COLUMBUS, OH--(Marketwire - Sep 19, 2012) - GlobalWise Investments, Inc. (OTCBB: GWIV) (OTCQB: GWIV) (www.GlobalWiseInvestments.com) and its wholly owned subsidiary Intellinetics, Inc. ("Intellinetics"), a leading-edge technology company focused on the design, implementation and management of cloud-based Enterprise Content Management ("ECM") systems in both the public and private sectors, today provide an update on the deployment of the co-developed eDocs platform with Sycle.net in audiology clinics.
Sycle.net is the hearing care industry's number one provider for Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) cloud-based software solutions. After an extensive due diligence process, Sycle.net chose Intellinetics as their ECM software partner. Together, both companies co-developed the private branded eDocs, a paperless office solution fully integrated within Sycle.net software, providing Sycle.net users the ability to easily organize important patient files within the easy-to-use Sycle.net interface.
Since the introduction of eDocs initially as a beta test with sixty users, Sycle.net and, as a result, GlobalWise, have on-boarded 148 new subscribers in the first 30 days of the official launch. There has been tremendous feedback from both new clients, as well as the sales force of Sycle.net, including how seamlessly the Intellivue™ software is integrated into the Sycle.net ERP audiology clinic software and how easy it is for clients to scan, sort and search for patient documents, especially within multiple offices where paper was previously stored on-site in filing cabinets.
"The addition of the Intellivue™ ECM software package to the rich Sycle.net ERP platform has been a tremendous success and one of the most successful 'add-on' releases in our history," stated Ridge Sampson, President and CEO of Sycle.net. "There has been especially strong interest from multi-location clinics who in the past had difficulty sharing documents between locations. With the highly secure nature of the eDocs software, clients can access documents anywhere they have access to the internet, over a laptop, iPhone or iPad, making everyone more efficient at meeting patient needs."
"I am extremely encouraged by the success of the integration and roll-out of the eDocs cloud-based offering with Sycle.net," stated William J. "BJ" Santiago, CEO of GlobalWise. "Sycle.net dominates the audiology industry and services approximately 65% of the clinics nationwide, with over 5,800 audiology clinics and 18,000 users in place nationwide. The addition of Intellivue™ provides Sycle.net with a value-added/cloud-based service to sell to their clients in an easy and efficient manner. eDocs is a strong example of our Capture, Grow, and Harvest strategy in the market to drive rapid growth in our cloud subscriber user base."
"The next phase for eDocs is potentially limitless," continued Mr. Sampson. "Sycle.net is actively exploring deployment of eDocs in European markets through the joint globalization efforts of our software. This next year should be very exciting for both Sycle.net and GlobalWise."
