Empired launches cloud-based enterprise content management service for Australian and New Zealand organisations

Empired LogoEmpired has announced the launch of Cohesion 365, a cloud-based enterprise content management (ECM) service for Australian and New Zealand (ANZ) businesses and government agencies.

Cohesion 365 is built on the Microsoft-based enterprise document and records management service and was originally created by Intergen, an Empired company, for New Zealand government clients.

Cohesion 365 is designed to help agencies meet many of their content, collaboration, and information management needs, providing a secure, easy to use, enterprise-grade service, accessible from anywhere. It is a proven service used by government agencies such as the Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) in New Zealand, which signed a six-year Cohesion government contract for NZD$12 million in 2015.

Simon Bright, Chief Operating Officer, Empired, said, “Cohesion was set up to help public sector agencies communicate, collaborate, and meet their records management requirements with a cloud-delivered ECM service.

“With the introduction of Cohesion 365, Empired can now offer this same service via the public cloud to private sector organisations and government agencies across ANZ. The platform leverages the Microsoft Stack, which makes Cohesion is a natural extension for many organisations with a familiar interface and functionality.

“We have delivered this service successfully to the New Zealand government over the past two years so expanding it is a natural evolution, particularly given the strong trend where government and enterprise are more open to public cloud services and are becoming more comfortable with the level of security public clouds have.”

Cohesion 365 takes a step towards the future in its user enablement, helping organisations achieve digital transformation by offering exceptional functionality. The focus on individual, team and community use creates a rich user experience, while compliance and records management processes are handled in the background. The burden of data organisation and classification is borne seamlessly by the application instead of by the user.

Simon Bright said, “Cohesion 365 is a key productivity enabler by virtue of using the Microsoft platform that is already in place and extending the capability to include ECM in a very user friendly form. The Cohesion advantage is that it will be instantly familiar to users, leading to a rapid and high adoption rate. We believe Cohesion 365 is a game-changer in the ECM space.”
