Information Flows to the Right People with OpenText Workflow

The OpenText demo blew everybody away, from an IT perspective and an end-user perspective, with a consistent web interface for everything. The workflow looked extremely easy, and I'm glad to report after using it that it is extremely easy to use.

George Danilovics, IT Director at Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments


COG wanted to improve several inefficiencies caused by their workflow processes, which were entirely manual and paper based. COG also needed to find a way to improve productivity and reduce risk by making information easier to manage and find. This included all documentation related to the projects and grants that they work on.



COG has improved several inefficiencies, saved money, and created more office space that can be used to build revenue.

Documents and forms are secure and accessible within Content Server, so if an employee is away, business can continue. Records are safe and accurate and can be depended upon for anything from individual pension details to the history of a policy decision.

The OpenText solution has helped COG improve its workflows and ensure the right information is available to the right people at the right time.
