Press release from the issuing company

SAN DIEGO, August 5, 2003-- Document Sciences Corporation, a proven leader and innovator in automating creation and delivery of enterprise business communications, and SYSCOM, Inc., a leading provider of end-to-end information technology services, today announced a partnership and marketing agreement between the two organizations. Under the terms of the agreement, SYSCOM will provide reseller services for Document Sciences’ award-winning xPression architecture, integrating xPression’s capabilities with IBM Content Manager implementations. XPression will also be featured at SYSCOM’s WebSphere Innovation Center in Maryland, a certified center authorized by IBM focusing on Business Integration using the enterprise application integration middleware offerings of the IBM WebSphere Family of Products. “Document Sciences xPression product when combined with IBM’s Content Manager and SYSCOM’s system integration expertise will provide a powerful solution for customers content processing needs across their enterprise allowing them to reduce costs, improve customer service and automate their document production processes,” stated Dean Larsen, SYSCOM's Regional Director of Sales. “xPression’s J2EE architecture running in an IBM WebSphere Application Server environment will provide significant added value to our customers by allowing them to leverage their investments in IBM infrastructure.” xPression's J2EE component-based architecture is designed to integrate with an organization's existing business workflows to create and deliver both real-time and high volume business communications, highly customized for each recipient. Unlike traditional document automation systems, universal content processing (UCP) services such as xPression, are architected for tight integration with existing systems, data, and workflows. xPression runs on WebSphere application servers and uses XML as a common language for data interchange, coupled with Web Services that connect to an organization's existing workflow components, allowing disparate systems to communicate with one another, radically increasing efficiency of creation and delivery of business communications from sales, administration, compliance, customer service and direct marketing departments. The IBM Content Manager portfolio provides the enterprise content management infrastructure to store, access, and manage to the full spectrum of digital information generated in e-business – from vertical line of business applications to customer service, ERP and supply chain management. The Content Manager portfolio manages and integrates access to scanned images, facsimiles, electronic office documents, XML and HTML files, computer output, audio and video. This integrated content can accelerate business process automation across the enterprise for small, medium and large e-businesses. SYSCOM implements large-scale, high-volume image, document and content management applications using IBM's Content Manager product set. SYSCOM's expertise in enabling high-volume systems provides customers with highly efficient, cost-effective solutions — solutions that reduce cycle times and significantly improve processing efficiency. “SYSCOM’s expertise and experience with IBM solutions will be invaluable to customers seeking to fully and efficiently leverage their investments in Content Manager and WebSphere in concert with xPression’s content processing capabilities,” said Jack McGannon, President and CEO, Document Sciences Corporation. “We are excited to add them to our list of key resellers.”
