(Marketwire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) COLUMBUS, OH -- (Marketwire) -- 05/03/12 --
GlobalWise Investments, Inc. (OTCBB: GWIV) (OTCQB: GWIV) (www.GlobalWiseInvestments.com) and its wholly owned subsidiary Intellinetics, Inc., 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, today provide an update to shareholders as well as announce global expansion to Latin America.
The management of GlobalWise thought it appropriate at this time to update shareholders on the Company's recent accomplishments, and the competitive advantages of its technology and the successes the Company is having in developing a strong partner/reseller network.
GlobalWise is a leading-edge technology company focused on the rapidly growing Enterprise Content Management (ECM) industry, which Gartner predicts will exceed $5.7 billion by 2014 with a compound annual growth rate of 10.1%. Through its cloud-based Intellivue™ ECM product line and unique Channel / OEM distribution model, Intellinetics, a wholly owned subsidiary of GlobalWise, is well positioned to dominate in the underserved small-to-mid sized business ECM marketplace.
Intellivue™, the company's flagship platform, offers substantial savings to any size organization in virtually any industry by offering them immediate access to all of their structured and unstructured (i.e. Word documents, JPEGs, Images, Audio Files, Video Files, Email w/ Attachments, Fax, Hard-copy documents, etc.) corporate information securely, at their desktop or mobile devices (i.e. iPad or iPhone technologies) via the Web. Utilizing this system flexibility, Intellivue™ has seen great success in the following target vertical markets 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; they include:
Accounts Payable Automotive Dealership Education K-12 Financial Services Healthcare Higher Education Human Resources Law Enforcement Corrections Legal Manufacturing Distribution Public Sector Retail Special Education
Through these solution templates, the Intellinetics platform defines a new industry benchmark and game-changing approach by combining advanced virtualization and automated content management with an open and service-oriented architecture using Web services. The Company provides strategies, tactics and technologies to manage paper and digital assets from capture to long-term archive, 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.
IBM Market Insights predicts adoption of cloud computing to grow by 26% CAGR between 2010 and 2013.
The Company's ECM service is delivered to customers via five unique delivery models that cover the full spectrum of business needs: Cloud/SaaS (Software as a Service); Hardware Vendor Integrated Service; Software Vendor Integrated Service; Premise (Client-Server); and Hybrid (Premise & Cloud/SaaS). This diversity provides advanced security and privacy features with an on-demand structure for businesses in the large, underserved small-to-mid sized business markets.
About the Company's Channel Partners
Each successful channel partner will add to the revenue of the Company without a significant increase in fixed expenses. While revenue from each successful partner will vary from $50,000 to $900,000 annually, the average channel partner is expected to grow annual revenue by $150,000 - $200,000.
GlobalWise added 14 new channel partner agreements throughout 2011 and expects the growth of its reseller program to accelerate substantially in 2012. By implementing a channel sales model with strategic partners who are already selling software solutions into an established and trusted client base with strategic target markets, the Company is now able to rapidly access a much larger universe of potential clients. The Company anticipates that new channel partnerships will drive triple-digit growth for the next several years.
On April 25, 2012, the company signed its first global expansion partner, SOIN Integrales (www.soin.co.cr), which is headquartered out of Costa Rica. SOIN is a 20+year integrator with a core practice of reselling SAP, Oracle and Sybase ERP systems in both the public and private sectors. Intellinetics will be their only exclusive ECM offering to Latin America. The initial Intellivue™ solution and product launch will start initially in Mexico, Costa Rica, Panama, El Salvador and Nicaragua.
