GlobalWise Enters Into New Channel Sales Partnership With Muratec America

New Partnership Expands Major Copier Dealer End-User Client Opportunities

COLUMBUS, OH--(Marketwired - Apr 29, 2013) - GlobalWise Investments, Inc. (OTCBB: GWIV) (OTCQB: GWIV) (www.GlobalWiseInvestments.com) and its wholly owned subsidiary Intellinetics, Inc., 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 announce the signing of a new channel sales partnership with Muratec America, Inc. (www.muratec.com).

Muratec America, headquartered in Plano, TX, is a U.S. based subsidiary of Muratec Machinery, Ltd., a privately held Japanese multinational corporation founded in 1935. Operating throughout North and South America, Muratec America is a manufacturer of workgroup A4 (letter/legal) multifunction printing solutions and is a provider of managed document services components. Muratec America has an experienced sales force and over 500 dealers in North America. 

"Muratec America represents another fantastic channel partner to expand our growth in both the public and private sectors addressing our strategic focus in the Managed Print Services (MPS) and Managed Services industries. Muratec America already has an established document management practice, and we're excited to earn their trust as partners. Their technological and domain expertise in document management will most likely expedite our path-to-market and establish our presence in the Managed Print Services and Managed Services industries," stated William "BJ" Santiago, CEO of GlobalWise. "Muratec has been a proven leader in offering solutions to their distribution channel of 500 dealers throughout North America selling the Muratec line of multifunction printers. Additionally, each Muratec dealer has approximately 2,000 end-user clients who will now be offered our Intellivue™ solution, and we're excited about this expanded reach to the market."

"We deeply value our IT managed services and managed document services components with a laser focus on offering best-in-class solutions that enable our dealer network to sell and have a competitive advantage with their clients and trusted relationships," said Jim D'Emidio, President of Muratec America, Inc. "It was vitally important we found the next generation of an ECM cloud-based provider who understood the mission critical and privacy needs within the copier dealer end-user client community. We were truly impressed with GlobalWise's unique packaging of their ECM cloud-based solution and their out of the box innovative workflow 'on-demand' solution templates that allows our end-user clients to immediately improve on both workflow and paper efficiencies in mission critical business areas. This new ECM model is also easier for the traditional copier dealer sales representatives to sell because it's not about features and functions but about improving business process optimization for their companies. We're truly excited about the launch of this relationship with GlobalWise."
