Intellinetics’ flagship solution, named IntelliCloud™, helps small to medium sized enterprises reduce operational costs and increase document accessibility and security.

Intellinetics’ flagship platform, Intellivue, defines a new industry benchmark and game-changing approach by combining advanced virtualization & automated content management with an open and service-oriented architecture using Web services. Leading hardware vendors such as Lexmark, Samsung, CVS/pharmacy, DELL and others are leveraging the Intellinetics model by directly integrating their hardware into the Intellivue™ cloud platform.

GlobalWise Investments, Inc. (GWIV) Targeting Unmet Needs of Small-to-Medium Enterprises with Cutting-Edge ECM Solutions

Friday, April 11th, 2014

Many organizations are overwhelmed by today’s digital demands. Today’s information explosion has given rise to new standards for organization-wide efficiency and effectiveness, and many stakeholders are still acclimating themselves to the changes in technology and their applications.

With as much as 85% of their critical content trapped as unstructured data, organizations need to regain control over their workflow to avoid redundancy, security, and compliance issues. Through its wholly owned subsidiary Intellinetics, technology company GlobalWise Investments offers cutting-edge enterprise content management solutions (ECM solutions) that fill this gap. GlobalWise Investments’ content management software, deployed via the cloud or at a client’s premises, enables documents to flow freely when and where they need to. Organizations then become much more able to manage their data and documents, with the increased operational efficiency and convenience given by the ECM software. The software enjoys strong applicability– it can be customized to fit a client’s specific needs, making it valuable to organizations across a comprehensive range of sectors.

Intellivue™, the company’s flagship platform, offers substantial savings to any size organization in virtually any industry. The platform offers organizations immediate, secure access to all of their corporate information, at the desktop or via the Web. Clients are also bolstered by the expertise and savvy of GlobalWise Investments’ combined management team, which has over 150 years of ECM industry experience. GlobalWise Investments itself has been a pioneer in the ECM industry for 20 years.

While other players in the ECM industry focus on Tier 1 and Tier 2 markets, GlobalWise Investments has been focusing on the unmet needs of enterprises in Tier 3 and Tier 4 markets. Aside from being underserved, these markets are compliance-heavy, and their need for effective ECM solutions is great. GlobalWise Investments’ cloud computing software offers a range of benefits to these smaller-sized enterprises, including convenience, data security, cost-effectiveness, and environmentally friendly content management capabilities. Many leading hardware vendors have seen the game-changing value that GlobalWise investments’ flagship platform extends: Lexmark, Samsung, CVS/pharmacy, and DELL are just a few among many vendors that have directly integrated their hardware into the Intellivue™ cloud platform.

In 2014, the ECM industry is expected to top $5.7 billion. As the ECM industry continues to grow, GlobalWise Investments looks to strengthen its value to clients as it continues to build its market leadership.

GlobalWise Investments, Inc. (GWIV) Posts FY13 Financial Results

Monday, March 31st, 2014

GlobalWise Investments and its technology-focused wholly owned subsidiary, Intellinetics, jointly reported the company’s financial results for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2013.

Total revenues for the 12 months ended December 31, 2013, were $1.5 million, a decrease compared to $2.7 million for the same period in 2012. The company attributes the reduction primarily to decreases in revenues from consulting services and software licenses with and without professional services.

Overall gross margins of 62 percent for full-year 2013 represent a decrease of 2 percent compared to gross margins of 64 percent for the comparable 12 months of the year prior. GlobalWise reported a net operating loss of $2.1 million, an increase of 8 percent compared to a loss of $1.9 million in full-year 2012.

Matthew Chretien, president and CEO of GlobalWise, detailed Intellinetics’ performance over the year and provided insight into the new business model’s focus on long-term recurring revenue versus sizable upfront fees.

“In 2013, Intellinetics made significant efforts into refining and re-designing every detail of our channel partner strategy from a technology, process, tools, business model and market positioning perspective,” Chretien stated in the news release. “This process consumed significant time and resources across the board but was crucial to improving revenue-generating effectiveness. … MarketCommand™ is a go-to-market approach that will become the de-facto standard for solution delivery into the SMB market, whose buyers place a premium on simplicity, minimizing disruption, and affordability when considering new business solutions.”

Chretien continued, “While feedback has been positive and new orders have been received under MarketCommand™, moving from premise-based one-time sales to the new low-cost, cloud-based entry point for recurring sales is a difficult transition from a revenue perspective. We certainly experienced that revenue contraction in 2013. However, as the number of active subscribers continues to grow, recurring revenue increases. As we certify other software providers to participate in MarketCommand™, we can benefit from additional revenue share from solutions such as device monitoring, power management and remote network management which can leverage the same infrastructure as IntelliCloud™ for activation.”

