New eDOCS version from OpenText
OpenText has released eDOCS DM 5.3, which the company describes as a significant upgrade to the eDOCS product portfolio, designed to help lower total cost of ownership and deliver a more individualized user experience. The company reports the new version of eDOCS also features tight integration with Open Text ECM Suite 2010 for customers requiring scalability across large enterprise deployments.
OpenText says eDOCS complements its product portfolio and is widely used by law firms, public sector agencies and across other industries to help reduce the time and complexity associated with storing, organizing and locating information. Extensive platform and structural updates in the new eDOCS DM lay the foundation for the next major release slated for 2012.
To help lower costs, eDOCS DM 5.3 adds support for remote deployment tools that significantly reduce the work required to deploy eDOCS to user communities. Rapid system deployments are achieved without visiting workstations, and maintenance is simplified with Web and Microsoft Windows utilities that support centralized, as well as delegated, system management.
Now with support for Microsoft Office 2010, OpenText claims eDOCS provides a rich user experience that minimizes time spent learning the document and records management system and boosts productivity. To accommodate a variety of work styles, eDOCS DM gives users the ability to easily create their own eDOCS ribbons from within Microsoft Office 2010 applications.
For very large enterprisewide deployments, eDOCS incorporates updates and integrations that allow customers to tap the OpenText ECM Suite 2010 for comprehensive library and archiving capabilities, helping to eliminate islands of information, improve information discovery, and reduce storage and infrastructure costs. In 2011, eDOCS customers will also be able to take advantage of OpenText social media applications to boost organizational effectiveness.
