Local Government Selects Collabware to Deliver Enterprise-Class Records Management Solution Built on SharePoint®

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Jan. 27, 2011) - Collabware,, today announced the City of White Rock has selected its SharePoint® Records Management Accelerator and SharePoint® Portal Accelerator. This marks the third municipality in British Columbia to join Collabware's customer roster.

"We looked at SharePoint® out-of-the-box as an Electronic Document and Records Management System and knew it would be too expensive to customize it the way we needed to deliver a highly-usable solution for employees," said Chris Zota, IT Manager at the City of White Rock. "With Collabware, it has been built for us – we can deploy rapidly and with all of the advantages of a custom solution – at a fraction of the time and cost."

"Collabware is seeing traction, particularly with government organizations, because we are able to help achieve business and technology goals on a reduced budget," said Graham Sibley, CEO, Collabware. "We also help organizations leverage their existing SharePoint® investment, which means teams are up and running faster and operational efficiency is visible across board."

Collabware's SharePoint® Records Management Accelerator and SharePoint® Portal Accelerator combine to deliver a powerful solution for organizations looking to implement a user-centric, full-featured, enterprise content management solution, without the onerous cost or lengthy timeline associated with traditional ECM vendors. Building on the strengths of the SharePoint® platform, integrated product features such as the Collabware File Plan Manager provide Record Managers with the level of control they demand. Additional features such as the Global Content View ensure the system can surface relevant content to users, regardless of storage location, saving time and effort while adhering to the principal "a single version of the truth". The solution is designed to scale and provide the governance needed for an enterprise-class content management system, while supporting user-adoption through a consistent experience across the environment.
