SpringCM Again Recognized as a Leader in Nucleus Research's ECM Value Matrix

Rating Follows Intensive Value Analysis of SpringCM Contract Management Product

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - Dec 11, 2014) - SpringCM® today announced that Nucleus Research positioned SpringCM as a Leader in its Technology Value Matrix for Enterprise Content Management (ECM) for the second consecutive time. The Nucleus Value Matrix is based on functionality and usability, the two core measures that Nucleus has found indicate an application's ability to deliver initial ROI and, ultimately, maximum value for ECM solutions over time. The report can be found here.

The Value Matrix comes on the heels of a recent report by Nucleus Research that found SpringCM customers using SpringCM's contract management application with Salesforce reported significant business improvements. Nucleus found that more than half of SpringCM's customers were able to increase the productivity of sales and legal teams by at least 20 percent. Those customers going from completely manual processes experienced even greater productivity increases. That full Nucleus report can be downloaded here.

Nucleus identified four forces that are being integrated into ECM product roadmaps in 2015, all of which are all areas SpringCM has delivered innovations recently, including:

  • Simplification of user interfaces
  • Automation of processes that reduce the number of touches that content receives.
  • Integration with other enterprise management platforms to provide a more streamlined and efficient experience for the user.
  • Mobility and collaboration to enable employees to securely access, create, and share content from mobile devices.

In the new Value Matrix, Nucleus wrote that SpringCM for years has offered the only cloud-based content management solution, and SpringCM is positioned to capitalize on customers' new willingness to shift to and expand SaaS investments. Nucleus noted that while some organizations may remain wary of moving to the cloud, improvements in security measures and a superior ROI are beginning to change minds. Recent Nucleus research showed cloud solutions delivering 1.7 times more ROI than on-premise systems.

Nucleus highlighted SpringCM's integration with Salesforce via "a simple and dynamic interface that automatically adds and removes action buttons based on what is appropriate for the selected content, following the Dark Cockpit mantra." Furthermore, Nucleus noted that Spring CM integrates with Oracle Fusion CRM, Oracles Sales Cloud, and other cloud-based applications making it "a flexible and capable solution for most organizations."

"SpringCM continues to build on its early lead as a fully cloud-based service provider," said Ian Campbell, CEO of Nucleus Research. "This gives SpringCM both functionality and usability advantages and is driving greater value as the Nucleus Value Matrix for ECM is shows."

"Based on the trajectory from the current and previous value matrices, we expect SpringCM will continue to increase the value even more for its customers, especially as it further develops strategic partnerships to allow for a richer feature set and a more streamlined user experience," said John Drotar, Nucleus Research analyst.

"SpringCM provides a streamlined way for users to store, share and work on content while keeping it secure," said Victor Cizinauskas, Director, Product Marketing, SpringCM. "And our robust mobile, web and desktop apps only make content management easier. In other words, we enable you to get more done with your content from wherever you are."
