Industry Association uses crowdsourcing to vet new product ideas at annual conference

London, UK, May 24th, 2016 – The inaugural AIIM Pitch Perfect contest took place on Wednesday, April 27th during The AIIM Conference 2016. Four companies had 3 minutes to pitch their new product to an in-person audience of 750 people, plus an audience watching online via livestream. The audience was comprised of individuals from hundreds of organisations in dozens of industries and countries around the world. Following the pitches, viewers used a secure and anonymous app to vote for the product “Most Likely to Succeed” in the marketplace.

The companies making pitches for their products were:
- FileFacets by FileFacets
- ShareBase by Hyland
- Kofax TotalAgility by Kofax from Lexmark
- Precision Content Workshop by Precision Content Authoring Solutions

All four candidates received votes and compliments, but it was ShareBase that garnered the most votes, claiming the first AIIM Pitch Perfect award by a significant margin.

ShareBase, an enterprise file sync and share (EFSS) product, provides secure, cloud-based sharing and collaboration inside and outside an organisation. ShareBase also interacts with OnBase, Hyland’s industry leading enterprise information platform, allowing documents to be automatically shared outside of OnBase, collaborated upon and imported back in, streamlining and improving business processes.

“We're delighted to be awarded this honour, and grateful to the AIIM audience for recognising ShareBase's powerful new way of collaborating on content in today’s digital workplace,” said Glenn Gibson, Director of Product Marketing at Hyland. Gibson delivered the award-winning pitch on behalf of Hyland.
