About Us

The mission of KnowledgeLake is clear and simple. “To enable our customers to realize their full potential by serving them with new and innovative document technologies.”
It began in 1999 with a group of ECM-focused entrepreneurs driven to provide lower cost, but not lower value, document imaging solutions. Their vision propelled KnowledgeLake to be the first company to break into the SharePoint ECM space and the first company to market a document imaging solution on the SharePoint platform in 2003.

What we do

KnowledgeLake has an industry leading R&D team assembled specifically to focus on the latest Microsoft development platforms. In addition, KnowledgeLake has teams of ECM industry veterans who have decades of experience architecting, selling and implementing ECM products and solutions. KnowledgeLake enables its customers to maximize and extend their already sound investments in proven Microsoft technologies such as Microsoft Windows Server, Microsoft SQL Server, Microsoft SharePoint and Microsoft Office.
