Formpipe

Enterprise content management

Formpipe is an IT company, active in the ECM (Enterprise Content Management) segment. The company develops and sells products that structure the information flow for companies, municipalities and organisations. Its customers are in mainly in the public sector (75%) but the company also commercializes to the private sector (25%). Formpipe offers ECM in four different areas: Case and Document Management, Customer Communications Management, Grants Management and Structured Data Archiving.

Formpipe is riding the digitalization trend. Companies, organisations, municipalities etc. are all digitalizing their operations, which is something that Formpipe wants to take advantage of. Furthermore, the company has recently begun its migration from having a revenue model with upfront payments to a SaaS model (Software as a Service) with recurring revenues. This has initially affected revenues negatively, but should give better visibility and stability in earnings going forward.

The company has a wide variety of different products, which is expensive to maintain compared to having just a few. Although this diversifies the revenue streams, there is a risk that the overlay costs are not offset by this positive effect. While the public sector can be described as stable, there are often long sell cycles and restricted budgets that dampen the selling process.
