About X-CAGO

Background

 

Established in 2000, X-CAGO is a private technology company based in Roermond, The Netherlands, with an US sales office in Marlton, New Jersey, USA.

 

X-CAGO has developed an innovative, and patented Enterprise Content Management (ECM) platform, which bridges the gap between the print, archive and online worlds.

 

Through its advanced technology, X-CAGO delivers creative solutions over the Internet to readers anywhere in the world, and is recognized as a true innovator of new products and technologies.

 

X-CAGO’s software solutions manage growing volumes of (printed) media content by letting clients securely capture analog (paper or microfilm) as well as digital documents (PDF, XML) and information, organize and catalog this information and deliver knowledge on demand. In short, the software enables our customers to capture, store and distribute (newspaper, magazine, books, internet) content in an efficient and secure way. X-CAGO’s core software modules have underlying patents for their unique segmentation algorithms that deconstructs the layout of newspaper pages into individual constituents, i.e. articles and advertisements.

 

With merely ten years of sales activities and focused efforts in the print media industry, X-CAGO is recognized as a leader in the emerging ECM market segment with more than 200 customers worldwide and a continuously growing client base.

 

We believe XML is the key for managing content management, preservation, portability and exchange. X-CAGO is being recognized to be the clear market leader in automated ECM XML systems by delivering technologies that turn existing information into knowledge.
