BitRock Inc., the leading provider of tools and services for deploying open source applications, announced today that KnowledgeTree has selected its new Network Service to enhance its subscription offerings. KnowledgeTree™ is Document Management Made Simple - it offers turnkey document management software that makes it easy for business people to get a complete, enterprise-grade solution up and running without significant IT resources. With the BitRock Network Service, maintaining a KnowledgeTree installation is now just as easy as setting it up.
BitRock and KnowledgeTree first partnered over two years ago to deliver a fast, clickable install process for KnowledgeTree on both Windows and Linux. The BitRock Network Service now makes it easy to keep KnowledgeTree installations up to date and running smoothly once the software is deployed.
KnowledgeTree's focus on ease of use and strong Microsoft Windows and Office integration toolset has made it a compelling, high-value document management solution for all organizations. Business users are able to securely manage their company's document creation and editing, versioning and sharing, all from a powerful Web interface and Windows Explorer tools.
"Partnering with BitRock makes it possible for us to offer value-added services, including updates and monitoring, to our subscription customers." said Daniel Chalef, CEO of KnowledgeTree. "The BitRock Network Service enabled us to bring our enhanced subscription offering to market faster and more cost-effectively than building the software in-house."
"KnowledgeTree makes document management accessible to companies of all sizes." said Erica Brescia, CEO of BitRock. "The enhanced subscription service enables companies to deploy and maintain KnowledgeTree without significant IT resources and at a lower cost than traditional document management systems."
The BitRock Network Service is now available to both open and closed-source software vendors. It enables companies to offer a subscription service for updates, monitoring and back up (coming soon) of their software without building out their own infrastructure.
