WESTBOROUGH, MA--(Marketwired - Jun 11, 2013) - etfile, premier workflow and content management solutions provider, announced today that Co-Founder and President Mark Linton has been named 2013 CIO of the Year in the Emerging Business category by Boston Business Journal and Mass High Tech.
The 3rd annual CIO of the Year Awards are given to those individuals who exemplify innovation in the use of information technology and in IT strategy. Linton was chosen as the top information technology executive -- from hundreds of applicants -- by a team of Boston Business Journal and Mass High Tech editors.
Under Mark Linton's leadership, etfile was founded in 1996 to meet the growing need for automated Enterprise Content Management (ECM) and workflow solutions to enable the paperless office. Committed to helping organizations cut back on paper waste and reduce their carbon footprint on the environment, Mark has established etfile as a leading provider of custom integrated, electronic document imaging, filing and retrieval systems offering superior price and performance and comprehensive service and support. The company's enterprise edition is deployed in 1,000 offices across North America, the UK, and the Caribbean with more than 30,000 users, and proven to increase efficiency in organizations by up to 30 percent.
"It is gratifying to be recognized as CIO of the Year, and I am proud to have led etfile in helping hundreds of organizations reduce the amount of paper and utility waste they are producing," said Mark Linton. "In addition, our customers tell us they have saved money and time using our Enterprise Content Management to automate their workflow process."
Linton's deep understanding of software development and industry trends has led to the continuous fulfillment of customer needs, including key features such as data capture, distribution, process management and integration tools. He has also led the etfile development team to design cutting-edge content management and workflow software for harnessing the power and ease-of-use of the cloud for web-based file sharing, online collaboration, automated workflows, and advanced business analytics.
etfile's product portfolio will soon change with the introduction of OfficeScope -- a 100 percent cloud-based content management solution, empowering Small-to-Medium sized businesses that deal with paper and document intensive customer service to put their "paper where your mouse is" by scanning all paper and digital documents. By moving from a client-server-based model to a self-service web-based product, OfficeScope will service new clients in any vertical market.
The 3rd Annual CIO of the Year Awards will be presented at a breakfast on Thursday, June 27, 2013 at the Seaport Hotel, Boston.
