Intellinetics, Inc. Expands Digital Content Management Services with Acquisition of Graphic Sciences, Inc.
Clients to benefit from complementary document conversion services
COLUMBUS, Ohio, March 04, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Intellinetics, Inc., (OTCQB: INLX) a cloud-based document solutions provider, announced today that is has acquired Graphic Sciences, Inc., a company that specializes in document scanning and digital conversion services, located in Madison Heights, MI. Intellinetics acquired Graphic Sciences as a wholly owned subsidiary. At present, each company will continue to operate under its own name, maintain current offices, and experience minimal changes in personnel.
A key reason for the acquisition of Graphics Sciences is management’s belief that there is a strong synergy between the two companies, since each provides document management products and services to highly-regulated, risk- and compliance-intensive markets. The IntelliCloud™ solution suite will be expanded to include Graphic Sciences’ document scanning and microfilm services while Graphic Science customers will benefit from the option to gain anywhere, anytime access to their digitized documents via the IntelliCloud Document Management Platform.
“Adding Graphic Sciences service offerings, industry knowledge, and relationships creates a natural synergy between our two companies”, said James F. DeSocio, President & CEO of Intellinetics. “Adding their document scanning services to our IntelliCloud solution suite will allow us to offer our clients the professional management of capturing their documents, storage of their documents, and secure access of their documents throughout their entire life cycle in whatever form or medium is most appropriate. Plus, Graphic Sciences provides some very specialized services such as book and newspaper scanning, microfiche to microfilm conversions, and long-term paper and microfilm storage and retrieval. This creates many new cross-selling opportunities for us.”
Gregory Colton, outgoing President of Graphic Sciences, Inc., added, “We believe that a larger organization will allow us to provide a wider array of services to our customers. Currently we scan and deliver our customers’ documents onto digital media, such as a DVD, thumb drive or a file on a server. With Intellinetics we will be able to deliver the anywhere, anytime access to those files that our customers have been requesting. We are enthusiastic about what Graphic Sciences and Intellinetics together can do for our customers.” Mr. Colton plans to retire after a transition period to ensure a smooth management integration of Graphic Sciences.
“The exceptional customer trust in Graphic Sciences, and the goodwill created over years, is a testament to the Graphic Sciences unwavering commitment to putting quality and data security first. This culture has its roots in the leadership of Gregory Colton and Tom Liebold, Vice President and General Manager of Graphic Sciences, and we appreciate and expect to benefit from the business and team they have built over the last forty years,” concluded Mr. DeSocio.
