KOM Networks and DOCS ETC… Inc Sign Partnership Agreement
Ottawa, ON Canada – August 7, 2000
KOM Networks, a leading innovator of storage networking and virtualization software, today announced a partnership with DOCS ETC...Inc (DEI), an end-to-end information and document management company. The companies plan to work together, using their complementary technologies, to offer customers complete storage management solutions.
The partnership includes both technical development and marketing initiatives focused on optimally integrating KOM's versatile suite of products with DEI's electronic scanning and data management hardware and software. DEI initially implemented OptiStorm® , KOM's powerful optical storage software, in response to a customer need for a complete reorganization of its data storage infrastructure.
OptiStorm® combines all the advantages of optical storage while retaining the access, convenience and functionality of hard disk drives. Operating on Windows NT/ 2000 platforms, OptiStorm® integrates into the operating system so seamlessly that users are completely unaware that they are accessing and storing data on optical drives. DEI chose OptiStorm® because of its unsurpassed ability to deliver long-term data integrity in a user-friendly fashion.
DEI is a systems integrator that provides their customers with innovative and efficient workflow automation solutions. DEI achieves this by converting inefficient, obsolete and incompatible processes, whether they are paper-based or electronic, to fully integrated electronic systems. This requires a variety of hardware and software tools that are configured to each customer's needs.
"I am extremely pleased that DOCS ETC has come on board with as a partner," stated KOM Networks C.E.O., Dr. Taher Shaath. By working together with DOCS ETC we will not only strengthen our position and reach in the marketplace but also build on our ability to deliver end-to-end solutions to the widest possible customer base."
