Ektron has introduced DMS400, a document management system for its CM system designed to help organizations get their information assets under control in a coherent, automated way, claims the company. Ektron says the offering allows users to collaborate on projects, as well as search and access documents, images, multimedia and other information assets within a process-driven, Web-based solution.
Further, says Ektron, DMS400 enables organizations to streamline processes for creating, editing, publishing and sharing documents and other assets while providing them with real-time monitoring of information to address accountability and auditing issues associated with managing these files.
DMS400 is built from the ground up on the Microsoft .Net Framework. Ektron says its features include:
- collaboration tools for users to share information, work together on content-related projects, publish information to the Web and foster an environment for improved productivity;
- automation tools that provide a process-driven framework linking all workers and streamlining manual tasks;
- reporting tools to place real-time information about people, process and information at the desktop of administrators and managers;
- search functionality to allow individuals to locate and access documents and assets based on indexed criteria and full text regardless of where they reside;
- industry-specific business process automation capabilities to permit organizations to eliminate previously manual, paper-based business processes and tasks by automating them on the Web; and
- globalization tools.
