Toward the paperless office
Xerox has announced the DocuShare Virtual Filing System, which has been designed to dramatically reduce the need for physical filing cabinets while providing users with immediate access to the information they require.
Xerox explains that the system includes a document storage assessment, scanning technology, software, set up and user training. Once paper archives are uploaded into the virtual filing system’s drawers, documents can be searched by name, category and type.
Xerox has also introduced DocuShare 6.5, an upgrade to its existing version. DocuShare 6.5 can store more than 50 million documents, perform search queries within seconds and supports intake of up to 1 million imaged documents per day. DocuShare 6.5 is also the software in the Virtual Filing System package, the company reports.
The DocuShare Virtual Filing System will be sold in North America through Xerox direct sales starting in June. Select, certified partners will begin to sell the package in July.
DocuShare 6.5 is currently available on Windows platforms through Xerox direct sales and resellers in North America. It will be available worldwide and on other platforms beginning in June. Customers on a maintenance contract will receive a free upgrade to DocuShare 6.5.
