Mar 01, 2013, 08:00 ET from GroveWare Technologies Ltd.

TORONTO, March 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- GroveWare Technologies Ltd. (OTCQB: GROV) - a provider of enterprise mobile solutions connecting workforces by smartphones and tablet devices, continues its pursuit of both economic and ecological benefit. They do this by using their proprietary MobiTask mobile document technology to reduce and ultimately replace the use of paper for business.

The market for apps that can reduce paper, such as what GroveWare provides, is estimated to be about $1.3 billion. "Our objective is to become the market leader of mobile process automation and capture 10 percent or more of this market within the next three years," comments Hrair Achkarian, GroveWare's CEO.  This goal of Capturing 10 percent of this $1.3 billion market would result in $130 Million in Revenue.

According to a recent report, U.S. businesses use around 21 million tons of paper every year. GroveWare's MobiTask technology, if applied, could replace the need for this paper consumption while providing lower costs, greater access, and improved storage for documents. A recent white paper commissioned by GroveWare suggests even small companies utilizing the GroveWare document technology, that rewards can be significant.

With a Phase I implementation of GroveWare technology, an organization with 500 employees can save approximately $6,000 per month, or $72,000 per year:

  • 500 employees x 6 form submissions per month = 3,000 form submissions
  • Cost of each form (printing, storage, and disposal) = $2
  • 3,000 forms per month x $2 per form = $6,000 per month
  • $6,000 x 12 months = $72,000 per year

"GroveWare's innovative technology is further validated by our partnership with technology leader, Verizon Wireless, Apple, and Samsung. We are on the path to become the standard in mobile e-forms technology," says Achkarian. "Because GroveWare's technology is utilized through an app and not a hard installation, our entry barriers are limited primarily to customer awareness. Like a music download, we can be anywhere and everywhere our customers need a superior technology to preserver documents from the office or field."

The company has a significant amount of technology and there is not an equitable competitor in the industry at this point. This has positioned the company to secure a significant amount of market share with some of the larger industries in the world of commerce. The company has already penetrated such markets as government, education, construction, law enforcement, field force automation and general inspections.
