Softdocs’ Continued Expansion of Higher Education and K-12 Client Base Marked by ECM Migrations.
Softdocs announced YTD key milestones, confirming record growth for the company and for Etrieve, the company’s enterprise content management (ECM) platform.
But this expansion is unlike any other six-month period in Softdocs’ history in that it was fueled almost entirely by successful client migrations from competitive ECM systems including Hyland Software’s OnBase, Perceptive Content and NolijWeb solutions, the DocStar ECM solution, and solutions from other ECM providers. This momentum directly supports the company’s goal to be the premier Enterprise Content Management provider in the education market. Educational institutions are seeking cloud-based, mobile-friendly ECM solutions capable of easily integrating with key campus applications and licensing options that provide cost-effective scalability.
Over the last six months, Softdocs has introduced new ECM clients that span the entire United States, leveraging leading ERP solutions in higher education and K-12, and include both public and private education, representing a wide range of enrollments. Routinely targeting such diversity while growing their client base, Softdocs is strategically positioned with client input to grow offered products in response to the changing needs and challenges within education.
In addition, shifts in the market for print customization are also bringing migrations from existing print solutions to Softdocs’ Serve solution. The energy in the company is focused and measurable.
“Starting 2019 with so many migrations to Etrieve signals that the education market is eager to fully adapt business processes throughout every campus or district but in a cost-effective way and, for the vast majority, in the cloud,” said Laurel Stiller, vice president of marketing at Softdocs.
“Our clients are collaborating like never before, with each other and with us, to extend the value of their Etrieve deployments.”
“This momentum, along with a solid executive team and constant changes in the ECM and print customization markets have positioned our company to continue growing and exceeding education customer expectations. Each person in our company measures improvement by how we serve education. We are proud to have robust solutions in place, to not only help institutions satisfy their changing content management needs and challenges but also simplify their printing and delivery processes as well.”
YTD Company Milestones include:
- New Company Record for Highest Quarterly Revenue with Q2 Successes
- Over 87% of New Etrieve Customers Chose a Cloud-Based Deployment
- Named a Best Place to Work in South Carolina for Third Consecutive Year
- Added to the Eduventures 2019 Technology Landscape for Enterprise Content Management
One of many higher education institutions to have recently partnered with Softdocs, Nazareth College chose to implement Etrieve and introduce electronic forms and workflow into business processes. “Softdocs offers a robust solution with an intuitive user interface,” said Charles Ray, director of enterprise applications and data at Nazareth College. “We believe this is the type of tool where we can empower end users in new and sophisticated ways.”
A Sample of New Clients in 2019 includes:
- Eastern Washington University, Liberty University and University of Redlands representing strong Ellucian Banner and Ellucian Colleague clients and ECM migrations.
- The Academy for Classical Education, Dooly County Schools and Lee County Schools representing K-12 districts opting to deploy Etrieve in the cloud.
- McDaniel College, Naropa University and South Texas College of Law representing institutions choosing Serve by Softdocs to expand print customization and delivery functionality.
With Etrieve and Serve, Softdocs provides next-generation solutions for colleges, universities and K-12 districts looking to increase operational efficiencies and move away from legacy document management systems and processes. Offering seamless integration capabilities with other key software solutions on campus, Etrieve allows educational institutions to not only redefine business processes but also securely store, organize and access content campuswide.
In recognition of their efforts to expand deployment options and integration capabilities, Softdocs was named an Ellucian Partner of the Year in Customer First. The company was also recently added to the Eduventures 2019 Technology Landscape for Enterprise Content Management and recognized by SC Biz News as a Best Place to Work in South Carolina for the third consecutive year.
