Square 9 Softworks was founded in 2001 as a division of InfiNet Business Systems. As an ECM (Enterprise Content Management) solutions provider and software integration house, InfiNet Business Systems delivered document driven solutions to a broad range of organizations while developing custom solution extenders for technology providers such as Kofax, and Sharp USA. In 2005 a separate product development division was created to focus on the development of standalone solutions for document capture and workflow.
In 2006 Square 9 Softworks was separately incorporated as a result of the tremendous growth in its SmartSearch product line. As Square 9’s market share continued to grow with the rapid development of an international channel sales model, additional products were developed and released. The Square 9 product suite includes SmartCapture for automating document capture and image processing, FreeForm, a web based solution for replacing paper based forms process and GlobalSearch, a cross platform web client for document delivery.
Today, Square 9 has evolved into an industry leading developer of ECM solutions with a network of Resellers extending throughout the Americas and into Western Europe as well as Africa and Australia. In addition to its software development division, Square 9 also serves a growing demand for integrated solutions with its professional services practice. The Square 9 Professional Services Group helps organizations to develop even greater workflow efficiencies by integrating ECM with line of business applications through the addition of web based forms design and variable data printing.
