Esker and FileNet forge partnership to enhance enterprise content management capabilities for SAP customers through document automation

Derby, UK, May 25, 2005 – Esker Software, the leading provider of intelligently automated document delivery solutions and services, has joined FileNet’s ValueNet Program as a technology ISV partner. The partnership is designed to bring together the document automation functions of Esker DeliveryWare with the Enterprise Content Management (ECM) capabilities of FileNet P8 to provide SAP customers with enhanced document retrieval capabilities.

Esker DeliveryWare integrates with FileNet’s P8 Application Connector for SAP to capture key indexing fields from documents related to SAP-solution based transactions. This information is then passed to FileNet P8 where users can access critical SAP documents by enhanced search criteria.

“We are glad to become a FileNet Technology Partner,” said Mitch Baxter, Executive Vice President Business Development, Esker. “We see great synergies between our solutions and know that together we’ll be providing SAP customers with functionality that will make their day-to-day lives easier.”

Both Esker and FileNet are SAP Solution Providers with SAP-certified technology. FileNet recently announced that it achieved SAP certification for integration of its new J2EE-based Application Connector with the SAP NetWeaver(TM) open integration and application platform, integration that provides access to SAP documents stored in FileNet P8 directly from within the SAP user interface.

“With Esker DeliveryWare we can offer SAP customers yet another way to access and view key SAP documents,” said Martyn Christian, chief marketing officer at FileNet. “We are focused on providing rich functionality to SAP customers and are glad to partner with Esker because they share that same goal. SAP customers can benefit from working with two best-in-class solutions.”

In addition to enhanced document retrieval, FileNet P8 users can also take advantage of Esker DeliveryWare to manage the delivery of documents from FileNet P8 via fax, physical mail, e-mail, print, web publishing, mobile message and XML.

“With Esker DeliveryWare, FileNet and SAP customers can utilise a single platform to facilitate and manage all of their document traffic including documents coming from SAP into FileNet and from FileNet to customers, employees and business partners,” said Baxter.
