With Joint Solutions from ERP-Link and KnowledgeLake, Companies Can Now Easily Use SharePoint to Integrate and Manage Structured and Unstructured Documents and Data with SAP Document-Centric Business Processes

This partnership means that customers deploying enterprise content management applications will benefit from KnowledgeLake's expertise and ERP-Link's ability to make it easy to integrate SAP environments with Microsoft SharePoint.

ERP-Link Corp. and KnowledgeLake, Inc. today announce the signing of a partnership agreement to integrate and jointly promote KnowledgeLake document imaging and capture technologies for Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 Enterprise Content Management (ECM) solutions with ERP-Link software for providing SAP content to Microsoft services and applications.

Now customers can effortlessly use MOSS2007 as an SAP ArchiveLink-based ECM or document management solution for "inside SAP" business processes, and also create easy-to-use SharePoint applications to capture, connect, and manage both structured and unstructured content and data that is seamlessly integrated with their SAP environments. The ERP-Link iNet.DM software is SAP-certified for ArchiveLink and now expanded document capture, workflow, and management capability can be implemented for SAP environments utilizing the KnowledgeLake SharePoint ECM software.

With iNet.DM and KnowledgeLake's SharePoint ECM solutions, enterprises benefit from seamless access to SAP business processes and data, as well as unstructured data such as paper documents, electronic files, email, drawings and graphics, contracts, and so on. ERP-Link iNet.DM software uses the SAP ArchiveLink facility to automatically link incoming and outgoing business documents to specific SAP enterprise objects and processes, which are then stored in SharePoint/MOSS2007. ERP-Link customers use iNet software for SAP document-centric processes such as Invoice Processing, HR Records Management, Plant Maintenance, and for content management functions such as records management, SAP data and DART archival, plus SAP Solutions Manager-based project team sites.

KnowledgeLake, 2009 Microsoft Partner of the Year in two categories, makes it easy to capture and index documents from anywhere, with any device, directly into SharePoint, as well as enables searching and viewing through automatic scanning and indexing of unstructured content into SharePoint.

"Because we at ERP-Link are seeing more interest in incorporating SAP environments into Microsoft-based document management solutions, we're pleased to welcome KnowledgeLake to the growing number of vendors who are incorporating the iNet SAP-Microsoft interoperability platform into their software solutions," said Eric Anderson, President of ERP-Link Corp. "This partnership means that customers deploying enterprise content management applications will benefit from KnowledgeLake's expertise and ERP-Link's ability to make it easy to integrate SAP environments with Microsoft SharePoint."

"KnowledgeLake is pleased to welcome ERP-Link as our newest Alliance Partner. Teaming with a top-quality developer of business intelligence software for SAP AG's ERP systems enables SAP clients to manage their unstructured data with SAP Business Processes," said Bob Bueltmann, Vice President of Business Development and co-founder of KnowledgeLake, Inc. "Our partnership with ERP-Link will expand the functionality available to SAP clients so they can use their environment as an enterprise content management application and benefit from the combined expertise of KnoweldgeLake and ERP-Link."

KnowledgeLake and ERP-Link provide users of SAP a more cost-effective solution for integrating ECM and transaction-linked content to SAP than the legacy and proprietary solutions that have been the only options available until now. Customers now can leverage their existing investments in Microsoft Office SharePoint technology to integrate documents and workflow processes without the need to invest in expensive and proprietary products. The biggest benefactor of the ERP-Link and KnowledgeLake partnership are SAP customers as their entry level cost and total cost of ownership for ECM and workflow solutions just got far less costly to license and own.
