London, UK (PRWEB) October 02, 2012
Qorus Software, provider of document automation solutions for Microsoft SharePoint and Microsoft Office, today announced the formation of a reseller partnership with FOXit, a Microsoft Partner and service provider in South Africa focused on Project and Portfolio Management (PPM) in business. FOXit will serve as a reseller and implementation and support partner in South Africa for Qorus Software’s flagship product: Qorus DocGeneration, the industry’s first document automation solution for SharePoint.
Qorus Software has been recruiting resellers in the UK, US and South Africa as demand for document automation for Microsoft’s document management platform, SharePoint, continues to grow in those regions. A report published in July 2012 by AIIM, the global community of information professionals, highlighted predicted growth in the use of 3rd party automated document creation add-ons for SharePoint to be forecast at over 200%. Over half (54%) of companies responding to the report’s survey are using or planning to use 3rd party add-on products in order to enhance SharePoint functionality.
“The majority of companies we’ve seen have gone from a ‘grassroots movement’ type of implementation for SharePoint across a patch-work of divisions to rolling it out across the business as an enterprise-wide knowledge management solution,” says Ray Meiring, Managing Director of Qorus Software. “As SharePoint takes on a higher profile within the enterprise and a larger percentage of the overall IT budget gets allocated towards SharePoint applications, business leaders are demanding that SharePoint deliver the promised productivity gains that result in significant cost savings. Solutions like Qorus DocGeneration are able to deliver these productivity gains by extending SharePoint functionality from content storage and content management to content creation.”
“We believe in working towards curbing our customers’ operational costs through the implementation of smart technology,” says Anita Potgieter, COO of FOXit. “Document automation’s ability to reduce the time and effort required to generate business critical documents such as contracts, information packs and financial reports from hours down to minutes can very quickly result in tremendous cost savings and an improvement in service levels to a business.”
“Qorus DocGeneration’s tight integration with Microsoft SharePoint, Word and PowerPoint ensures high adoption rates from users familiar with Microsoft products and extends and complements FOXit’s Microsoft Business Productivity Stack offering,” concludes Potgieter.
