eSignLive Joins IBM ECM ValueNet Business Partner Program for IBM Enterprise Content Management

October 10, 2007

Montreal, QC, October 11, 2007 — Silanis Technology has joined the IBM ECM ValueNet Business Partner Program that will allow customers of both companies to combine ApproveIt®, the leading electronic signature solution, with IBM’s Enterprise Content Management solutions, to accelerate operations, improve service and reduce costs by keeping business processes electronic.

With the addition of Silanis e-signatures to the IBM ECM ValueNet Business Partner Program, IBM's customers can derive even greater benefit from their content management infrastructure by enabling business applications to stay electronic.

“E-signatures bridge the gaps between systems and applications," said Richard L. Warren, CEO, Silanis. “Without this ability, processes will still fall to paper whenever a signature is required.”

As more business processes move online, there is greater need for electronic content management (ECM) solutions to capture, manage and store data efficiently. Likewise, as high-value, regulated electronic transactions like consumer lending become more common, e-signatures are necessary to maintain compliance and enforceability. For these reasons, organizations often implement ECM and e-signature solutions together.

Silanis solutions provide the best possible electronic evidence by capturing the information needed to demonstrate signing intent if a transaction is ever contested.

IBM's ECM ValueNet Business Partner Program provides a set of Web-based tools to allow the industry’s top service partners, independent software vendors and technology partners to network and collaborate on delivering a vast range of services and solutions to IBM customers worldwide.
