Share Article

WeWebU Software AG, the maker of OpenWorkdesk, and Zia Consulting, a leading Alfresco partner in the USA, are announcing their new partnership agreement. Both share the commitment to Open Source and are active members of the OASIS CMIS Technical Committee driving forward the Open Standard for ECM. Customers may expect cutting-edge and easy-to-use solutions for Transactional Content Management on an Open Source basis.

Our customers profit in two ways: End users enjoy professional, user-friendly transactional content management applications while their IT department benefits from manageable risk on a limited IT budget”, explains Mike Mahon, President & CEO of Zia.

Zia will resell, implement and support WeWebU OpenWorkdesk based on the Alfresco Enterprise Content Management (ECM) platform in the US. In addition to the platinum partnership with Alfresco, Zia is also a platinum partner with Ephesoft, a provider of open source mailroom automation solutions.

“Combining the high-quality products of Alfresco and Ephesoft with WeWebU OpenWorkdesk enables us to provide end-to-end solutions and processes based on an open source software stack. Our customers profit in two ways: End users enjoy fully professional, user-friendly transactional content management applications while their IT department benefits from manageable risk on a limited IT budget”, explains Mike Mahon, President & CEO of Zia.

OpenWorkdesk is the best way of realizing content centric business applications. It has been awarded Alfresco EMEA Solution of the Year 2011 and is the first choice of many organizations for transactional content management where maximum throughput and efficiency are key requirements. Although it comes with a pure web front-end, it is as user friendly as a fat client. With its Zero-Install Desktop Integration, WeWebU even goes one step further: It allows using an ECM system intuitively and with virtually no training effort from a wide range of desktop applications like Microsoft Office and Adobe Acrobat but also from open source programs like OpenOffice. Zero-Install Desktop Integration can be used stand-alone or can be easily integrated into OpenWorkdesk or Alfresco Share as well. The Advanced Document Viewing component of OpenWorkdesk displays all documents consistently, no matter which format they are or where they are stored.

“Only a few weeks ago Alfresco announced a global technology partnership with WeWebU. Zia brings wide-ranging knowledge and experience of both, the Open Source and ECM market and is the perfect US partner from the Alfresco ecosystem for us. This partnership will help us to tap our huge growth potential in the USA. We are really looking forward to the feedback from Alfresco DevCon visitors in San Diego, where Zia will present our OpenWorkdesk based on Alfresco ECM at their booth on October 26 and 27”, states Stefan Waldhauser, WeWebU’s CEO.
