Hummingbird And STG, Inc. To Present Network-Based Electronic Records Management At FOSE 2002
Toronto - March 18, 2002-- Hummingbird Ltd. (NASDAQ: HUMC, TSE: HUM), a world-leading enterprise software solutions company, and STG, Inc., a premier information technology services firm, today announced that Hummingbird and STG will be showing their latest records management solutions live at the Hummingbird booth at FOSE (www.fose.com), March 19-21, at the Washington, DC Convention Center.
Maximizing the value of the content of email and other stored documents is not only a formidable task, but also an unavoidable requirement, particularly for transactions covered under the Government Paperwork Elimination Act (GPEA). Hummingbird and STG have formed a partnership that leverages Hummingbird's software expertise and STG's consulting experience to deliver a reliable solution for managing and leveraging this email and document content by reducing training and human resource costs.
STG uses the power of Hummingbird's knowledge management, document management and records management technologies in combination with STG's ERM Server to intelligently auto-file email and other documents at the network level. This eliminates the need for desktop software installation and end-user training, and poses no additional workload requirements from end-users. Hummingbird is the only vendor that offers a fully integrated document management and records management solution.
"The traditional approach to records management often requires a lot of end-user training and software installation to every desktop. It leaves it up to the individual to decide how, what, and where to categorize an organization's digital assets, and gives the organization the headache and expense of training and delivery," says Don Schewe, a long time Certified Records Manager and the expert consultant for STG. "I believe that STG and Hummingbird have created a viable and innovative solution to this daunting problem."
"Hummingbird's tightly integrated document and records management solutions offer the lowest cost of ownership and ease of deployment in the industry," said Andrew Pery, chief marketing officer, Hummingbird Ltd. "Hummingbird's partnership with STG delivers value to customers by giving them the ability to maximize their ROI from Hummingbird products."
