QUMAS extends customer base in the United States with Strategic Partnerships

JERSEY CITY, NJ – July 5, 2011 - QUMAS, the leading provider of Compliance Solutions to highly regulated companies, announced today that it has extended its customer base in the United States through strategic partnerships with Microsoft and LexisNexis®.

Earlier this year QUMAS achieved Microsoft Gold Content Management competency in the Microsoft Partner Network. To earn a Microsoft Gold competency, organizations must complete a rigorous set of tests to prove their level of technology expertise, have the right number of Microsoft Certified Professionals, submit customer references and demonstrate their commitment to customer satisfaction.
The Microsoft partnership resulted in the launch of QUMAS ComplianceSP on April 28, 2011. QUMAS ComplianceSP is an innovative document and quality management solution, combining the power of SharePoint 2010 with the regulatory domain expertise that QUMAS has proven over 17 years of providing core compliance solutions to regulated industries. Many life sciences firms are planning to make SharePoint 2010 a key part of their technology infrastructure. QUMAS ComplianceSP allows these firms to leverage their investment in Microsoft technology with a scalable compliance management solution that is easy-to-use.

In 2010 QUMAS announced LexisNexis® Compliance Manager powered by QUMAS - a co-branded, web-based application for managing compliance processes and policies. The solution delivers access to legal and regulatory content from LexisNexis directly within the QUMAS compliance management solution - providing compliance professionals with a single location to easily manage each step in the compliance lifecycle. The solution is sold and marketed by LexisNexis, a leading global provider of content-enabled workflow solutions.

"We have worked very closely with LexisNexis and Microsoft over the last year and a half to provide unique and innovative compliance solutions that enable companies to manage information in new ways," said Kevin O'Leary, CEO for QUMAS. "It is gratifying to see companies adopting these new solutions across a wide range of industries."


QUMAS is the leader in Enterprise Compliance Solutions with more than 250 global customer deployments and almost two decades of experience helping companies in highly regulated industries.
