VeBridge Adds a Wealth of ECM Tools and Knowledge that Simplify Document Management Processes
Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc. (Konica Minolta) today announced the acquisition of VeBridge Holdings, Inc., a Lexington, Kentucky-based document management business that specializes in enterprise content management (ECM), business process automation and outsourcing, and document conversion services.
VeBridge, founded in 1998, has a lengthy history of turning business challenges into profitable competitive advantages for their customers by converting paper to digital information that enables automating manual processes while providing secure yet easy access to information. By helping companies take the first step in converting paper documents, and managing their content with ECM and business process management (BPM) products including OnBase® by Hyland Software, the company provides a wide array of information and content management options for its customers.
“What sets us apart is the ability to build workable bridges between people, process and technology in the manufacturing, healthcare, education and insurance spaces,” said Paul Engel, CEO and founder of VeBridge. “Understanding how to best meet our customers’ business needs, a process we refer to as relentless discovery, is the very foundation for the work we perform that ultimately benefits the end-users of our products and services.”
Through its ECM Business Development initiative, Konica Minolta is continually identifying companies with complementary services to support its national expansion of the ECM practice. “With its geographic location and solid relationships in key industries, we knew that VeBridge would be a good addition to our practice,” says Les Walker, vice president, ECM Business Development. “We look forward to future opportunities for other compatible businesses to join our practice and support our focus on content management, conversion services and SharePoint consulting.”
Kevin Kern, senior vice president, Business Intelligence Services and Product Planning noted, “The acquisition of VeBridge further complements the portfolio of ECM, business process automation, document management solutions and document conversion services we currently offer to our customers.” Kern added, “We’re excited to make this addition, which expands our geographic coverage in the Midwest, and further demonstrates our commitment to meeting the current and future needs of businesses nationwide in solving their content and document management challenges.”