Moving forward the company will focus on recruiting high-quality resellers. As GlobalWise strengthens its reseller base, more IntelliCloud™ customers will activate and boost recurring revenue generation as storage consumption grows. According to Chretien, already several new companies have lined up to partner with the company under MarketCommand™ in Q2 of 2014.

GlobalWise Investments Inc. (GWIV) Introduces New Revenue Streams

Thursday, March 27th, 2014

GlobalWise is opening doors for strong revenue growth with its MarketCommand partner program.

For over two decades, GlobalWise and its wholly-owned subsidiary Intellinetics have provided advanced electronic content management services to public and private companies in the United States and Canada. GlobalWise’s offerings allow large and small companies to better manage their corporate information. They also deliver huge time and money savings to these clients by supplying them with immediate and protected access to their mission-critical information online and on premises.

Now, GlobalWise has introduced MarketCommand—a partner program dedicated to dealers in the print and imaging field that will bring in added revenue from the SMB office automation market. The program is being offered after the thorough analysis of in-depth feedback from GlobalWise’s first-generation industry partners regarding what business, market positioning, technical and service changes were considered necessary in a robust document-centric business solution.

MarketCommand presents GlobalWise’s cloud-based IntelliCloud platform as a feature of the multi-function devices sold by the dealers in the program. With MarketCommand, IntelliCloud’s solutions catalog is accessible via customizable icons from the respective device panel.

MarketCommand alleviates the complexity in sales, operations, and service delivery as well as offers the type of simple document solutions practice that the company’s stakeholders indicated a need for. Consequently, the partner program results in more robust device sales, additional IntelliCloud activation fees and recurring revenue from customers using more than the initial capacity they purchased which, in turn, augments the respective partner’s revenue.

Initially, GlobalWise planned to restrict access to MarketCommand to the market leaders in the regions it serves but, thanks to the positive industry feedback it has collected so far, it now intends to offer access to a wider set of program partners in coming months.

GlobalWise Investments, Inc. (GWIV) Turns Data Overload into Dollars

GlobalWise Investments, Inc. (GWIV) MarketCommand™ Program Featured on The VAR Guy Blog’s Channel Program Roundup

Thursday, January 16th, 2014

In an article dated January 9, 2014, author Charlene O’Hanlon made note of some recent updates in channel partner news and information. The recently unveiled brainchild of GlobalWise Investments’ wholly owned cloud subsidiary, Intellinetics, Inc., the MarketCommand™ program was highlighted in the article by Ms. O’Hanlon.

Noting that the feature is “a new channel partner program to drive Intellinetics’ cloud- and premises-based enterprise content management systems through print and imaging resellers”, the author also said that the intention behind its design and release was to provide print and imaging vendors with a revenue-generating source that is based on GlobalWise Investments’ proprietary Intelli-Cloud™ platform. The cloud solutions company is targeting the burgeoning enterprise content management industry, which Gartner Technology estimates will reach $5.7 billion by 2014’s year-end and then compound annually at 9.5%.

As data management continues to take more of a center stage in business operations across all sectors, more companies are opting to store their data in the cloud. Cloud-based data storage and management is becoming increasingly attractive on account of its security as well as affordability—with the elimination of a company’s need to no longer rely on on-site servers for data management, a company saves money on software updates, installation and maintenance fees, equipment update costs, and more. For client convenience, however, GlobalWise Investments also offers on-site enterprise content management options, so that it is not limited in its market reach.

The company’s Intelli-Cloud™ platform is powered by its flagship product, Intellivue™. With Intelli-Cloud™, businesses are able to access over 200 on-demand workflow solution templates for document management and enhance their operations and workflows; the platform is designed for the needs of small-sized and medium-sized businesses across a multitude of industries. The platform is also affordable, as it only requires a cost-effective monthly subscription fee.

Developed according to the collective feedback of GlobalWise Investments’ first-generation industry partners, the MarketCommand™ program incorporates the partners’ thoughts on what business, technical, market positioning, and service improvements were needed for greater effectiveness and impact. With the program, as Ms. O’Hanlon notes, dealers can “increase their revenue from stronger device sales and IntelliCloud activation fees”.

While many enterprise content management industry-based companies target large corporations as clients, GlobalWise Investments puts a spin on this strategy and targets small-sized and medium-sized businesses instead. These markets’ needs are largely unserviced, leaving a sizable gap for the company to fill, and many vendors have recognized the innovation and value of Intellivue, with leading vendors such as Lexmark, Samsung, CVS/pharmacy, and DELL having integrated their hardware into the platform.

Backed by the insights of an experienced management team with decades of industry involvement, GlobalWise Investments looks to become a strong player in the growing enterprise content management marketplace.

According to today’s press release, the MarketCommand™ program reflects a tremendous collaborative effort from the GlobalWise Investments team. The company gained in-depth feedback from its first generation industry partners to determine what business, technical, market positioning, and service changes were needed to build a robust Intellinetics-based document solutions practice. Every aspect of MarketCommand™ reflects the cumulative feedback from partners.

