Forest City Success Story

A Single Platform for All Real Estate Needs

Forest City

OpenText offers a holistic vision of document management, workflow, records retention, and collaboration.

“We’re at a point in technology where we look at strategic partners. It was time that we moved away from the one-off solutions and create a technology platform that can serve the full lifecycle of the assets that we develop and manage. As a result, we selected a few strategic partners, OpenText being one of them because OpenText not only manages documents, OpenText is a company that has the holistic vision of document management, workflow, records retention, and collaboration. ECM solutions will also be instrumental in helping us meet the Sarbanes-Oxley Act Section 404 compliance.”

— Raj Patel, Chief Information Officer and Senior Vice President, Forest City Ratner Companies
