Strategic Advisory Council Highlights: December 2015
On December 10, 2015 MetaSource hosted the second meeting of the newly created Strategic Advisory Council in Philadelphia at the Downtown Marriott. It was a full day of engaging conversation and, if there was one overarching theme to the discussions, it would have to be “Collaboration.”
MetaSource resellers of EMC ApplicationXtender (AX) and Captiva are increasingly collaborating to bring vertical market and niche application expertise to other resellers around the country. From paper dental claims processing from ICS to probate court case management from County Business Systems, our resellers are finding more ways to work together and add value for EMC end-users.
Those having installed AX 8.0 have been impressed by its stability. After putting it through the ringer for three months prior to its launch, the MetaSource team helped to ensure AX 8.0’s stability and we continue to see it offering incredible document management and workflow value for end-users. Being installed in as little as 1-2 days also makes it a compelling alternative to many of the other document management software applications available. New marketing efforts by EMC around AX should help deliver that message to the market.
Taking in Some Local Fare
For lunch, the group ventured over to the famous Reading Terminal Market. This indoor farmer’s market has been a Philly staple since 1892. Most of the group decided to grab a stool at DiNic’s Roast Pork, another Philly standard and past winner of Travel Channel’s “Best Sandwich in America.” Ed Mackin made sure to share with everyone the proper “eating stance” as to avoid any potential expensive dry cleaning bills.
Email & Mobile Document Management
The meeting was also attended by our German EMC reseller partner, inovoo, who has developed two powerful applications that add value to AX. Novo Mail automates the capture of email and attachments, complete with Classification and Data Extraction so they’re fully searchable within AX and can be routed to AX Workflows. Novo Mobile streamlines remote document and data capture in applications like mortgage origination, new employee on-boarding and HR self-service.
More to Come
A lot of solid ideas were generated and the outlook on 2016 from MetaSource and our partners is extremely positive with the excitement around ApplicationXtender 8.0.
