End-to-end Open Source ECM: WeWebU & Ephesoft Announce Global Technology Partnership

Press release from: WeWebU Software AG

Herzogenaurach, Germany / Irvine, CA, USA – March 28, 2012. WeWebU Software AG, the maker of OpenWorkdesk, and Ephesoft Inc., the leader in providing advanced open source cloud-ready capture solutions, today announced their global technology partnership. Jointly, they will offer the first end-to-end solution for transactional Enterprise Content Management (ECM) entirely based on open source software.

Ephesoft provides the technologically leading document capture platform for creating intelligent mailroom automation solutions. It can process any type of document coming to an enterprise by automatically tracking, scanning, classifying, separating, sorting and extracting data from documents in paper, fax and electronic formats. The WeWebU OpenWorkdesk product suite on its part provides end users with ergonomic business applications for eFile and case management that are adopted specifically by configuration rather than coding.

Stefan Waldhauser, CEO of WeWebU, explains: „When you combine the solution we offer in cooperation with Ephesoft with an ECM repository from our mutual technology partner Alfresco, you get the world’s first end-to-end solution for transactional ECM entirely based on open source software. Hence, it is the first real alternative to proprietary platforms. The enterprise software market – especially for public administration and more and more for banks and insurances – is definitely ready for innovative and at the same time cost-reducing open source solutions. We are happy that we are able to offer the leading solution for this rapidly growing market together with Alfresco and Ephesoft.”

Both, WeWebU and Ephesoft, use the open standards CMIS and BPML. Their joint solution is purely web-based, runs on the ECM platforms of Alfresco and IBM as well as on any CMIS-compliant ECM repository and can be used in the cloud as well as on-premise. It is the perfect match for banks, insurance companies and public administration agencies that have decided to use open standards and open source software. Customers can avoid dependency on a proprietary software stack on the one hand and also avoid complex and costly in-house development on the other. The cutting-edge open source ECM solution of Ephesoft and WeWebU comes without any upfront license fees and offers options for 24x7 enterprise-level support. That saves up to 90% of the costs of common proprietary solutions.

Don Field, CEO Ephesoft states: „Ephesoft is designed to revolutionize the intelligent document capture industry. Within only two years, Ephesoft has become an established player in the market for intelligent document capture and mailroom automation. We have won great reference customers and many system integrators for our open source solutions. WeWebU OpenWorkdesk complements them perfectly. Together with WeWebU we now work with a powerful joint partner network consisting of more than 60 resellers and systems integrators in approximately 20 countries. We have already begun a joint marketing awareness campaign to demonstrate our partnership in all important markets both in the Americas and Europe.”
