OTTAWA, Ontario, March 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- SavvyDox, a leading provider of cloud based document co-authoring and collaboration solutions has been awarded a 600 seat order from the Canadian Federal Government. The order is a direct result of SavvyDox' successful RFP submission to the Government's Build in Canada Innovation Program (BCIP).
SavvyDox will integrate with Active Directory, OpenText, and the Single Sign On solution for production by April 2016. When coupled with SavvyDox' document co-authoring and collaboration capabilities, the full end-to-end solution will provide significant productivity improvements for the Federal Government department.
Opportunities providing measurable productivity improvements include audit reports, contract management, RFP preparation and response, development of external communication packages and briefing packages for executives, policy development, and management of document workflow and collaboration in the funding approval processes.
SavvyDox' innovative solution aligns with the benefits of a face to face meeting providing document version control certifying that everyone always works from the current copy of a document; a full parallel review process ensuring everyone views everyone else's suggested changes in near real time; and support for threaded responses to other reviewer's comments. Unlike most parallel review solutions, SavvyDox guarantees that the document author has full document content control by accepting or rejecting the suggested reviewer changes. In addition, SavvyDox provides the document author with complete command of who can access a document. The feature that has gained the greatest traction is the replacement for Word Track Changes (while still using Word) providing simplified document comprehension and measurable productivity improvements for both the document author and document reviewers.
In addition to productivity improvements, SavvyDox' cloud based SaaS solution provides tightened security and improved document quality thanks to its unique parallel review process. While SavvyDox provides a complementary front end solution to Enterprise Content Management Systems and Enterprise File Sync and Share solutions, it can also run standalone as a lightweight document repository.
In parallel with the Government order, SavvyDox has added Professor Andy Adler from Carleton University to the Executive Advisory Committee. Adler is co-author of a document entitled "Challenges in Collaborative Authoring Software" which notes that "Unfortunately, since the de-facto way to jointly edit a document is to exchange draft versions between authors via email, there is typically no authoritative document or master copy. All collaborative authors are familiar with the version control 'nightmare' that can result." Dr. Adler has remarked that "SavvyDox addresses these issues with an intuitive and easy to use cloud based SaaS solution".
Hans Downer, CEO of SavvyDox noted "The order from the Government of Canada has opened the door for similar opportunities across additional departments within the Government of Canada and in US Federal and State Governments. The use cases being deployed will demonstrate the productivity improvements, security enhancements, and strengthened document quality available to other governments and private enterprises. Adding Dr. Adler to our Advisory Committee will provide deep subject matter insight into opportunities for improving collaborative authoring in the government and elsewhere."
SavvyDox Inc. is the web's most innovative provider of document co-authoring and collaboration solutions for PC's, Mac's, tablets and smartphones. SavvyDox empowers businesses and organizations to take control of document management processes resulting in increased productivity and efficiency, tightened security, and improved document quality. SavvyDox' goal is to develop solutions that simplify content and contract management with an intuitive and easy-to-use solution delivering the right document to the right person on the right device at the right time.
