As a valued OpenText partner for more than a decade, IGC technologies will be further integrated into the ECM product portfolio and extended into other OpenText Suites.

Founded in 1990, IGC offers a full suite of powerful, proven software that helps organizations securely view, share, redact and transform documents, images including CAD drawings, for more efficient collaboration, better control and increased productivity. Integrated with the most prevalent enterprise content management (ECM) systems and leading eDiscovery applications, IGC products focus on security as well as helping with common requirements in complex document centric processes. Post-acquisition, OpenText is looking forward to growing the relationship with its new ECM, Engineering Solutions and eDiscovery partners and their customers.
