Hyland Software named to KMWorld�s list of 100 Companies that Matter in Knowledge Management

Cleveland, Ohio – February 23, 2006 – Hyland Software, Inc., developer of the OnBase enterprise content management (ECM) software suite, has been named to KMWorld�s sixth annual list of 100 Companies that Matter In Knowledge Management. This is the third time that Hyland and OnBase, which includes core capabilities in document imaging, workflow and records management, have been recognized by KMWorld with this distinction.

�The list is conceived as a way to recognize some of the organizations leading the way in the knowledge economy,� said KMWorld Editor Hugh McKellar. �It’s designed to encourage a broader discussion of knowledge management. Criteria for inclusion differ, of course, as do the technologies recognized, but all companies share the following: Each has helped to create a market, redefine one or enhance one, and all of them demonstrate the capacity for customer-driven agile innovation. Compilation of the list is a year-long, collaborative but informal process with vendors, analysts and colleagues.�

OnBase, which deploys quickly and scales to run across businesses at a low total cost of ownership, is for industries, such as Financial Services, State and Local Government, Healthcare, Compliance and Education, where employees typically process large volumes of paper forms, printed reports, word processing files and e-mail correspondence. OnBase automates these business processes, reducing the time and cost of performing business functions, improving organizational efficiency and addressing the need for regulatory compliance through the management, control and sharing of the digital content with employees, business partners, customers and other constituencies.

�Being named to KMWorld�s list of 100 Companies that Matter in Knowledge Management is a special distinction, considering that it was compiled by colleagues, practitioners, theorists, analysts, vendors and customers in the knowledge management industry,� said Bill Priemer, executive VP and COO at Hyland Software.
