<p>Sydney, 20 October 2008 - Open Text™ (NASDAQ: OTEX, TSX: OTC), a global leader in enterprise content management (ECM), has been awarded panel contract status by the New South Wales Government to provide an Information Asset Management System (IAMS) to government departments and agencies throughout the state.</p>
<p>The award means that, for the first time, New South Wales government departments are able to directly purchase Open Text’s leading electronic document and records management software.</p>
<p>Specifically, Open Text is available under the NSW GSAS Panel Contract for Information Asset Management System – Software Application. The initial three-year panel award also includes a possible extension to five years.</p>
<p>New South Wales government departments will now benefit from Open Text’s integrated electronic document and records management system (EDRMS) features which include provision for document management, records management, advanced workflow, collaboration, archiving and imaging, digital asset management, business process management, web content management and information search and retrieval.</p>
<p>The award for Open Text follows a rigorous process in which the NSW Government conducted a detailed market review of leading vendor EDRMS solutions before selecting Open Text against extensive functional requirements.</p>
<p>Earlier this year, Open Text became the first supplier to achieve full compliance with the demanding VERS (Victorian Electronic Records Strategy) records management standard.</p>
<p>Open Text also holds a whole-of-government contract to provide electronic document and records management software to the Queensland Government.</p>
<p>Open Text’s Public Sector Sales Director, Greg Mennie, said, “We are delighted to have been selected for contract panel status by the New South Wales government as well as the Common User Agreement for EDRMS in Western Australia.</p>
<p>“Up until now, the enterprise content management solutions available to New South Wales departments were restricted to niche capabilities in records management and document management. The inherent functionality in Open Text’s ECM solutions means that we can now provide New South Wales government agencies with a complete EDRMS platform. Our track record of expertise in providing for a return in investment for public sector organisations has now been extended with this latest panel award.”</p>
