Bochum. windream, a leading provider of Enterprise Content Management (“ECM”) software, and AI Foundry, a Kodak Alaris business unit — an iconic brand focused on customer digitalization and transformation — have entered into a strategic worldwide agreement that permits AI Foundry to resell windream software globally. In addition, AI Foundry has been appointed windream’s exclusive reseller in North America. This will offer windream an opportunity for further growth beyond its domestic markets in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland.
As part of this partnership, AI Foundry has integrated windream’s technology into its vertical solutions including financial services, insurance, and healthcare. AI Foundry solutions help transform customer enterprise operations by integrating information, people and processes to enable increased insight and improved decision-making. “The transparent use model for windream’s content management is a sea change compared to the burdensome big-player ECM systems or SharePoint,” noted Alan Swahn, vice president of marketing at AI Foundry. “windream’s BPM and ECM technology is very synergistic with our Actionable Intelligence Management platform that includes capture, document classification, data extraction, and secure collaboration.”
windream to date, has concentrated its sales efforts in European countries, which has yielded more than 2,350 customers and 220,000 users.
