CONCORD, Calif., Feb. 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Formtek, Inc., a leading provider of document and content management software and services, announced today that it has signed a Partnership Agreement with Redpill Linpro, Scandinavia's largest Open Source Company.
Redpill Linpro is the leading provider of the Alfresco® open platform for business critical content management and collaboration in the Nordic region. Formtek is a US-based Alfresco Systems Integration Partner, and the developer of the Formtek® Software Extensions for Alfresco and the Formtek Engineering Data Management (EDM) Solution for Alfresco.
Through the partnership with Redpill Linpro, Formtek's software will be made available for Scandinavian users of Alfresco. Redpill Linpro's first implementation of the Formtek EDM Solution will be for Svenska kraftnät, a state-owned public utility in Sweden.
"The partnership with Formtek is a strategic initiative to further increase the capabilities of Alfresco and the Alfresco based solutions we are delivering to our Scandinavian customers," said Fredrik Svensson, Business Area Manager for Java Solutions within Redpill Linpro. "This is another example on how the Open Source community and ecosystem can be used to make state of the art global solutions available for local Scandinavian organizations. The Formtek extensions will first be used in our Alfresco implementation project for Svenska kraftnät to enable easy integration between the document management solution and technical AutoCAD drawings. We have also initiated discussions with other organizations that are interested in using the same functionality to gain control over their technical documentation and increase collaboration between internal and external project members."
