CONCORD, Calif., Aug. 30, 2011 — Formtek, Inc., a leading provider of document and content management solutions to industrial clients for over two decades, announced today that it had signed a Partnership Agreement with Ephesoft, Inc., developer of the only Open Source Document Capture Solution with enterprise support in the world.
With this partnership, Formtek® adds the Ephesoft™ Enterprise Edition to its existing product portfolio, which includes Formtek | Orion™, Alfresco® Enterprise, and the Formtek Engineering Data Management (EDM) Solution for Alfresco.
Formtek chose to partner with Ephesoft because Ephesoft Enterprise Edition provides a feature set equivalent to that of the current industry leaders, using the latest tool sets, in a 100% web-based Open Source solution, and at a much lower total cost of ownership. Ephesoft advanced features include high performance automatic classification and separation technology based on content and layout, learning of documents, and meta-data extraction technologies using bar-code, regular expression, and phrases.
Formtek is also an Alfresco Gold SI Partner, and Ephesoft seamlessly interfaces to Alfresco through CMIS (Content Management Interoperability Services). This allows Formtek to offer a single integrated solution that includes both advanced scan/capture, based on Ephesoft, and enterprise content management, based on Alfresco.
With the addition of the Formtek Engineering Data Management (EDM) solution for Alfresco, including the Formtek EDM Connector for AutoCAD®, Formtek is positioned to provide the market with the only pre-packaged, installation-ready, minimal services solution that combines enterprise scan/capture, content management, records management, and engineering data management, on an Open Source content platform, and without expensive license fees.
"We welcome Formtek as an Ephesoft Platinum Partner," said David Talarico, Ephesoft Senior Vice President Sales & Marketing – Americas. "Formtek brings over twenty years of experience in scan/capture, imaging, and document management to our Partner Program, as well as a unique domain expertise in engineering and other industrial markets."

Scanlon, Formtek's President and COO. "With the addition of Ephesoft to our product portfolio, we now offer our clients a state-of the-art, Open Source alternative for advanced document and data capture to complement our existing document management, records management, and engineering data management solutions."
