IBM Lotus Quickr 8.1.1 combined with IBM enterprise content management capability addresses a broad spectrum of collaboration, document sharing, and content management needs.

Users can use the IBM Lotus Quickr Web interface or the Quickr connectors for a consolidated view of content in Quickr places and content in their ECM repository.
