OpenText continues to grow with IGC acquisition

09 Jan 15

OpenText, a company specialising in Enterprise Information Management (EIM), has announced it has acquired Informative Graphics Corporation (IGC), a developer of viewing, annotation, redaction and publishing commercial software.

IGC technologies has been an OpenText partner for more than a decade, and following this acquisition will be further integrated into the ECM product portfolio and extended into other OpenText Suites.

The software company was founded in 1990 and offers a full suite of software to help organisations securely view, share, redact and transform documents and images including CAD drawings.

Products released by IGC focus on security and helping with common requirements in complex centric processes. They are integrated with the most prevalent enterprise content management (ECM) systems and leading eDiscovery applications.

The acquisition increases OpenText’s capabilities for secure access to any content, on any device, on premises and in the cloud. It also enables OpenText to extend the reach of IGC offerings to OpenText Customers globally.

OpenText plans to grow the relationship with its new ECM, Engineering Solutions and eDiscovery partners and their customers.

Already they have deployed more than 250 joint customers and more than 300,000 seats of Brava! for OpenText Content Server.

“With a proven record of success as an OpenText partner, we are excited to welcome the IGC team into our company,” says Mark Barrenechea, OpenText president and chief executive officer.

“As customers make the shift to the digital workplace and the cloud, document viewing and mark-up on any device will enable organisations to leverage their information and drive growth and success in their organisations,” he says.
