The Carl E. Nelson Best Practices Award was established to recognize
excellence in the Enterprise Content Management (ECM) field.
This award provides an exciting and unique way for end user
organizations to share their ECM project implementations with their
peers and for ECM solution providers to showcase the ROI that
their solutions can achieve.
Dome manufacturer Geometrica submitted its entry based upon the
use of a ‘wiki’ to implement a ISO9001 quality management
system, and further develop it into a full knowledge management system.
The company now also uses its wiki for information sharing with
clients, suppliers and potential clients. Geometrica’s entry has
garnered them a finalist position in the Small Company Category
(100 employees or less). Wikis are a new tool for effective
collaboration in document creation and editing. Geometrica has
found that using a wiki enables the experts in the organization —
the wiki users — to read, edit and maintain documents right at
points of use.
Geometrica, a Cypress, Texas based organization, provides
metal domes for architectural use and to cover large stockpiles
of bulk materials. Domes are the most efficient solution for
long-span covers. Geometria’s galvanized-steel or aluminium
structures make domes even more attractive because they are
maintenance-free and can be assembled by local crews without
any special equipment. Where uncovered piles are already in
service, these domes may be installed right over the operating
piles with little or no downtime.

ceremony banquet on 20 April 2010 in Philadelphia, PA.
