In an effort to strengthen its Enterprise Content Management (ECM) offering, Microsoft Gold Certified Partner, Intervate has acquired the rights to distribute and resell KnowledgeLake's document imaging and capture suite of products.

Every organisation processes paper based documents on a daily basis. Each one of these documents represents an information asset or potential legal liability. Unfortunately integrating paper dependent processes into a company's ECM solution has traditionally been a complex exercise and the domain of costly and proprietary best-of-breed providers.

KnowledgeLake is a US based company that provides document imaging and capture products for the Microsoft SharePoint platform. The products are tightly integrated into the Microsoft Office suite at both the client and server level and provide users with a familiar and easy to use interface.

"As a leader in the ECM market in South Africa, we are constantly looking for products that extend the capabilities of the solutions that we deliver to our customers," says Migal van As, CEO of Intervate. "KnowledgeLake's proven capabilities, integration into the SharePoint platform and affordable pricing makes the solution perfect for mid-market and enterprise customers looking to maximise their existing investment into Microsoft technologies, while still benefitting from best-of-breed capabilities."

The software from KnowledgeLake includes three key components, which can be used together or independently:

* KnowledgeLake Connect is a desktop application that provides the ability to save or 'release' documents into SharePoint in a single step. Whether at point of capture, from within Outlook, or when 'Sending To', this application provides an easy to use single sign on across predefined sites as well as assists with capture of document meta data.

* KnowledgeLake Capture Suite 2008 is an integrated set of products for scanning, indexing and saving documents to a SharePoint. It makes allowances for whether the user is in the corporate headquarters or in a branch and other remote offices.

* KnowledgeLake Imaging Server 2008 is comprised of seven components that transform a SharePoint repository into a fully functional document imaging system. The Imaging Server eliminates the costs and challenges of using paper documents, as well as the limitations it puts on customers' business processes.

"Intervate has extensive SharePoint knowledge plus a wealth of experience implementing document imaging solutions," says Bob Bueltmann, Vice President of Business Development at KnowledgeLake. "As such, they are the ideal partner to take our product suite to market in South Africa."

Intervate is now in a position to sell and distribute the KnowledgeLake products. The products can be seen in action at Microsoft TechEd taking place in Durban from the 3rd to the 6th of July.
