Last September at the EASY World it could already be clearly seen and felt. EASY SOFTWARE AG is on the move – and indeed in fundamental and diverse ways. A dynamic which is also reflected in their future solutions.
No wonder that some 80 EASY partners from the whole of Germany travelled with high expectations to Mülheim at the end of January for the partner information day, while several other participants tuned in as “virtual” guests using live streaming. Because on the agenda were, among other things, the first details about the ECM Suite and – watch out! – the ECM Suite Cloud. Our guests on site and on the network were not disappointed. EASY unveiled details of the construction, distribution and marketing of the new EASY ECM Suite, which will begin in the middle of the year.
ECM Suite: One Function – One Solution
The ECM Suite is the centrepiece of the future customer approach of EASY and its partners. Specifically it provides an efficient solution for, among other things, archiving, workflow, capturing, classification and extraction, reading, collaboration and filing. With the new EASY ECM Suite EASY reduces substantially the complexity of the portfolio – and as a result the effort required for installation, maintenance and upkeep.
The App model
Fewer applications, fewer clients, fewer installation routines. In their place an optimally networked and coordinated suite that covers everything which EASY customers need. Consequently the new suite represents a quantum leap for the software house in matters to do with usability. Everything should be as simple as using a mobile App.
How does news of the ECM Suite successfully reach the customers? Here again EASY came up with something, and presented during the second lecture of the day the basic facts related to a campaign. So apart from a sales box with white papers, marketing materials, demonstration applications and a new ROI calculator, there will also be events, webinars, and calls on the subject among other things.
ECM Suite also from the Cloud
When it comes to distribution EASY is also making itself fit and ready for the demands of digital transformation. The EASY ECM Suite is the first EASY product to be also available mainly as a Cloud service. Easy is introducing three corresponding services one step at a time. They promise an extremely fast time-to-market and offer flexible and usage-based billing and licensing models.
Willy Cremers, a member of the EASY SOFTWARE AG Management Board, summed up pointedly at the end of the day: “The ECM Suite is our new main line. We have invested heavily in it in order to offer our customers a better product. With the EASY ECM Suite we are walking straight and directly down our own road – into a new future”.
