Technology research and advisory firm Aragon Research has named Litéra (www.litera.com) a “Hot Vendor” in content management, collaboration and authoring, stating that users will complete more document processes in less time with less risk once Litéra is enabled.

Known for IT consulting work in mobile device strategy, knowledge management, workplace collaboration, user experience and portal markets, Aragon Research advises that competitive organizations need innovative, high-value document and content solutions to help them be more productive, better manage risk and collaborate in ways never thought possible. As enterprises look for ways to maximize IT investments, they look toward innovative vendors that are creating new value for businesses.

“A company’s effectiveness and reputation are built on content,” said Deepak Massand, CEO of Litéra. “Employees routinely use commonplace software tools that lack professional-grade capabilities to control the exposure of information created and disseminated throughout the content lifecycle. While a giant IT infrastructure secures an enterprise’s structured data, the greatest damage to a company is likely to be done by a single piece of content – an email, spreadsheet, or document.”

In the Aragon report Hot Vendors in Content Management, Collaboration and Authoring, 2012 (published June 28, 2012) analysts Jim Lundy and Mike Anderson named Litéra a hot vendor because:
·       “New ways of authoring are emerging, as are extensions to legacy offerings, particularly those that add to and extend the capabilities of Microsoft Office.”
·       “Litéra offers one of the most robust document toolsets we have seen.”
·       “The bottom line is that attorneys, patent attorneys, contract managers, researchers, and financial analysts will complete more document processes in less time with less risk once Litéra is enabled.”

Litéra’s patented technology for content creation, collaboration, comparison, control and cleaning has been adopted by leading global law firms and corporations due to its ability to help professionals work more effectively and efficiently with the documents they rely on every day.

“Document and content management software has typically been quite costly, and the ROI can be elusive,” said Massand. “Today, business leaders expect a lot from any technology investment, and Litéra’s solutions provide an immediate and compelling return. Managing and securing a company’s content at the point of use reduces risk, increases productivity and performance, and protects reputation.”
