I.R.I.S. announces partnership with Salumatics
Health information management company will pioneer I.R.I.S. Business Process Solutions in the Americas
With this announcement, I.R.I.S. and Salumatics will partner to provide applications for automatic document classification, indexing of health records and other highly confidential patient information, and invoice processing.
Salumatics has provided trusted information management services to healthcare organizations since 2000. Salumatics understands the challenges of integrating paper and digital information, and helps clients address those challenges, with commitment to a rigorous standard of privacy, security and confidentiality compliance. Salumatics' facilities and data centres are secure, and their staff is trained to safeguard the personal health records, human resource files, and organizational financial data in their care.
I.R.I.S. is a leader in "Document-to-Knowledge" and offers high-quality solutions for conversion of paper documents into digital formats - for archiving and storing purposes and for the shared utilization of digital data.
For both I.R.I.S. and Salumatics, this partnership will provide the opportunity to further strengthen their respective offerings in the areas of document classification, data extraction and invoice processing for the North American market across a variety of industry verticals.
Salumatics is not only an I.R.I.S. partner, but will be the I.R.I.S. reference site in North America upon implementation of the I.R.I.S technology into a key component of their own operations. During the first phase of the project where the IRISXtract(TM) for Documents platform is integrated with the Salumatics' workflow, 30 million pages per year are forecast to be processed and classified.
Both Salumatics and I.R.I.S. are very excited by the establishment of this partnership. Günter Hensges, CEO I.R.I.S. AG., stresses the importance of the collaboration: "Data classification and business process automation are becoming more and more important to the North American market. Salumatics will be an important part of our plans to grow the sales of IRISXtract(TM) through our partners and to make our solutions more accessible in the North American market."
Scott McMillan, Vice President, Business Services at Salumatics, confirms the development: "We are very pleased about our collaboration with I.R.I.S. AG. IRISXtractTM is an advanced and extensive solution that complements the services we provide to our clients. By combining IRISXtractTM with our own applications and processes, Salumatics will be able to achieve an even higher level of automation and processing speed to support our clients as they deal with confidential, data-intensive documents."
Pierre De Muelenaere, President & CEO of the I.R.I.S. Group, comments: "I.R.I.S. has a very strong focus on the US market with significant growth objectives. We are convinced that the US market for capture and classification solutions presents an outstanding opportunity to realize this strategic growth. This is the main reason of our investment in the US partner channel. Against the background of this strategy we are very proud to announce as a first big success the partnership with Salumatics and the hereby upcoming opportunities. We are sure that I.R.I.S. will establish a recognized presence in the US!"
