Latest Version of Xerox DocuShare Delivers Two Content Management Software Products on One Platform
With DocuShare 6.0 and DocuShare CPX 6.0, Xerox provides two distinct ECM products on one unified technology platform - DocuShare for basic content services and DocuShare CPX for advanced content and business process management. Both products support users at varied levels, such as guest, read-only and full DocuShare or CPX, all from a single server, with the ability to upgrade users instantly to a new level without installing any additional software. This allows organizations to tailor access levels for individuals based on project-specific requirements, making it easier and more cost-effective to deploy the software enterprise-wide.
Additionally, DocuShare 6.0 and CPX 6.0 help users manage content and information by expanding imaging capabilities that allow for higher volume image capture - at least 500,000 images per day. Also, one-step scanning from both Xerox and non-Xerox devices gives enterprises more flexibility over how information is entered into DocuShare, and performance enhancements provide access to millions of documents across the enterprise.
DocuShare 6.0 has been optimized to meet a wide range of customer needs, from
small to medium businesses to larger enterprises. Key new features include:
a.. Improved scanning and production-level imaging capabilities, which enable customers to securely process and store the continuous, high-speed submission of content such as medical records, insurance applications or loan documents.
b. Scan Cover Sheets that simplify and streamline how hard copy documents are scanned and processed within DocuShare. In CPX 6.0, users can also leverage this feature to trigger key business processes, such as the automated filing of a scanned invoice or generation of a receipt when filing an expense report. The Scan Cover Sheets feature utilizes Xerox's proprietary glyph technology, which was developed at the company's Palo Alto Research Center (PARC).
c. Additional features, previously available only in CPX, are now featured in DocuShare 6.0. They include secure, managed blogs and wikis with "What You See is What You Get" (WYSIWYG) editing capabilities; enhanced e-mail support where e-mail content from any e-mail system can be directly sent into DocuShare; and integration with Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS) and Web portal systems compliant with Java Specification Request (JSR) 168.
In addition to these features, DocuShare CPX 6.0 provides new capabilities such as improved compliance reporting, workflow enhancements, and pre-defined templates that leverage XML technology to transform ordinary Microsoft Excel spreadsheets into electronic forms (e-forms), which link to databases, applications and frequently updated reports. These can be automatically updated whenever the data changes.
The entry-level U.S. list price for a complete DocuShare 6.0 system starts at
$3,600 and a DocuShare CPX 6.0 system starts at $36,000. Existing DocuShare
customers with a Gold support agreement can upgrade to DocuShare 6.0 at no
charge or to DocuShare CPX 6.0 at significant discounts.
