IntelliChief and Friedman Operating Group to offer electronic document management, integrated with their mission-critical software solutions including Friedman Frontier for the To-Order Manufacturer
Mansfield, MA (September 26, 2012) IntelliChief LLC, a leading provider of document management, workflow and document distribution solutions for the IBM I (System i, iSeries, AS/400) and Power Enterprise, today announce an exclusive integration partnership with Friedman Operating Group, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Constellation Software, Inc. (“Constellation”, TSX: CSU) and leading enterprise software solution provider to discrete to-order manufacturing, logistics, supply chain management, wholesale, and distribution industries.
Powered with enterprise class document management and workflow software from IntelliChief, Friedman users will now be able to manage the complex business processes surrounding the receipt of unstructured data in the form of paper based business documents generated internally or received by their supply chain partners and customers, securely storing and indexing those documents for easy retrieval by authorized users.
The partnership provides a strong signal the two software providers are serious about providing seamless solutions that bring significantly increased value to their joint customers, solving problems and saving money like never before. The joint solution means less labor to process business documents in the Purchase-to-Pay and Order-to-Cash cycles and throughout the organization where business effectiveness is hampered by the inefficient handling of paper based documents in complicated processes. The combined solutions enable organizations to be Sarbannes-Oxley and HIPAA compliant and are engineered to make internal and external audits more efficient and cost effective.
This agreement between the companies not only extends Document Management capabilities to Friedman’s Frontier product, but also encompasses all the solutions that fall under the Friedman Operating Group including those offered by Computer Solutions Inc., Viewlocity, Varsity Logistics, Markinson, Logimax, Winsys and PMC Software.
“Our solutions are very complementary. This partnership will allow Friedman customers to streamline key business tasks such as PO/invoice approvals along with Workflow-driven 3-way matching, as well as automate entire processes, such as Purchase-to-Pay and Order-to-Cash,” explained Michael Jasper, Partner Development Manager at IntelliChief.
Mike Rooney, VP of Sales and Marketing at IntelliChief, further states, “This partnership announcement is just the first step in our relationship with Friedman. We will continue to enhance our integration and partnership for the benefit of Friedman customers. There are many more business processes within Friedman accounts where managing documents without the paper, saying goodbye to the paper shuffle, will benefit our mutual customers.”
Customers looking to gain these enhancements and increase efficiency and reduce costs in accounting, purchasing, customer service, and other departments should contact their Friedman representative or IntelliChief for more information.
