Documentum, the leading provider of enterprise content management and a division of EMC Corporation (NYSE: EMC) has announced that SIG Holding (SIG), a global provider of packaging materials, equipment and services, has extended its use of Documentum. It has expanded Documentums Enterprise Content Management (ECM) platform across the whole company and deployed Documentum Digital Asset Manager (DAM) for marketing content management and Documentum eRoom for collaboration.
SIG Holding employs more than 9,000 employees and consists of two divisions: SIG Combibloc and SIG Beverages. SIG Combibloc originally selected Documentum for distributed content management and integration with its SAP systems. Most recently, SIG implemented the Documentum DAM solution to manage centrally more than 30,000 corporate photographs and images, known as the SIG Gallery. The company also implemented Documentum eRoom to help facilitate global project collaboration among disparate teams.
Prior to the implementation of the Documentum DAM solution, employee requests for images and photos were simultaneously sent to multiple locations throughout the organisation and employees would duplicate time-consuming searching and scanning efforts. With the Documentum DAM solution, SIG has dramatically reduced the time it takes to fulfil an image request. All internal and external employees and partners are able to access content quickly and easily through SIGs Internet and Intranet sites, ensuring consistent branding by enabling information sharing among employees and external partners, image transformation to various formats and content re-use.
For more efficient team collaboration, SIG implemented Documentum eRoom for collaboration, making it available to all employees around the world. Using Documentum, distributed teams are able to work together in a secure, collaborative environment, efficiently manage projects and share results, experiences and best practices.
Until now, there was no central, uniform system for managing SIGs photos, images and historical archives. One of our goals was to establish a common platform for the management and use of all company images to help maintain a consistent corporate identity and to reduce the time and costs associated with searching for images. We have achieved this with the Documentum DAM solution, explained Karsten Lenzen, Documentum Project Manager at SIG IT. In addition, many company projects will benefit from the eRoom implementation. Documentum eRoom is an effective collaboration tool and is very popular throughout the company.
As with many of our customers, SIG standardised on and deployed Documentum throughout its worldwide organisation based on their initial success with Documentum, said Dave DeWalt, president of the Documentum division of EMC. We look forward to continuing our relationship with SIG, helping them reduce costs, enhance operational efficiencies and collaborate more effectively with enterprise teams.
