NextPage Makes Migration to Microsoft Sharepoint Manageable07/22/2010
NEXTPAGE CONTROL INTEGRATED WITH SHAREPOINT
NextPage Control is integrated with Microsoft SharePoint, creating the ability to proactively govern and manage stored documents. NextPage was one of only eight companies selected to participate in the Microsoft BizSpark One Innovation Pavilion.
DRAPER, UT -- (Marketwire - July 22, 2010) -- NextPage is making it easier and less costly for companies to take advantage of the powerful collaboration features in Microsoft SharePoint by helping users intelligently migrate their existing documents into SharePoint and manage those documents going forward. As a result, customers will see increased value from their SharePoint investment through lower data-storage costs, fewer legal concerns, and greater employee productivity.
"SharePoint is great at facilitating collaboration and the organization of documents under its control," said Darren Lee, President and CEO of NextPage. "However, for the thousands of documents that end up in users' hard drives, thumb drives, e-mails and shared network drives outside of SharePoint, NextPage has the answer. NextPage software organizes unstructured documents so the information a user wants and needs can easily be classified and moved to SharePoint. From there, NextPage and SharePoint work together to manage documents, old and new, so they're continually cleaned and classified. We call that 'evergreen governance,' automatically saving a company time and money as long as the data exists."
Shawn Ivey, Director of Information Technology for Grant Thornton, said, "NextPage works with our SharePoint sites in a way that's totally invisible to users. We knew we could track centralized copies of documents inside SharePoint, but we still needed visibility into all those ancillary copies on the edges of our organization. NextPage gives us complete visibility into every document, without any impact on end users."
NextPage specializes in "information governance"--the control and management of data within a company for security, cost efficiency, and regulatory compliance. More than 7.5 billion Microsoft Office documents are created every year, and 35 percent of all corporate documents contain legally sensitive information. More important, 80 percent of these documents are stored on users' hard drives and shared drives, outside the view and control of centralized document repositories like SharePoint. NextPage automates the management of these documents (and their duplicates or revisions, wherever they reside) so they can be appropriately saved, deleted, or accessed as needed.
A member of Microsoft's BizSpark One program, NextPage demonstrated its capabilities at the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference in Washington, D.C., last week.
NextPage and BizSpark
At the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference, NextPage was one of only eight companies selected to participate in the Microsoft BizSpark One Innovation Pavilion. The BizSpark program was created by Microsoft to help accelerate the success of entrepreneurs and early-stage startups globally. The program gives NextPage fast and easy access to current, full-featured software development tools and platforms, and it gives a connection to more than 2,000 BizSpark network partners including university incubators, hosters, government agencies, investors, consultants, and financial institutions.
NextPage, an innovator in information governance solutions, delivers the only information tracking platform that mitigates enterprise risk, increases document policy compliance, and reduces the cost of data management. NextPage does all of this by tracking, managing, and enabling disposition of documents--no matter where they are located--on hard drives, USB's, servers, and e-mail attachments.
