• ECi Software Solutions acquires Office Document Consulting

        • ECi Software Solutions has acquired Office Document Consulting Inc. (ODC), a provider of sales automation software for the office equipment, managed print and IT channels. 

          ODC’s DOCassess product suite includes sales automation tools for assessments and proposals, asset mapping, QBRs (Quarterly Business Reviews), TCO (total cost of ownership) calculators and fleet management. ODC will become part of ECi’s Field Service division, and the team will report to ECi’s Field Service President, Laryssa Alexander. 

          Founded in 2011, ODC supports dealers around the world looking to offer managed print services, document management and solutions selling through its DOCassess suite of products. With this acquisition, ECi has broadened its bench of business software capabilities to better serve office equipment and managed print services customers. DOCassess, when combined with ECi’s e-automate, creates an integrated proposal generation tool that will give users real-time visibility into their sales proposals and pipeline, thanks to bi-directional communication between the two solutions. Accordingly, ECi will continue to fully support efforts to sell, deploy and service DOCassess as ODC has always done. 

          Ron Books, CEO of ECi said, “ECi is always looking to innovate our current offerings to aid our customers in their goal of profitably growing their businesses while competing in the marketplace. DOCassess is a perfect example of an addition that will allow us to deliver the true ‘one-stop’ solution that our customers want and need to compete.” 

          Mike Lamothe, President and Founder of ODC added, “I founded ODC nearly eight years ago to help managed print services providers automate and simplify the assessment process, allowing them to react more quickly and giving them a competitive advantage—both of which are principles that ECi holds near and dear as well. Joining our talent and resources with ECi’s will help DOCassess reach new customers and have an even greater impact on the market, and we couldn’t imagine working with a better partner.”

          The deal closed on 1st October and terms were not disclosed.
