Open Text's Enterprise Content Management Solution Strengthens CARE Canada's I Am Powerful Campaign



    
    CARE Canada Creates a Knowledge Repository Using Open Text ECM to Empower
    Women Around the World
    

    WATERLOO, ON, Jan. 29 /CNW/ - Open Text(TM) Corporation (NASDAQ:   OTEX,
TSX: OTC), a global leader in Enterprise Content Management (ECM), today
announced that CARE Canada, a non-profit and non-religious charitable
organization, is using the Open Text ECM Suite to manage content for the
organization's well known I Am Powerful marketing and awareness-raising
campaign (www.iampowerful.ca) designed to promote the empowerment of women
globally.
    As a member of one of the world's largest independent relief and
development federations, CARE International, CARE Canada's mission is to
improve the provision of security and well being for the poor in developing
regions and war-torn societies. For over half a century, CARE has been
bringing emergency relief to those in need around the world.
    This past year, when CARE Canada initiated the I Am Powerful campaign,
the organization needed a way to organize, store, and share campaign resources
internally to ensure branding consistency and use of the most up-to-date
information. Many of CARE Canada's users are not highly technical, so the
solution had to be user-friendly, interactive, and easily accessible. Having
trusted Open Text's ECM solution since 1998 as the foundation for its
intranet, named Minerva, CARE Canada adapted the solution as the central place
for information storage, knowledge sharing and distribution to help support
the campaign.
    "I Am Powerful is a relatively new campaign for CARE Canada so we have to
be very responsive to new partnership opportunities and ad placements in
magazines or on television before they disappear," said Hana Gunn, Campaign
Assistant, CARE Canada. "When these opportunities arise, Minerva allows us to
easily access all of the information we need, no matter where we are, so we
can respond quickly with the latest information and materials."
    Based on the Open Text ECM Suite, CARE Canada's I Am Powerful repository
contains hundreds of documents including reports, statistical background
information, campaign content and information from the organization's various
programs around the world that focus on women. CARE associates have the
ability to upload information to the folders they have access to from anywhere
in the world.. An email option notifies them when new documents are added to a
particular folder so they can stay attuned with current information. Minerva
also allows participants to submit articles and information they want to share
with the rest of the organization.
