Boston, MA and London, UK (PRWEB) March 16, 2010
Vamosa, a provider of software and solutions for Enterprise Content Governance (ECoG), and SchemaLogic, the leader in metadata management software for enterprise content, today announced an expanded partnership to provide European support for MetaPoint. Vamosa has been appointed the sole European distributor for Schemalogic's MetaPoint software which integrates with Microsoft Office to tag and classify documents automatically when they are created and suggests to the user where documents should be stored on the Microsoft Office SharePoint Server. Vamosa will offer local support for European customers and Microsoft Partners engaged in enterprise SharePoint implementations.
MetaPoint is particularly suited to companies implementing SharePoint across the organization for document management and who operate in regulated industries where records management requirements drive a focus on tagging documents at source for findability, compliance and security concerns.
For example, Continental Airlines has deployed MetaPoint as a part of a comprehensive Information Management strategy to greatly reduce the cost of eDiscovery inquiries by making information easier to find and govern across the enterprise. The airline, replying on MetaPoint, is able to consistently manage and apply metadata across the organization and greatly increase the value and usability of information while reducing cost and improving information governance and eDiscovery compliance.
"MetaPoint is extremely valuable to the enterprise as it provides the ability to use tags and metadata to manage content throughout its lifecycle in environments such as Life Sciences where effective storage and retrieval of documents is critical to the business," said Jeff Dirks, President and CEO, SchemaLogic. "As a result of this agreement Vamosa is now able to offer European customers local support for MetaPoint, which will complement their expertise in effective governance of the content lifecycle."
George Knox, CEO, Vamosa said, "We now offer Microsoft European partners and customers the capability to find and share information more effectively using SchemaLogic's MetaPoint. Vamosa's suite of ECoG products, incorporating MetaPoint, not only helps to get content under control, but lowers costs; from the cost of regulatory compliance to reducing SharePoint administrations costs. This partnership offers customers valuable access to software and services that will transform content into findable knowledge. It also provides ongoing monitoring and maintenance of web sites to increase interaction and sales and reduce risk."

Together, the companies offer customers a one-stop shop for a range of technologies that help get content under control through effective governance throughout the full content lifecycle: initiation, creation, control and consumption.