The MarketCommand™ program cleverly delivers document-centric business solutions as a feature of the multi-function devices partners already sell. With MarketCommand™, IntelliCloud™’s solutions catalog is available via configurable icons from the device panel. MarketCommand™ is initially being made available only to market leaders within the geographies served. GlobalWise Investments will begin adding select partners to the program in Q1 2014. Initial industry feedback has been very positive, and the company anticipates expanding to a wider set of program partners in the coming months.

GlobalWise Investments, Inc. (GWIV) is Poised to Expand Its Share of the Small and Medium-Sized Enterprise Market

Thursday, December 19th, 2013

Outdated content management processes can leave businesses at a competitive disadvantage in the lightning-fast pace of the digital age. GlobalWise Investments, via its subsidiary Intellinetics, is a pioneering technology company that designs, implements, and manages industry-leading Enterprise Content Management (ECM) solutions for this age.

With the company’s flagship platform Intellivue, clients can access and manage the contents of virtually anything that can be digitized in their enterprise (scanned documents, spreadsheets, emails, photos, audio files, video tapes) from any device (smartphone, tablet, laptop, personal computer) and from anywhere in the world. By combining automatic content management, superior virtualization, and an open, service-oriented design that uses Web services, Intellivue typifies a revolutionary solution and a new industry benchmark for ECM end-users in the public and private sectors.

GlobalWise’s cutting-edge solutions and open, cloud-based computing software are used by major hardware vendors that appreciate the value of ECM, and the company continues to capture additional customers with constant technological advances like its new IntellivueGX Capture Module.

This software release extends GlobalWise’s reach into the small and medium-sized enterprise (SME) market. The new capabilities are expected to enable more content to be captured faster from the company’s IntelliCloud users, creating more value for the end-user businesses while driving more incremental revenue from the firm’s service delivery. Licensing fees are also more affordable with this feature than with other tools, creating an appealing option for the price-sensitive SME market targeted by most of GlobalWise’s channel partners.

However, GlobalWise is not satisfied with simply being a participant in this fast growing ECM industry, which is expected to exceed $5.7 billion by 2014. To maintain a competitive lead, GlobalWise also offers the most up-to-date and promising data storage solutions to small and mid-sized businesses in order to capture more of the virtually untapped, compliance-heavy markets they operate in.

GlobalWise Investments, Inc. (GWIV) Targets Untapped Markets with ECM Solutions

Friday, December 13th, 2013

Today’s information age is fast-paced and demanding, and businesses and organizations are finding it difficult to match its pace. Technological challenges such as unstructured data have been found to keep businesses of all sizes from optimized efficiency and effectiveness, ultimately resulting in duplicative work efforts, sluggish work processes, reduced profitability, and decreased overall organizational effectiveness.

GlobalWise Investments, a leading-edge technology solutions company, fills this gap by providing cutting-edge enterprise content management solutions (ECM). The company’s content management software helps businesses organize their unstructured data and streamline their work processes so that they may operate faster, leaner, and smarter. ECM solutions represent a clear answer to the data management problems that businesses face, as evidenced by the numbers—Gartner Technology estimates the ECM industry will exceed to $5.7 billion by the end of 2014, with a compound annual growth rate of 9.5%.

Working via its wholly owned subsidiary Intellinetics, Inc., GlobalWise Investments leverages its management and key department heads’ extensive combined experience of over 60 years in the ECM industry. The subsidiary’s flagship product, Intellivue, raises industry standards for top-of-the-line data management by combining advanced virtualization and automated content management with an open and service-oriented architecture that uses Web services. Many have recognized the pioneering nature and value of Intellivue, with leading vendors such as Lexmark, Samsung, CVS/pharmacy, and DELL having integrated their hardware into the platform.

Aside from enhancing business effectiveness and efficiency, GlobalWise Investments’ ECM technology is offered in cloud-based and on-premise server formats. Many businesses are turning to the cloud for the benefits it brings in costs savings and reduced security risks. Tapping the data-storing power of the cloud, organizations are able to save on expenditures for software updates, hardware and equipment, installation and maintenance costs, and more. Additionally, since data is stored on one central server, generally speaking the risk of data security being compromised is greatly reduced.

Many ECM software companies focus on just Tier 1 and Tier 2 markets, which consists of large companies and organizations. GlobalWise Investments is looking to become a major player in the ECM market by targeting the strongly untapped Tier 3 and Tier 4 markets, consisting of small- and medium-sized enterprises. In addition to currently being underserved, these markets also face heavy pressures from various compliance requirements to which they must adhere. With its open cloud-based computing software, GlobalWise Investments seeks to fill the needs of these businesses and make a mark in the burgeoning ECM solutions marketplace.

