Sense/Net Inc. has developed the industry’s first open-source Enterprise Content Management System (ECMS) for the .Net platform. It is dual licensed, with a free community edition, and a licensed, fully supported Enterprise edition.
Sense/Net ECM is sold via Solution Partners who design and build websites, intranets, portals, and extranets for their clients.
The company wants to build a world-wide partnership network. The Sense/Net partner program allows system integrators, web agencies, custom developer companies and hosters to re-sell Sense/Net products, implement custom solutions based on the core product, or even use the code to build a new product, all while providing profitable service and license revenue to the partner. Beyond 30% more partner profit Sense/Net promises up to 90% less ECM cost and 60% less project risk.
Sense/Net is divided into two business units. One third of the company is the Product Team, which supports the current version of Sense/Net ECMS (called Sense/Net ECM) by providing consultancy and releasing updates. They also develop the next version based on market trends and feedback from customers and partners.
Employing about two thirds of the company, the Business Solutions team features project managers, consultants, web designers and developers to supplement and support the development efforts of the Solution Partners and their clients, including complete ECMS deployment and related custom development projects. The service portfolio of this unit is complete with support and full operations outsourcing, run by system engineers and technical account managers.
