GlobalWise Investments, Inc. (GWIV) Releases Shareholder Update on Recent Accomplishments and Reports on Expansion to Latin America
GlobalWise Investments and its wholly owned subsidiary Intellinetics, a leading-edge technology company focused on the design, implementation, and management of cloud-based Enterprise Content Management (“ECM”) systems in both the public and private sectors, yesterday after the closing bell released an update to shareholders as well announced promising global expansion into Latin America.
GlobalWise is a cutting-edge technology company determined to capitalize on the rapidly growing Enterprise Content Management (ECM) industry, predicted by Gartner to expand beyond $5.7 billion by 2014 with a compound annual growth rate of 10.1%. Intellinetics is incredibly well positioned to be a leader in the underserved small-to-mid sized business marketplace with its cloud-based Intellivue™ ECM product line and distinctive Channel/OEM distribution model.
Intellinetics’ flagship platform, Interllivue™, offers massive cost reductions to any size organization in nearly every industry by providing instant access to all of their corporate information securely at their desktop, or even their mobile devices, using the Internet. Through the utilization of this flexibility and freedom, Intellivue™ has experienced great success in the target markets listed below by building “on-demand” process solution templates that are pre-configured with 90% “best-practice” for immediate economic and improved operational impact by enabling “quicker-time-to-value” and increased client adoption.
• Accounts Payable
• Automotive Dealership
• Education K-12
• Financial Services
• Higher Education
• Human Resources
• Law Enforcement Corrections
• Manufacturing Distribution
• Public Sector
• Special Education
The implementation of these solution templates has allowed the Intellinetics platform to define a new industry standard and innovative approach through the combination of advanced virtualization and automated content management with an open and service oriented architecture using Web services. Intellinetics offers strategies, technologies, and tactics for paper and digital asset management, from capture to long-term archive. All of these services are provided without the need for manual processes conducted by a full-time employee. In short, the company offers process efficiencies on their Intellivue™ ECM platform versus selling features and functions of ECM technologies.
The potential expansion of cloud computing is evidenced by IBM Market Insights’ prediction that the adoption of cloud computing will grow by 26% CAGR between 2010 and 2013.
About Intellinetics’ Channel Partners
The addition of each successful channel partner increases revenue for Intellinetics without a significant addition to the company’s fixed expenses. Revenue from each successful partner will vary between $50,000 and $900,000 annually, but the average channel partner is expected to increase annual revenue by $150,000 to $200,000.
GlobalWise added 14 strategic channel partner agreements throughout 2011 and believes the growth of its reseller program will accelerate significantly in 2012. The implementation of a channel sales model with strategic partners currently selling software into their own proven and trusted client base allows the company to quickly access a considerably larger and reliable client base. The company anticipates that the success of the channel partner system will drive triple-digit growth for the next several years.
The company signed its first global expansion partner, SOIN Integrales, headquartered in Costa Rica, on April 25, 2012, making Intellinetics their only exclusive ECM offering to Latin America. SOIN is a 20+year integrator that focuses on reselling SAP, Oracle, and Sybase ERP systems in the public and private sectors. The initial Intellivue™ solution and product launch will start in Mexico, Costa Rica, Panama, El Salvador, and Nicaragua.
In addition to the first step in GlobalWise’s global expansion, the company has also signed multiple agreements over the past several months, including:
