600% Inrease in ECM Adoption - Customers that deploy Shinydrive could see a 600% increase in ECM adoption. derbyGraph.jpg

Shinydrive gives end users the easiest interface to view and edit documents. We have found through both scientific (log analysis) and anecdotal (asking people) that a shared drive (and now a Shinydrive enabled ECM) has at least 100 document views for every edit.

So, that means that we were just not going to reserve or "check out" a document on every document open.

BUT, previous tools for ECM did this, so we felt obliged to give customers the option.

With this in mind we would like you to try the Shinydrive Office Add In for Windows clients.

With the Add-In installed Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, and Excel will prompt the user to "Reserve" on document open, and give the user the option to UnReserve on document close.

Try it today and let us know what you think.
