NCR Corporation’s Systemedia Group, developers of consumables and internet-based document management solutions, has formed a relationship with Shana Corporation, a developer of integrated electronic forms management solutions for the enterprise. Through the new alliance, NCR will expand its forms consultation and document management services by jointly marketing and selling Shana’s e-forms technologies.
NCR will use Shana's Informed E-Forms Portal via NCR On-Line, an internet-based tool that allows users to place orders, track their status and create real-time inventory and reports.
The system solves a fundamental business problem: the management of hundreds, even thousands of forms. The potential benefits are significant: a properly integrated solution can help to reduce cycle times, save expense, and help with issues such as regulatory compliance. The same framework can be used for B2B e-business applications.
By using the Shana E-Forms Portal, NCR will provide customers with a web-based framework to design, deploy and process any form, in a way that evolves with the infrastructure.
“Shana is very pleased to be allied with a company the size and calibre of NCR,” said John Murphy, vice president of Shana Sales and Marketing. “Together, we anticipate significant benefits for our clients who are looking for better ways to manage their forms systems.”
“This initiative is another sign of NCR's commitment to deliver proven, superior solutions to its clients,” said Martin Hunt, national accounts technology director, NCR Systemedia. “Many of our clients have identified their paper and e-forms systems as problem areas; our relationship with Shana, when combined with our integrated technologies, will allow us to recommend solutions that best meet the customer's needs based on their current infrastructure.”
Shana also has strategic relationships Entrust Technologies and FileNET. Shana is a privately owned company and brings 13 years experience to its solutions, which are used by over 450,000 users in more than 65 countries.
