January 13, 2009 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology News
LOS ANGELES, California, January 13, 2009 DocuTech Business Solutions, a Los Angeles-headquartered information management services company specializing in document processing, records management and related activities, has been named a Channel Partner by ACOM Solutions, Inc., it was announced today by President and Principal Gene Kato and ACOM Senior Vice President James R. Scott.

Guided by the Japanese philosophy of Kaizen, or "continuous improvement", DocuTech Business Solutions provides services and solutions to organizations and institutions, with emphasis on the distribution, legal, healthcare and entertainment markets. Comprised of solutions for electronic payment management, document production, content management, and automated trading partner transaction management, the ACOM Integrated Document Management Suite dramatically increases the scope of the company's capabilities, Kato said.

With its new business partnership with ACOM Solutions, Inc., the company can extend its offerings, for example, by complementing its A/P invoice processing with ACOM's Automated Clearing House (ACH) electronic payment and document management solutions. The solutions seamlessly integrate with each other and with virtually any enterprise resource planning and management software on the market today.

Operating nationally from offices in downtown Los Angeles and Torrance, California, DocuTech offers expertise in records retention, risk management, regulatory compliance and disaster recovery, executed through its proprietary RIM (Records and Information Management) on Demand solution. The staff of 25 includes records management specialists, accounting and methods specialists, technologists, and legal experts, including one — Attorney and Partner Jima Anne Ikegawa — who is the only attorney in California who is also a Certified Records Manager.

"Because of the breadth of our services and solutions, we don't have to piece a solution together," he said. "We explored other partner opportunities, but ACOM brings together a seamlessly integrated product suite that blends perfectly with our offerings, objectives and corporate philosophy. In addition, they displayed an excellent understanding of the reseller environment and its requirements as well as the willingness to provide the support we need to integrate their solutions with our operations."

Typically, Kato said, DocuTech might engage on one level and as its client relationship develops, identify other areas of potential improvement. For example, early in 2009, the company will execute a student records initiative at a major university with the expectation that an accounting project will follow, with ACOM likely becoming part of the overall solution.

"We were particularly attracted to the comprehensiveness of the integrated ACOM suite of products and also by the testimonials provided us by actual solution users," he said. "We do not focus on any particular vertical and ACOM's offerings are similarly broad, applicable in virtually any business scenario. We foresee significant potential in accounts payable management and in all aspects of enterprise document production and management."
