Open Text and the Frontline Group to Partner on Oil and Gas Industry Solutions

Apr 09, 2004

Open Text Corporation, provider of Livelink collaboration and content management software, and The Frontline Group, a Houston-based energy industry business and technology consulting firm, have announced plans to jointly deliver enterprise content management (ECM) software based on Open Text's Livelink suite. The solutions are intended to help companies improve processes and team collaboration in oil and gas exploration.

The companies plan to combine Open Text's ECM software--which includes integrated collaboration tools, document and content management, training, process automation, and other capabilities--with The Frontline Group's specialized process and change management consulting services. Specifically tailored to the needs of energy companies, the solutions are designed to offer new ways to link globally dispersed teams of people involved in oil exploration, and provide a single place where they can work together, share information and maintain project documents. Open Text and The Frontline Group plan to roll out the first of their offerings in the next few months and will also develop solutions aimed at other segments of the energy market.
