In 1997 I started a Document Management company focusing on selling, implementing and supporting Documentum. Through the years that business worked with Livelink, FileNet, Hummingbird and several others. Ultimately we purchased a software company and continued advancing our own Document Management product. We did some good work, for some really big companies North America wide.
After a short break, I started another Document Management company, this time focusing on mid-sized businesses with OnBase, and then SharePoint. We ran imaging services, excelled at workflow and system integration, and also ran one of the world's first Document Management hosting services.
In the early 2000’s, it was a difficult road developing a business in a field that was still inventing itself. I learned a lot about what works, and what doesn't, in terms of serving clients properly, while still trying to turn a profit. But the industry is mature now, especially as Document Management and Collaboration become mainstream within Office 365 and SharePoint. While there are still many pitfalls to be avoided, there is also a great deal of opportunity to be seized. The time is now!
The Where the Money Lives e-Guide was written for business owners, leaders and other managers who are either running, or considering running, a Document Management business or division. I hope you'll benefit from the lessons I've learned over the years, as the future of collaborative and organized work requires all of us to up our game, and help millions of people make the digital transformation to a new way of working.
