Open Text teams with Frontline for upstream

Open Text has tasked The Frontline Group with development of an upstream edition of Livelink.

Open Text Corp. and Houston-based Frontline Group are working together on an Enterprise Content Management (ECM) solution customized to the upstream oil and gas vertical. The solution will be built around Open Text’s flagship Livelink document management suite.


Livelink’s collaboration tools, document, workflow and content management will be offered with The Frontline Group’s process and change management consulting services. Frontline’s solution will offer new ways to link globally dispersed teams of people involved in oil exploration, and will provide a single place for collaboration, information sharing and project document maintenance.


Frontline president Mark Brooker said, ‘Effective collaboration and information sharing result in decisions. Exploration teams from joint venture partner companies all have to work closely together. A single, project-based system lets everyone access and manage information, reducing cycle times and improving decision making.’


Open Text VP Mike Barailol added, ‘The energy sector offers a great opportunity to extend Livelink’s capabilities as we’ve done in pharmaceuticals, financial services, government and other markets.’ The upstream customization will be followed by solutions targeting other sectors of the energy business.
