CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - May 12, 2014) - SpringCM®, the leader in Content Cloud Services, today announced its ranking in the Leader Quadrant of the Nucleus Research Technology Value Matrix for Enterprise Content Management (ECM). The Value Matrix is based on functionality and usability, the two core measures that Nucleus has found indicate an application's ability to deliver initial ROI and, ultimately, maximum value for ECM solutions over time. Nucleus Research places vendors in the ECM Leader category who provide comprehensive, unified solutions that are easily deployed and seamlessly deliver content to a broad range of users within the enterprise.

In other recently published research, Nucleus named SpringCM an "ECM Vendor to Watch in 2014" and analyzed the delivery of the SpringCM File It! and Get It! apps for SpringCM for Salesforce, saying, "The integration of content and [the CRM] application increases employee productivity by keeping employees focused on proactive tasks rather than stopping work to switch applications for retrieving and managing content."

"SpringCM is the only solution provider included in the ECM Value Matrix that is exclusively cloud-based," said Joseph Rojas, Analyst, Nucleus Research. "At the same time enterprises are struggling with aging content platforms, our research shows cloud solutions are delivering 1.7 times more ROI than on-premise systems. SpringCM's expertise in the cloud provides a flexible, scalable content solution that assimilates smoothly into existing and innovative enterprise business processes."

"We're solving a major standoff in business today," said Ben Kiker, CMO, SpringCM. "More than half of old-school ECM systems are rejected by the very people those systems are supposed to help. Meanwhile enterprise IT leaders suffer increasing anxiety over the growing volume of content stored in cloud-based 'boxes.' We eliminate this standoff with highly secure, enterprise-class content management that people actually love to use to get their jobs done. It's a refreshing approach to a class of business applications that has long needed a breath of fresh air."

SpringCM Content Cloud Services transform the way people find, share, collaborate and work with content. SpringCM combines the ease of use of consumer-focused offerings with robust enterprise-class capabilities designed to put content to work. Unlike consumer-class Content Cloud Services, SpringCM was architected for the enterprise from day one with rich security, mobile, sync and business process capabilities. While old school Enterprise Content Management systems such as SharePoint, Documentum and FileNet are expensive to maintain and challenging to use, SpringCM delivers the functionality of those systems and more without frustrating employees, customers and partners.
