[Metalogix's] solution was not only easy to deploy but made it very easy to find information. Added to this, we found the company to be highly responsive and supportive to us. I would have no reservation in recommending their solutions.

Sword Group, an international leader in the delivery of business applications to organizations across regulated industries, and Metalogix Software, a leading provider of solutions for Microsoft SharePoint migration, management, and archiving, today announced a partnership to provide added value to Sword Group’s SharePoint and ECM solutions through Metalogix Software’s trusted SharePoint solution products.

Terry Coyne, Sales Manager at Sword Group’s UK ECM Division, explained that the new partnership with Metalogix “enables Sword to reduce the ongoing cost to our SharePoint client projects by using tried and tested off the shelf solutions for archiving and migration. Metalogix software minimizes project risk for us and for our clients.”

The partnership has already garnered success, facilitating a SharePoint 2010 global migration for one of Sword’s US clients with Metalogix’s SharePoint Site Migration Manager, and providing a simple and successful archiving tool for Sword’s SharePoint based legal document management solution, Excalibur, to Lewis Silkin, a Sword client based in the UK.

Lewis Silkin, a London based law firm, has been working with international IT specialists Sword Group to develop an innovative document management solution in SharePoint for the legal market. Jan Durant, Director of IT and Operations explains, “in line with the solution vision, we needed to add on a seamless archiving process for our firm that was cost effective and easy to deploy and use. Having reviewed the market we chose Metalogix. Their solution was not only easy to deploy but made it very easy to find information. Added to this, we found the company to be highly responsive and supportive to us. I would have no reservation in recommending their solutions.”

Metalogix is a leader in solutions that migrate content into SharePoint, keep SharePoint environments running smoothly, manage the content throughout its lifecycle, and archive content for compliance and e-discovery. Metalogix migration products move content into SharePoint from almost any source system: from one SharePoint version to another (2003, 2007, 2010, WSSv2 or WSSv3), from Enterprise Content Management systems (e.g. Documentum, eRoom, Stellent (Oracle Content Server), Livelink), and from file systems, Exchange public folders, blogs, wikis and websites on-premise or in the cloud. The company’s storage management and content management solutions help customers to run SharePoint efficiently by minimizing the growth of content databases and reducing content sprawl. This approach maximizes SharePoint’s benefits for both IT and business units while reducing an organization’s total cost of ownership.

“Metalogix’s partner program selects exceptional partners, like Sword Group, who are passionate about technology and are committed to supporting the local market. Our mutual focus on helping customers take full advantage SharePoint's ECM, collaboration and publishing capabilities to improve productivity and reduce IT costs makes Sword Group a seamless fit,” said Rasool Rayani Co-Founder and Director of Metalogix.
