Complexus to grow customer base for Firestring Serendipity Semantic Metadata Engine for SharePoint Clients in South Africa & Sub-Saharan Africa.

Since launch Complexus has grown to become an established Enterprise Collaboration & Enterprise Information Management (EIM) solutions provider with a reputation for innovation in the Southern African SharePoint community. After a year that saw the launch of several new SharePoint products to the African market, head count expansion and the winning of several new contracts, Complexus is strengthening its partner base with game changing, Enterprise software vendor, Firestring. Firestring’s Serendipity product allows clients to automatically analyse and tag content using a unique semantic engine that radically improves the findability of content in SharePoint.

Founder & Director of Client & Partner Engagement, Nick Bradshaw said, “2013 was a great year for Complexus. Complexus has matured as a business with a string of Microsoft partner accreditations under its belt, a portfolio of differentiated SharePoint solutions and a growing list of Blue Chip clients”. Bradshaw highlighted, “Signing this reseller agreement with Firestring is another logical part of broadening our offerings in the SharePoint space, with what we call TaxonomyeVolve”.

Co-Founder & Director of Consulting & Training, Marc Lenferna said, “More often than not, we work with clients who are quite literally stuck in a maze of sprawling, unstructured legacy content with no Taxonomy or Metadata strategy and as a result, poor search results. This often hinders end user adoption and ultimately efforts to effectively collaborate. TaxonomyeVolve is part of a portfolio of turnkey solutions from Complexus where we work with client legacy content and derive an Information Architecture, Taxonomy & Metadata strategy that can scale to optimize Terabytes of legacy content, and then, automatically tag new content as it is added by end users post deployment”. Lenferna concluded, “Serendipity is the high impact semantic engine that drives the TaxonomyeVolve offering and is one we know our clients will benefit from”.

Alison Jacobson, CEO / COO of Firestring said, “The Enterprise client no longer wants to start from scratch with lengthy technical development projects to yield a return on their collaboration & EIM investments. Nor do they want to be left “high & dry” when it comes to deployment & support. Our Channel Partner philosophy is to work with the best solution providers that know how to deliver a complete solution to the client”. Jacobson went on to say, “Complexus offers needs analysis, strategy & architectural development, solution deployment & maintenance support as a complete offering, thus making them a natural fit for us in the SharePoint market in Africa. Their “no code” integration and configuration philosophy aligns well with our own and their network of partners in South Africa and the wider African market will help drive client success”. Jacobson concluded, “They have been proactive since Day 1 of our engagement and already have a sound track record working with leading technology vendors like ourselves and large African corporates. We look forward to 2014 and making this a success”.
