already in use today by more than 2 million licensed users in 35 countries. KnowledgeLake offers an extensive portfolio of fully integrated Microsoft SharePoint capture and imaging products as well as industry-specific solutions enabling companies of all sizes to fully exploit the efficiency and cost-benefit advantages of SharePoint-based Enterprise Content Management platforms. KnowledgeLake products are easy to implement and administrate, and, by integrating their products into the Microsoft infrastructure that already exists in most companies, help provide a particularly affordable solution for managing documents and optimising document-based business processes. For Dicom, signing the distribution deal with KnowledgeLake is a strategically significant step towards the continued expansion of its product and solution portfolio. The independence and breakaway achieved by Dicom this past June from Kofax (with which Dicom still maintains close business relations as the main sales partner for Kofax Express und VirtualReScan) opened the door to additional document capture solution providers. This in turn opens up highly interesting new business fields and sales opportunities for Dicom's sales partners, which will continue to drive the strong growth currently underway in this segment.
