Combining records management expertise with market leading technology to deliver a SharePoint records management solution for enterprises
Vancouver, BC, CA – June 18, 2013
Collabware, the only vendor to offer records managers a comprehensive content lifecycle management product for Microsoft SharePoint, has entered into a partnership agreement with Concept Searching, the market leader in semantic metadata generation, auto-classification, and taxonomy management software, and developer of the Smart Content Framework™.
This arrangement brings together Concept Searching’s expertise in semantic metadata generation, auto-classification, and taxonomy management, and Collabware’s experience in end-to-end lifecycle management, delivering advanced records management features and compliance control specifically in the SharePoint environment.
The partnership produces a unique, combined offering that enables SharePoint to be an effective records and information lifecycle management solution for enterprises. It combines Concept Searching’s ability to interrogate content, and identify and appropriately tag documents of record with its flagship product conceptClassifier for SharePoint, and Collabware’s ability to automate processes and provide a transparent experience for end users, with its product Collabware Content Lifecycle Management (CLM) for SharePoint.
Graham Sibley, CEO of Collabware, stated, “We are very excited about our partnership with Concept Searching, as our combined solutions deliver the complete package for tagging and classifying content, and declaring and managing records within SharePoint that enterprises have been calling out for.”
Concept Searching’s intelligent metadata solutions are ideal for improving search, records management, and text analytics. Concept Searching’s concept Classifier product enables Collabware CLM’s rules engine to take over as soon as the content lands in SharePoint. Once the content is in SharePoint, the records-manager-controlled, yet end-user transparent, content lifecycle management processes take effect to ensure compliance.
Martin Garland, President of Concept Searching, commented, “The combination of effective enterprise-wide metadata management with robust document lifecycle management is a unique value proposition for enterprises struggling with their records management initiatives. This solution eliminates the end user burden of tagging, ensures consistency, compliance, adds metadata-based security and full management of the document lifecycle within SharePoint. We are particularly pleased to be partnering with Collabware on this initiative and to be able to offer an industry unique solution for records management in SharePoint.”
Collabware is proud to be the first and only vendor to offer records managers a comprehensive content lifecycle management product for Microsoft SharePoint. From content creation to record destruction, the end-to-end Collabware CLM solution offers a superior user experience, advanced physical and electronic records management features, and complete compliance control – at a much lower cost.

The team is entirely focused on delivering value and helping customers: reduce costs; optimize business processes; adhere to statutory and industry compliance; protect their reputations; improve worker productivity and efficiency; share and exploit knowledge; migrate information from legacy systems; and maximize their investments in Microsoft SharePoint.
