Enterprise content management (ECM) company, Hyland, has extended its reach into Australia with the appointment of its first country manager. Bob Dunn has been named to the role and he will be based in the company’s Sydney office.
The company claimed the move is a testament to its commitment to the Australian region and dedication to the region’s growth.
The company issued a statement, which read that the new appointment is an attempt to grow the company’s Asia-Pacific business, specifically within the enterprise content management (ECM) segment.
According to Dunn, Australians are becoming more aware of the value of ECM and claimed there are huge savings to be made in this space. However, not many businesses have got on board with it.
“Australian businesses, governments, NGOs and other organisations are losing hundreds of millions of dollars daily because of ineffective and outdated methods of storing, transferring and accessing vital information.
“ECM is a technology that is largely underutilised in Australia. There are huge savings to be made by Australian companies and we intend to help those who are keen to do just this,” he mentioned.
Dunn also claimed that he intends on infiltrating the ECM space with the company’s OnBase solution as it aims to help organisations digitise operations and accelerate processes by providing timely and relevant information.
“Australian businesses have a host of software solutions that allow for data to be gathered and stored but what is missing is a holistic approach to driving efficiencies across the whole organization,” Dunn added.
Dunn has relocated to Sydney from the U.S. and aims to replicate Hyland’s success in the U.S. across Australia.
He has been an active part of the Enterprise Content Management (ECM) industry since 1991 and has held various positions during his tenure, ranging from channel sales management to his newest role in the ECM software industry.
