SpringCM to Deliver Document Management Applications for WebEx Connect

Solution Lets Customers Manage the Entire Content Lifecycle as Part of the new WebEx Business Application “Mashup” Platform

CHICAGO and SANTA CLARA, Calif., October 10, 2006—SpringCM and WebEx (Nasdaq: WEBX), the leading provider of software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications for collaborative business on the web, today announced that the SpringCM complete solution for Enterprise Content Management will be available via the new WebEx Connect application grid. This will provide seamless enterprise document access from anywhere, collaborative editing and approval tools, and complete on and offline publishing capabilities within WebEx Connect based applications.

The combined offering will allow customers, from anywhere in the world, to maintain a scalable and secure document repository for any file type, complete with full enterprise search and embedded optical character recognition (OCR), to collaboratively create, edit, update and publish documents. SpringCM will integrate with the WebEx offerings, and will allow customers to manage a greater part of the document lifecycle within WebEx. For example, WebEx Training Center customers will be able to create and edit content online, and access the final version in the WebEx Training Center environment. WebEx Sales Center customers will be able to collaborate with customers on RFPs, contracts and orders, and submit contracts directly to an approval workflow. WebEx Support Center customers will be able to deliver new information into the hands of front line representatives much more quickly through an always-available, integrated document solution. In addition, SpringCM will offer standalone solutions for fax and print-on-demand for WebEx.

“The WebEx Connect partner vision is right on target,” said SpringCM CEO Christine Mason McCaull.  “It leverages the inherent advantages of software-as-a-service to give customers what they need right away, and by combining and extending applications on demand, without the traditional customization expenses of installed software.  We are pleased to have the opportunity to work with a partner that has such a loyal and extensive customer base, and a compatible vision of how businesses should be able to leverage SaaS technologies.”

SpringCM is one of many applications users will be able to access through their personal WebEx Connect workspace and the WebEx Connect grid of partner applications. WebEx Connect is the first composite application platform specifically designed for on-demand collaboration. WebEx Connect allows users to integrate data from multiple applications and create a collaborative workspace custom designed for their particular workflow and business process. By leveraging open Web 2.0 protocols and collaborative WebEx MediaTone APIs, WebEx Connect makes it easy for developers to adapt on-demand, desktop and enterprise applications to the platform or create new composite applications.

“SpringCM is a great fit with WebEx Connect,” David Knight, vice president, WebEx Connect, WebEx. “The company’s vision to deliver enterprise class content management to departmental buyers for a fraction of the cost fits well with the 2 million WebEx users. SpringCM’s document collaboration provides customers additional, useful functionality, which is what the WebEx Connect platform was meant to do.”
