Morningstar Systems, specialist in the
field of context management and enterprise content management,
has announced that 100% of its shares have been purchased by the Euronext-listed IRIS Group. 'No' this is not the same UK-based IRIS Group that now owns the AIM, Laserform, Mountain and Videss businesses but a European operation probably best known for scanning, OCR and electronic document management technology.



René Beulen, the sales manager at Morningstar said “We very strongly believe that IRIS and Morningstar have a lot of synergies. For instance
Morningstar will help IRIS in proposing integrated solutions
towards the ECM market, and IRIS will bring their experience in
large document recognition projects as well as in implementing complex
IT infrastructure.”



Founded in 2001, Morningstar Systems is probably best known as a reseller and implementer of the Interwoven DMS within the Benelux region. More recently Morningstar also became a reseller of the Bighand digital dictation, Metastorn BPM and the InterAction CRM systems. It is also an OpenText DMS partner.
