OpenText Makes Information Sharing Easy, Inexpensive and Safe

Earlier today, OpenText announced immediate availability on its new line of cloud-based solutions geared toward offering customers an easy and safe way to exchange information that's also cost-effective – a combination that should leave plenty of businesses sitting up and taking notice.
OpenText's new line of cloud-based solutions, built partially around its recent acquisitions from EasyLink, includes parts from OpenText Alchemy, OpenText OCR, OpenText RightFax, and OpenText MBPM. These components are then brought into the OpenText Cloud, and placed on a single platform.
This combination of components gives users a lot of extra power in terms of creating and controlling the flow of their documents. Better yet, it also allows users the option of outsourcing some or even all of their document capture needs, and lowers the amount of time and resources the company needs to spend on distributing documents.
It's not just document dissemination that gets an advantage with OpenText's new lineup; OpenText also gives companies a way to better secure their fax communications, and given how many companies use faxing these days as a secure and functional communications method, having a way to improve security still further with that technology isn't a bad idea at all.
Moreover, it also allows for better security when it comes to archiving that data. Since it incorporates OpenText Alchemy, it provides an array of options like document tracking and more rapid archiving to make the easier to work with.
Matthew Brine, vice president and general manager of OpenText's EasyLink & Fax and Document Distribution Group, also noted some benefits in his remarks: "As a pioneer in hybrid fax services, our new offerings leverage the OpenText EasyLink platform and provide our customers with enhanced data security and sovereignty while simplifying fax-telephony integration. But we are far more than fax. Our integrated business management services allow organizations to securely exchange virtually any type of information, regardless of file type or format."
Again, this goes toward greater efficiencies overall; when greater efficiencies manifest themselves in a business' operations, cost savings often follow as a business spends less time on some activities and thus frees up that time to move to other activities, many of which can generate profit.
For those who want a chance at improved profit for their businesses, new solutions are currently available from both OpenText and its associated partners.
With a less than perfect economy, the chances of higher profit by moving resources away from some activities into more profitable activities isn't one that anyone wants to take lightly. OpenText's cloud solution may not guarantee a better bottom line, but it only betters your chances of reaching it.
