The award means that, for the first time, New South Wales government departments are able to directly purchase Open Text’s leading electronic document and records management software.
Specifically, Open Text is available under the NSW GSAS Panel Contract for Information Asset Management System – Software Application.
The initial three-year panel award is said to include a possible extension to five years.
The award follows a detailed market review of leading vendor EDRMS solutions by the NSW Government.
Open Text also holds a whole-of-government contract to provide electronic document and records management software to the Queensland Government.
“Up until now, the enterprise content management solutions available to New South Wales departments were restricted to niche capabilities in records management and document management,” claimed Greg Mennie, public sector sales director at Open Text.
“The inherent functionality in Open Text’s ECM solutions means that we can now provide New South Wales government agencies with a complete EDRMS platform,” he said.
