Strong demand for exploiting existing Office 365/SharePoint investments for effective case management bodes well for new channel partnerships across the German-speaking markets
Belfast, October 2nd , 2017 – Repstor, the ECM adoption company that helps businesses exploit their SharePoint and Office 365 investments, has announced plans to expand sales of its content and case management solutions to the German-speaking countries of Germany, Austria and Switzerland (the so-called DACH region).
Repstor’s strategic partner for mainland Europe, Transform Data, will be responsible for establishing new channel partnerships in the region. The move follows strong sales across Benelux and the Nordics, particularly in the legal sector, fulfilled by the Dutch company.
European clients including Strukton, Boels Zanders, ForFarmers, Morris Law and Haldor Topsoe have been snapping up Repstor’s solutions, which in the legal sector harness organisations’ existing investments in everyday Microsoft office platforms, to deliver powerful case and matter lifecycle management.
Transform Data, which specialises in legal enterprise content management (ECM) solutions and distributes and builds Repstor’s legal solutions such as custodian, in target European markets, has been successfully implementing Repstor’s product suite in Benelux and the Nordics for the last three years, achieving significant success with law firms and in-house corporate legal teams.
In common with Repstor, its mission is to help customers improve productivity and deliver transformation using existing systems they have bought.
Commenting on the European expansion plan, Alan McMillen, Repstor’s CEO, said, “Broadening into the German-speaking DACH countries is a logical and exciting move given the impact Transform Data has had with our legal solutions in the Benelux and Nordic regions. The pressures and demands around ECM are the same wherever you go in the world, so the wider opportunity is substantial, and Transform Data is the perfect distribution partner to help us capitalise on these additional markets.
“What’s great about our partnership with Transform Data is that the company was founded on the same ethos as ours – to encourage customers to build on the software investments they’ve already made, instead of starting again for every new thing they want to do. With added controls and usability, Office 365 and SharePoint are the obvious foundation for content management, and our products are proven in this context. Transform Data understands and has first-hand experience of this, so who better to build new channels for us?”
René Beulen, responsible for partner management at Transform Data added, “We’re delighted to have this chance to take Repstor’s products to the DACH region and appoint new partners there. We feel privileged to have been entrusted with this opportunity, and we can’t wait to take this forward. With demand as high as it is for solid, practical and user-friendly ECM case management, we all have much to gain from this strategic expansion.”
