Xerox Corp. introduced DocuShare 3.0, its next-generation Web-based document and content management software, which will start at less than $4,500.
According to the company, DocuShare 3.0 is an enhanced version of Xerox software that is already used by more than 700,000 people to securely and effectively capture, store, manage and share hardcopy and electronic content. DocuShare 3.0 is designed to provide a complete document management solution that fosters better office collaboration among workers in document-intensive environments.
Built on an all-new Java platform, DocuShare 3.0 runs on Solaris, Linux, and Windows systems.
New and enhanced features in DocuShare 3.0 include:
Direct scan, which allows users to scan documents from Xerox Document Centre systems to a DocuShare community "inbox" where the documents are stored and password-protected. Direct-scanned documents may be published to the Web, routed via e-mail, or edited without additional processing.
Document routing accelerates the document review process. DocuShare users should be able to distribute content for review or publishing by creating a routing slip. For instance, through a single routing slip, an employee could get authorization for a purchase from a manager, requisition the product through the purchasing department, and request the bill to be paid by the accounts payable department.
Save directly to DocuShare from common software applications such as Microsoft Word, Microsoft Outlook and Adobe Acrobat. DocuShare 3.0 also supports the Web Distributed Authoring and Versioning (WebDAV) protocol, allowing office workers to collaboratively edit and manage files through DocuShare.
Current customers can upgrade to DocuShare 3.0. The software will be sold through Xerox direct sales representatives, agents, concessionaires, Xerox Business Partners and Teleweb sales channels. The entry-level list price for a complete DocuShare system with 10 seats is $4,145, and a 100-seat system is $9,995. Worldwide availability begins Sept. 30.
