NZ KM vendor secures major UK media win

Wellington-based knowledge management software company Silent One has signed a deal with UK media giant The Financial Times which will see the company's knowledge management system deployed to manage the Financial Times' international information feeds.

Silent One Chief Executive Peter Hammond said it represents a significant opportunity for the New Zealand company, which is a partly owned subsidiary of the ECN Group of New Zealand Post.

“The contract with the Financial Times is the second sale that we have clinched in the UK this year, the other being Diabetes UK, and is an important building block towards achieving further successes in the UK and European markets.

“The internationally recognised Financial Times is a well respected and influential media organisation and we are delighted to be working within them to improve their knowledge management system,” said Hammond.

“The UK is a competitive market to break into and this sale gives a strong endorsement for our totally New Zealand developed product and I am delighted with what has been achieved,” added Silent One's Chairman Pete Yarrall.

The SilentOne system integrates with Microsoft Office, enabling users to create, share and manage documents from within Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook, and provides the ability to have a managed repository of electronic documents, with full version control, rich metadata, document-level security, and lifecycle management.
