History[edit]

Elcom was founded in 1996 by John Anstey.[2] Elcom was originally involved in the development of the Australian Taxation Office's online e-tax platform[3] before entering the content management market and releasing the first version of CommunityManager.NET.[4]

In late 2010, Elcom expanded into the United States with an office in New York.[5] and in August 2012 opened its second US office in San Francisco, California.[6][7]

In 2011, the company rebranded CommunityManager.NET to elcomCMS.[8]

Market[edit]

Elcom targets mid-market organizations. Their clients include Hyundai[9] and Austrade.[10][11]

According to the company's website, Elcom was recognised in the 2010, 2011 and 2012 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Web Content Management report.[12][13]

The company has also entered the document management market[14] via connectors to systems such as HP Trim and SharePoint.
