Since 2005, OpenKM has excelled in the market for its document management standards and open-source technologies. Because it is adapted to each of its customers' needs and their problems in document management, here is a little tour of what OpenKM was, is, and will be, and its purpose in document management.
In 2004, most of the OpenKM team worked as developers and project managers in a company specializing in new open-source technologies and distributors of proprietary document management solutions.
In those days, the cost of document management products could only be taken by big companies. After studying and analyzing various document managers at the time, the idea of developing an open-source knowledge management system was born which, by its nature, could be used by both large and small businesses, but without having to make a large investment in its acquisition.
In 2005, the idea arose and became a reality with the Spanish government's receipt of funds for development through the National Program of Services Technologies for the Information Society. The first version of the product was released in January 2007: thus, it was born OpenKM (Open Knowledge Management).
That same year, after the closing of our old company, we decide to invest in this product and launch our own. This new venture's potential and experience in this application enabled us to go to the market and release new versions with new features. Continuous product development, proximity to customers, and response times were considered critical factors in filling the market gap.
We found our first customers (both domestic and international), and dreams began to take shape. As of 2009, some large accounts started to trust our product, and we started developing our network of partners.
Our effort is beginning to be recognized with such awards as the second-best business project of IE Business School and as a better implementation of Portal Software "program essential for business." We also received congratulations contacts from giants like Google and consultants like Gartner.
2011 and 2012 were years of consolidation and expansion of the team, with professionals experienced in both the technical and commercial areas. OpenKM expands its market to all continents and has customers in places as diverse as Japan, Latin America, Singapore, and Australia. The application is translated into 35 languages and recorded an average of 7,000 monthly downloads through the Web, reaching more than 4,000 installations worldwide.
In 2013, economic objectives needed to continue the project were achieved, maintaining the roadmap. The turnover of the previous year and the number of customers and partners are doubled.
Today, we desire to continue building partnerships at all levels with our customers, associates, and third-party applications that give us the ability to offer a comprehensive solution in any organizational environment, with the firm objective of achieving the best possible user experience.
