LONDON – May 20, 2013 – Hyland Software, a recognised leader in the enterprise content management (ECM) industry, has announced that two solutions, OnBase Document Management and OnBase Active Policy Management, have been accepted onto the G-Cloud programme for cloud services. As a result, Hyland has now become an official Government Procurement Service (GPS) supplier.
Central government departments are now mandated to adopt a “G-Cloud First” approach to IT procurement, and the broader public sector is strongly recommended to do so. As the first ECM vendor to offer cloud solutions, Hyland is ideally placed to support this approach. It has been offering its OnBase Online cloud-based ECM solutions for more than a decade and is widely acknowledged as an expert in the area.
Cloud computing has brought about a step change in the economics and sustainability of Information and Communication Technology (ICT). The Government is committed to the adoption of cloud computing and delivering computing resources. The G-Cloud is an iterative programme of work to achieve this which will deliver fundamental changes in the way the public sector procures and operates ICT.
“Public sector organisations need to look for solutions that are flexible, intuitive and drive operational efficiencies,” says James Mayhew, Regional Manager, Hyland Software. “Our solutions help achieve these goals and promote the Government’s G-Cloud initiative and overall digital strategy by eliminating paper and creating paperless workflows. And they help improve government practices by making them more efficient, unified, accountable and transparent.”
“At the same time, we can offer in-depth expertise in the ECM market, backed by more than 20 years’ experience in the industry, and in selling into the government sector, where we have a total of more than 1,600 customers globally,” he added.
OnBase Document Management enables organisations to securely store and classify electronic documents, such as Microsoft Office documents, TIF images, PDFs or virtually any other type of content. The intuitive OnBase interface means that documents can be found easily and related documents automatically cross-referenced. A highly evolved security structure and full audit trail ensure that vital information can be secured and tracked, helping organisations meet compliance regulations.
OnBase Active Policy Management enables organisations to rapidly distribute required reading documents - such as Standard Operating Procedures, HR Policies, and Compliance Guidelines - to a selected audience (internal or external), and easily audit when documents have been read and acknowledged for legal, regulatory or educational purposes. Active Policy Management ensures that all recipients are provided with the correct versions of all required documents, and deadlines for document reviews and acknowledgements are enforced.
