Orlando, Fla. (PRWEB) June 19, 2013
The Institute of Financial Operations is proud to announce a silver partnership with KnowledgeLake, which provides Microsoft SharePoint ECM products and solutions.
The Institute offers four levels of partnership — strategic, diamond, gold, and silver — for sponsors that are committed to the membership association’s core financial operations disciplines, which include accounts payable, accounts receivable, information management, and data capture.
“KnowledgeLake is recognized as the founder of the SharePoint document imaging marketplace,” said Jo E. LaBorde, executive director of The Institute. “Since 2003, the company has been helping businesses leverage the power of SharePoint as the dominant content platform for building and deploying diverse financial operations solutions.”
KnowledgeLake products include document imaging, workflow, business process management, transactional content management, document management, records management, Web content management, collaboration, portals, and more. Long-term content viability, open standards, information worker productivity, and compliance are the key drivers of product design.
The KnowledgeLake accounts payable solution, in particular, helps to accelerate deployment time, enabling organizations to quickly reduce invoice processing costs, improve operational productivity, and achieve return on investment. In fact, two of the company’s AP customers were selected as finalists for the Huntington Bank Innovation Award that is presented by The Institute at its annual Fusion conference, which took place May 2013 at Walt Disney World near Orlando.
“Our goal when creating new solutions is to introduce an innovative, custom set of solutions to meet specific financial operations challenges,” said Jason Burian, director of customer excellence at KnowledgeLake. “We are thrilled to have had two of our valued clients named as finalists for the Innovation Award. It fully reinforces our vision to build the most pioneering products in the industry.”
