<p>· Delivering industry-specific ECM solutions to clients when designing, developing and implementing technology and business solutions to better manage the entire information lifecycle.</p>

<p>· Improving processes and reducing costs by enhancing SAP systems that manage major enterprise-wide business processes. Open Text solutions will include content lifecycle management for use with SAP to process, manage and archive documents that flow through SAP systems. Also, Open Text’s Vendor Invoice Management for use with SAP solutions, which helps companies reduce costs in accounts payable.</p>
