Last week Softdocs, a privately-held software developer based in Columbia, SC, and Source4, an integrated business and marketing solutions provider based in Huntersville, NC, entered into a formal partnership to better serve customers across the Higher Education marketplace.
Driving the decision was Source4’s interest in providing a complete enterprise content management suite to their 250+ Higher Education customers.
Jim Constantin, Source4’s executive business developer, stated “In the past year I have become more and more convinced that our customers need an integrated enterprise content management and workflow solution. By partnering with Softdocs, our customers will gain access to an established product with a great track record across the education marketplace.”
Lew Love, a Vice President at Softdocs, went on to state, “Source4 and Softdocs have always had a special relationship. This relationship was built on trust and respect for one another, as well as feature and function-rich products and being fair and honest to prospective customers in the heat of competitive battles. We look forward to going from competitors to partners – and all the great things that will come.”
Both Love and Constantin went on to discuss how this new partnership will help the 400+ mutual Higher Education customers running Ellucian’s Colleague and Banner ERP solutions. According to Love, “the technical landscape of Ellucian products is changing and Softdocs has committed to follow Ellucian’s technology path for the long-term.”
Constantin reinforced this statement by saying, “Source4 has over 250 Higher Education clients who have enjoyed our document creation and output solution for many years. We have received significant business from our clients and feel we have an obligation to bring them solutions that best meet their needs. By partnering with Softdocs we can offer our clients a document management solution that extends from document creation, to output, imaging, workflow, e-forms and archiving.”
Customers of Source4 will continue receiving support for Source4 products from Source4 and will have the opportunity to migrate toward offerings developed and supported by Softdocs.
