Captiva: Digital Mailroom & CEO Honored At AIIM 2003

Press release from the issuing company

AIIM 2003 SAN DIEGO--April 17, 2003-- Captiva Software Corp.'s new Digital Mailroom was named the "Best New Product" of AIIM's 2003 Conference and Exposition, held last week in New York City. The award, presented by AIIM's E-DOC Magazine, was among the publication's inaugural awards created to recognize the best products available to improve customers' bottom lines. A panel of 20 industry experts, product users, analysts and consultants in the enterprise content management (ECM) industry served as judges for the awards. The Digital Mailroom was selected over the many new products on display by several hundred conference exhibitors. Introduced at the event, Captiva's Digital Mailroom is an automated classification and routing system for digitized images of inbound mail and electronic communications. It offers a single point of entry for a company's incoming mail, faxes, e-mail and electronic communications streams. The system automatically recognizes and routes digitized images of documents and data to the appropriate department or person for further processing while concurrently providing full auditing and tracking capabilities. "All of our judges were quite impressed with the Digital Mailroom -- so much so that we felt it was hands-down the most exciting new product introduced at our conference this year," said John Mancini, president of AIIM International. "The Digital Mailroom's value proposition of reduced operational costs, accelerated business processes and the elimination of cumbersome paper as it enters the enterprise is simple, unique and, we believe, quite compelling to the marketplace." In addition to garnering the event's "Best New Product" award, the week held an additional honor for Captiva. Reynolds C. Bish, Captiva's president and CEO, was enlisted into AIIM's prestigious "Company of Fellows," acknowledging his lifetime achievement in the ECM industry, as well as his service on AIIM International's Board of Directors, committees and task forces. Established in 1963, AIIM's Company of Fellows honors those individuals in the association who merit recognition and distinction for their outstanding contributions to the fields of document-based knowledge management, e-business or Internet systems or software. Each award is numbered and assigned in perpetuity. "It is a privilege to be named to the AIIM Company of Fellows. The honor was part of an exciting and very successful event for Captiva," said Bish. "The 'Best New Product' award helps validate the design and market potential of the Digital Mailroom, and our entire staff did an outstanding job of preparing for the event, demonstrating our new and existing solution capabilities and setting the stage for further successes in the future." The AIIM 2003 Conference & Exposition, co-located with the ON DEMAND Digital Printing & Publishing Conference & Exposition, attracted 27,200 attendees (not counting press and exhibitors), 438 exhibiting companies and 338 press members and industry analysts.
