First mobile app for EFM integrates with SuccessFactors solutions - driving
efficiency, reducing costs and helping HR Departments to meet compliance

WATERLOO, ON, March 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - OpenText™ (NASDAQ: OTEX) (TSX:
OTC), the global leader in Enterprise Information Management (EIM), today
announced major enhancements to its Employee File Management (EFM) software
for use with SAP® solutions. The additional functionality empowers Human
Resources (HR) departments, helping them to go digital and securely operate at
new levels of speed and efficiency. OpenText's new EFM 4.0 integrates with
solutions from SuccessFactors, an SAP company, via the new cloud connector
interface feature, which helps solve growing compliance challenges associated
with on-premise/hybrid environments.OpenText EFM 4.0 also now includes a
mobile app, which gives business users access to employee files from anywhere
and at anytime, once they have been centrally stored in EFM.

To better serve employees and attract new talent, HR teams are racing to
implement systems that comprehensively manage all documentation for each
employee from the day they are hired to the day they retire. Cloud-based
solutions like those from SuccessFactors, enable users to run performance
reviews, define goals, and digitize documents to accelerate processes and
reduce costs. Many times, HR department personnel also need to maintain
on-premise systems, resulting in hybrid environments that can complicate
compliance and pose security risks.

OpenText's new EFM cloud connector feature addresses that issue head-on by
helping to bridge the gap between cloud and on-premise environments. The
solution allows users to harness the benefits of SuccessFactors' offerings and
then optimally control all content in a centralized repository, which can help
simplify compliance and streamline content management. OpenText EFM also
provides search, document identification/classification, process automation,
and workflow capabilities to eliminate many time-intensive and error-prone
manual processes that currently plague HR. Users can also seamlessly import
SuccessFactors forms into OpenText EFM for SAP solutions automatically without
using IT resources.

Satisfying growing mobility demands, OpenText also announced a new mobile app
that provides an easy-to-use interface and gives users fast access to the
functionality of the OpenText EFM solution. Available on both iPad and Android
devices, the app helps users securely connect to necessary resources and
information in the field at anytime - a capability that is becoming
increasingly important in today's fast-paced HR landscape.

"Many of our customers recognize the benefits of making their HR processes
completely digital but struggle to manage content across cloud and on-premise
environments," said Muhi Majzoub, OpenText's senior vice president,
Engineering. "Right in line with our EIM strategy, these new EFM offerings in
support of SAP solutions can help companies take full advantage of their
information across the enterprise so that they can better service employees
and ultimately drive business. Our strong relationships with SAP and other
industry experts help us continue to deliver innovative solutions that solve
key customer challenges."


SAP resells EFM as the SAP Employee File Management application by OpenText.
The cloud connector feature and the mobile app will be available as part of
OpenText's Employee File Management 4.0 solution. The offerings will be on
display at the upcoming SAPPHIRE® NOW and ASUG Annual Conference, May 14-16 in
Orlando. General availability is planned for May 2013.
