The Well Project Implements Documentum eRoom for Online Collaboration

Share Article

Armedia implements Documentum eRoom, the Documentum enterprise collaboration solution, for The Well Project (TWP). eRoom provides the distributed TWP leadership team with tools such as shared calendars, contact lists, project issue tracking, and real time discussion.

Armedia LLC (http://www.armedia.com), a leading provider of enterprise content management services and a Documentum Signature Partner, today announced that through its services The Well Project has implemented Documentum eRoom 7.2, the latest version of the Documentum enterprise collaboration solution. The Well Project (TWP) is a community-focused organization that is committed to improving the lives of women living with HIV and AIDS. Using eRoom 7.2 and integrating with its existing Documentum 5 platform, TWP can now securely collaborate online to manage its internal projects, exchange real-time information and presentations and easily access its Documentum repositories.

TWP was anxious to enhance internal controls by creating an online “Executive Dashboard” that would allow its distributed leadership team to securely and conveniently collaborate online on both company and project-related matters. They were looking for a collaboration platform to integrate with Documentum, but also provide many additional value-added features such as ease of use, project-based configuration, shared tools (e.g. calendar, issue tracker, contact list, etc), flexible security and real time discussion.

“We needed a customized Executive Dashboard, where the leadership team, as well as certain employees and partners could easily, quickly and securely collaborate on information relevant to them," said Richard Averitt, Chief Operating Officer for The Well Project. “eRoom, combined with our existing Documentum platform, gives us the best of both worlds in that regards. Through the customizations that Armedia developed on eRoom for us, our leadership team now has the tools and ease of use that we needed to efficiently exchange files and real-time information, without sacrificing our compliance standards or ‘dumbing’ down our usage of Documentum.”

"We understood from our continuing work with The Well Project that as much as the leadership team wanted to use all of the rich features of Documentum for managing their files and information, there was a learning curve for them given their other commitments," said Jim Nasr, Chief Executive Officer for Armedia, a business and technology consulting firm. “Creating their online Executive Dashboard through eRoom allows TWP leadership to not only more benefit from the core functionality of Documentum, but also have at their disposal a number of value-added tools to effectively collaborate online.”
