Document management software author, Version One, has signed a strategic partnership with Infor business partner, Cocoon. Under the terms of the agreement, Cocoon is re-selling Version One's end-to-end document management software solutions tightly integrated into Infor FMS SunSystems financial management software. This announcement comes just three months after Version One and mid-market business software provider, Infor, announced a global document management partnership agreement.
Version One's solutions enable Cocoon's Infor FMS SunSystems customers to electronically create, deliver, authorise, store, manage and process financial documents directly from SunSystems, reducing the time and costs associated with printing, photocopying, authorising, posting and filing paper documents.
Chris Wootton, Managing Director of Cocoon, says, "We sought a document management partner with a proven history of integrating into SunSystems. As Infor's global partner for document management, Version One was the obvious choice with its clear knowledge and understanding of the SunSystems marketplace. Version One's software is also functionally-rich and provides a rapid return-on-investment."
Wootton continues, "We are confident that our partnership with Version One will deliver considerable cost and efficiency benefits to our SunSystems customers as well as helping us to generate many new business opportunities."
Cocoon's SunSystems customers will also eliminate filing cabinets and reduce paper waste as a result of using Version One's integrated software. Version One's data capture solution, which automatically captures information from imaged invoices, reduces manual data entry by up to 90 per cent, further streamlining the purchase-to-pay process.
Julian Buck, Version One's Managing Director, comments, "Cocoon is the UK's only dedicated re-seller of Infor products and so is a welcome addition to our partner network. We look forward to assisting Cocoon's SunSystems customers to move towards paperless processes and reap the many benefits of our market-leading document management solutions."
