Now Offers Accounts Payable, Contracts Management, and Records Management Solutions as Part of its Enterprise Content Management Portfolio
Flatirons Solutions has acquired Beach Street Consulting, Inc., a provider of enterprise content management (ECM) solutions for legal, finance, and human resource teams. With the acquisition of Beach Street, which is based in the Washington, D.C. area, Flatirons adds Accounts Payable, Contracts Management, and Records Management solutions to its ECM portfolio, making Flatirons a leading provider of ECM solutions tailored to specific content management use cases.
The Beach Street acquisition is the fourth acquisition by Flatirons in the ECM space in the past two years, reflecting the company’s leadership in helping organizations get more from their enterprise content management systems by connecting people, processes, and content throughout the information lifecycle in order to deliver the right information, at the right time, to the right people.
According to Gartner’s 2014 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Content Management, the global market for ECM software grew by 8.6% in 2013 and saw $5.1 billion in total revenue, indicating that “ECM technologies continue to attract more users and deliver value to enterprises.” Moreover, the report found that “the concept of ‘content in context’ will be key to [the CMS] market’s evolution as enterprises increasingly need content to be delivered in a personalized fashion — to the right people, at the right time, on the right devices, and in the context of particular business processes or needs.”
With the Beach Street acquisition, Flatirons now expands its ECM solution offers in the following areas: Business Process Management, Imaging, Digital Asset Management, Records Management, Document Management, and Collaboration.
“Beach Street is excited to join forces with Flatirons to provide a comprehensive set of solutions that deliver added value to the content management process,” said John Burns, President of Beach Street Consulting. “Together, we look forward to offering our clients a set of solutions that streamline the way they manage content-intensive processes while reducing costs and ensuring compliance in industries where regulations are a primary concern.”
Geoffrey Godet, Flatirons’ CEO, added, “As the concept of content management continues to evolve, Flatirons is pleased to be at the forefront, defining best practices and providing solutions that address the specific contexts in which information is used.”
