Guelph Hydro Selects DOCOVA ECM

>PRWEB.COM Newswire

Burlington, Ontario (PRWEB) May 01, 2012 Inc, a leading Enterprise Content Management Technology Vendor supporting Microsoft, Lotus Domino, and Open Source Web Technologies, has announced Guelph Hydro has selected DOCOVA ECM to manage their documents, business content and records.

The driving force behind the selection of DOCOVA for the large Electrical Utility was to become less reliant on paper for their processes, while improving the handling and management of business records. The Utility’s end goal is for a material improvement to overall process productivity and a reduction in direct costs like paper and physical storage.

DOCOVA ECM was selected as the Enterprise Content Management platform to address:

  • Paper-based processes causing issues with paper being misplaced and early versions of documents floating around the office
  • Only paper documents followed strict retention rules; electronic files do not
  • No standards or capability for collaboration, search, and destruction
  • Multiple versions of documents stored in paper form, emails and in shared drives (too many places)
  • With redundant documents stored in multiple locations, true document destruction is difficult. Record Managers have to search and investigate whether documents are truly destroyed

“We’re really excited about the potential DOCOVA will deliver inside our organization,” states Dan Amyot Director of IS for Guelph Hydro, “A key consideration for us is value. We believe DOCOVA provides more value for the IT budget - a key factor in today's uncertain economic climate."

DOCOVA ECM enables project teams, departments and organizations to start simple to get a handle on their own version of Content Chaos. Beyond just simple file sharing, DOCOVA ECM offers access to business documents, content and records from anywhere, on any device: PC, tablet (iPad, etc), or smart phone (, iPhone, Blackberry, etc). DOCOVA ECM can be deployed in Private and Hybrid Cloud environments or be consumed on a pending public cloud version at

DOCOVA ECM quickly gets a handle on processes with easily configurable features like multi-level, multi-function workflow, version control, social features, and desktop application integration with Microsoft Office, Outlook/Exchange and IBM Lotus Notes. Learn more at