GlobalWise Investments, Inc. (GWIV) Centers Sights on Alluring Cloud to Provide Service to Growing ECM Industry

Friday, December 6th, 2013

GlobalWise Investments is the developer of cloud-based computing software designed to mitigate content lost in the abyss of an organization’s unstructured data. The company’s wholly owned subsidiary, Intellinetics, for more than 20 years has provided and fine-tuned this content management software to help organizations whittle down their information overload in order to streamline data and operate quickly and more efficiently.

Cloud computing has become a wide-spread, commonly used means of data organization primarily because of its convenient ability to store data. Furthermore, authorized users can access this information from any computer or Internet-connected device from anywhere in the world.

It’s also cost effective. Cloud computing cuts the need for pricey software upgrades and liberates storage capabilities from hard drive restrictions, which inherently are encumbered with equipment, installation, and maintenance costs.

Since cloud software exists in a centralized server, it’s one of the most secure means of data storage – information on the cloud generally cannot be compromised.

By eliminating mounds of paperwork, cloud computing not only saves printing and paper costs, but is also environmentally friendly. As Intellinetics notes on its website, studies show that 80 percent of corporate documents are on paper, wasting time, space, and money.

The allure of cloud computing is considerable, which is further evidenced by the rapid pace of the growing enterprise content management (ECM) space. While major market players in the ECM space focus on Tier 1 and Tier 2 markets, GlobalWise and Intellinetics have found great opportunity in providing cloud-based solutions to the underserved Tier 3 and Tier 4 markets.

GlobalWise Investments, Inc. (GWIV) Posts Q3 Financial Results

Friday, November 15th, 2013

GlobalWise Investments, a provider of cloud-based Enterprise Content Management (ECM) solutions through wholly owned subsidiary Intellinetics, has reported its third-quarter financial results for the three months ended September 30, 2013.

Total revenues decreased 46 percent to $381,078, as compared to $711,737 for the comparable quarter of 2012. The company primarily attributes the year-over-year decreases to software licenses with and without professional services and consulting services.

Gross profits were $266,162, as compared to $484,205 for the third quarter last year, representing a decrease of 45 percent primarily as a result of the decrease in revenues.

“While our revenue growth has slowed down, public awareness of cloud-based computing, storage and retrieval is helping our marketing efforts to the smaller SMB clients. Our software as a service (SAAS) offering Intelli-Cloud™ is sold through our expanding base of channel partners that creates a low-cost sales delivery mechanism coupled with a high-margin software product. The recent conferences we attended, is helping us broaden our message to a larger group, as well as increase our number of channel partners,” Matthew Chretien, interim president and CEO of GlobalWise stated in the news release.

GlobalWise reported a net loss of $541,412 for the third quarter of 2013, compared to a net loss of $492,607 for the third quarter of 2012.

Chretien noted increasing strength in the company’s channel partnerships, but said that revenues in the future will continue to reflect the company’s sales transition.

“Our channel partnerships with companies like MWAi are gaining traction and I was honored to participate in the 2013 Innovation Fair in Japan with the rest of the Technology United members. I am enthusiastic regarding the expected increased performance and commitment from our channel partners, but still expect fluctuations in revenue as we evolve from historically premised-based software solutions sold over a long sales cycle to cloud-based solutions,” he says.

GlobalWise Investments, Inc. (GWIV) Eyes Significant ECM Market Share with Focus on Road Less Traveled

Wednesday, November 13th, 2013

Intellinetics, wholly owned subsidiary of GlobalWise Investments, provides electronic content management (ECM) solutions to enable companies to operate efficiently and effectively, streamlining workflow via cloud or premise-based content management software. Utilizing this technology, documents and records can freely move through an operation.

The company’s flagship platform, Intellivue™, boasts the advantages of cloud computing technology (cost effective, secure, environmentally friendly), but also defines a new benchmark by combining advanced virtualization and automated content management with an open and service-oriented architecture using web services.

Leading hardware vendors such as Lexmark, Samsung, CVS/pharmacy, and DELL are leveraging the Intellinetics model by directly integrating their hardware into the Intellivue cloud platform. Intellinetics anticipates that these are just a few of many businesses that recognize the power of efficient, cloud-based ECM.

The burgeoning ECM industry is expected to top $5.1 billion by 2013 with a compound annual growth rate of 9.5 percent, according to Gartner research. IBM Market Insights predicts that the adoption of cloud computing is on track to grow by 26 percent CAGR between 2010 -2013.

While major market players in the ECM space target large Tier 1 and Tier 2 markets, GlobalWise plans to capture its market share of these growing segments by way of a less traveled route, and has directed Intellinetics’ focus on the underserved and compliance-heavy Tier 3 and Tier 4 markets to serve small to mid-size businesses.
