Sep 05, 2003


Open Text Corporation, provider of Livelink collaboration and content management software for the enterprise, has announced that Jewson Ltd, a Saint-Gobain company, has adopted its Livelink solution. Saint-Gobain is a provider of building materials; the company manufactures and distributes glass, abrasive products, ceramics and plastics, building materials, reinforcements and ductile iron pipeline systems. Livelink was chosen by Jewson in an attempt to increase revenue and drive efficiency across its network of 450 branches. Livelink will replace existing paper-based processes, allowing sales employees at Jewson's branches to access and share information, and react to changes in customer demand. Livelink will also reduce the overall administration overheads throughout the Jewson network. Jewson anticipates that the project will improve its overall revenue through automation of business processes and the simplification of access to information that could increase employee productivity.
