EPITOME SYSTEMS launched as a new company, introducing its enterprise productivity management (EPM) suite of products in response to market demand.

"EPM addresses business needs that go beyond traditional document and content management.  The system effectively drives information through an enterprise to enhance productivity at every level of the business," said Warren V. "Pete" Musser, chairman and co-CEO of Epitome Systems and founder and chairman emeritus, Safeguard Scientifics, Inc.

Epitome Systems and the EPM concept evolved from a successful initiative to convert GMAC Commercial Holding Corp. (GMACCH), one of the world's largest commercial lending firms, to a paperless environment.

The success of the initiative at GMACCH, which continues to be a client, as well as with other key corporate clients combined with growing market demand to motivate Epitome Systems to launch EPM to a broader market.

"More than just a good idea, the EPM model was born out of a real business need," said Vince Rogusky, founder, president, and co-CEO of Epitome Systems. "The result is a proven technology that is already in its third generation of development and has a well-established history of extensive use."

EPM adds value to information and processes, transforming a company's internal and external assets into strategic enablers by making them automated, connected, and available on-demand across the enterprise.

Musser described the technology as "unique in that before coming onto the market, it was already well-embedded in the industry.  EPM has already demonstrated proof-positive results, facilitating the processing of billions of dollars of transactions on a global level."

"Enterprise content management, integrated document management and enterprise application integration have evolved into a new market called enterprise productivity management (EPM)," said William Bangert, global head of Gartner Consulting's Strategic Sourcing Practice. "EPM is fast becoming a strategic productivity tool used to achieve critical business objectives such as the ability to quickly enable compliance, realize insourcing and outsourcing requirements, and support real-time decision making."
