Our team was recently at an OpenText event showcasing our Shinydocs solution. Secure document collaboration was the order of the day but our tight integration with OpenText’s Content Server is what consistently caught customer’s eyes.
Organizations bring on solutions like OpenText to capture corporate knowledge, mitigate risk, implement records retention policies, and meet compliance requirements. With over 50 thousand organizations relying on OpenText, they are the undisputed world-wide leader in enterprise information management.
These enterprise investments can come at the cost of usability, driving knowledge workers to creating workarounds in order to get things done. They’re not actively looking to undermine policy. Employees want to be good corporate citizens while working to reduce the friction in their day to day work.
So how do you strike a balance between the security needs of the organization with the flexibility users have become accustomed to? Introducing Shinydrive.
Shinydrive removes the usability barriers Content Server can throw up. A typical workflow sees users forced to navigate down through extensive layers of web folders and sub folders, checking out documents to the desktop, editing them, possibly emailing them out to resources outside the firewall, maybe throwing them in Dropbox, and then uploading the completed files.
With Shinydrive working with your Content Server is as easy as navigating your own drive with Windows Explorer or the Mac Finder. Save from any application directly into Content Server. Right click files on your desktop to manage permissions, major/minor versions, categories and attributes, or kick off a workflow. Drag and drop right into Content Server whether you’re talking about single files or gigs of data complete with folders and subfolders.
It’s like having a My Documents folder for your enterprise. You may never open up a web browser again to work on corporate information.
