Hyland Software Receives KMWorld 2005 Trend Setter Award Enterprise Content Management publication recognizes OnBase� ECM software suite

CLEVELAND – August 22, 2005 – Hyland Software, Inc., developer of the OnBase enterprise content management (ECM) software suite, today announced that it has received the 2005 Trend Setter Award from KMWorld Magazine.

According to KMWorld Editor in Chief Hugh McKellar: “As was the case last year, we evaluated more than 200 vendors, whose combined offerings top the 1,200 mark. It bears mentioning that these are not the only trend-setting products on the market today, rather they are the ones upon which our panel agreed. And just what were the criteria for selection? As we have in years past we considered usability, flexibility, adoption rate and total cost of ownership. And we also recognized some vendors for their vision toward the future or for a collection of offerings, rather than a specific product or compelling new version of an existing one.”

“It’s an honor to receive this award from KMWorld,” said Bill Priemer, executive VP and COO at Hyland Software. “The recognition signifies our continuous efforts to be innovative in the development and distribution of OnBase as enterprise content management software.”

The KMWorld Trend-Setter Award is the fourth distinction that Hyland has received this year. Hyland has also been recognized with the following:

  • 2005 ECM Industry ACE Award

  • 2005 I3 Award

  • 2005 Mortgage Technology Top 100 Award
