CumulusPro is proud to announce a new partnership with EAD (Empresa de Arquivo de Documentação, SA) of Portugal

Luzern, Switzerland, 1 October 2015 - As Portugal’s first and largest service provider for processing and archiving of documents, EAD manages more than 30 million documents annually across four operation centres in Portugal, Madeira, and the Azores. With over 800 multi-national clients around the world, from a variety of industries, EAD’s partnership with CumulusPro gives it an opportunity to expand its capabilities with more effective and cost-efficient methods of archive and record management.

By integrating components of CumulusPro’s cloud-based solutions into its existing cloud-based record management system (RWS- Read, Write & Share), EAD empowers its customers and mobile workforce to capture documents and upload them directly to its repository. With an automated information validation process, the time taken – and therefore, cost of operation – from document submission to approval is significantly reduced.

Joachim Froning from CumulusPro believes this partnership comes at an opportune time, when customer engagement and satisfaction is fundamental to the success of business: “We are proud to work with a company like EAD that truly understands what it means to be in the age of the customer. We look forward to working together to bring new document capture and customer engagement solutions, not just to EAD’s customers directly, but also their mobile workforce all around the world.”

Paulo Veiga concurs: “CumulusPro’s forward thinking enables us to get ahead of a trend that can only grow more significantly in the years to come. Their range of cloud-based solutions, when coupled with ours, strengthens our current business offering and opens new doors for us to engage with existing customers and attract new ones.”

By combining EAD’s core competency of document archiving and record management with CumulusPro’s cloud-based solutions of engagement, this partnership is another step in building CumulusPro’s rich ecosystem.

The emergence of ecosystems and virtual communities is one of the most exciting developments for software companies in the Web 2.0 space. For CumulusPro, this means building a rich ecosystem of technology vendors, service partners and user communities on its cloud-based collaboration platform – with the opportunity to design its offerings around the latest cloud technologies, and provide maximum value to customers.

Partners like EAD benefit from the ability to easily integrate, interact and interoperate with CumulusPro, with one another, and with their customers so as to take electronic document processing and customer engagement to greater new levels of efficiency.
