Xerox Fosters Office Collaboration With Cost-Effective Document Management Software; All-New DocuShare 3.0 Architecture Offers High-End Features at Affordable Price
ROCHESTER, N.Y., Sept. 5, 2002 -- Xerox Corporation (NYSE: XRX) today introduced DocuShare(R) 3.0, its next-generation Web-based document and content management software that expands the way people can share information and collaborate in the office.
Incorporating features that meet the needs of both small businesses and global enterprises, the new software is designed to deliver advanced performance and simplicity starting at less than $4,500.
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 provides a complete document management solution fostering better office collaboration among workers in document-intensive environments.
"Xerox DocuShare 3.0 answers the demand for quick-to-implement, affordable content management systems," said Susan Feldman, research vice president for content management and retrieval software at IDC. "Particularly for content management applications that need to integrate scanned documents into the workflow, DocuShare provides an easy pathway to tag and add them to the digital collection."
Existing DocuShare users have already realized substantial benefits from the collaborative system. Cisco Corporation's legal department, for example, expects a two-year savings of more than $250,000 because it is scanning, storing and retrieving contracts in DocuShare repositories instead of using a third party to burn CD's and connect with the company database. This solution simplified its contract management process, slashing it by 37 steps.
Built on an all-new Java platform, DocuShare 3.0 runs on Windows(TM), Linux and Solaris(TM) systems. New and enhanced features in DocuShare 3.0 include:
DocuShare's multiple levels of security, accessibility for the visually impaired (ADA 508C compliance), and support of multiple server and desktop operating systems have made it a popular choice for government organizations.
Existing customers can easily 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.
