CGI Squared Announces i-version, Online Automated Conversion and Hosting Tool
Press release from the issuing company
London, England - 24 May 2007 - CGI Squared Limited, the creative agency and technology solutions unit of The CGI Group, a leading provider of worldwide print and communications solutions, today announced the launch of i-version(tm), a simple to use and cost-effective web based solution that instantly converts printed documents to web-enabled interactive documents.
The proprietary i-version system uses a high-speed document conversion engine that guarantees complete accuracy when automatically converting print files into interactive .html versions. All documents are completely searchable and are easy to load, navigate, search and control.
"The i-version solution is designed to address the growing demand from clients who want to publish their documents simultaneously in printed format and on the web", commented John White, Managing Director of CGI Squared, "without having to completely redesign their information and manage their information in two completely separate processes."
The system is offered as a 'Self-Service' or 'Managed Service' subscription. 'Self-Service' requires the client to upload its own documents, create the custom table of contents and provides the client complete control over their i-version account for their own use. The 'Managed Service' subscription is available for clients who prefer that CGI manage conversion and table of contents creation. Regardless of service type, the data is hosted in CGI data centers and available 24 hours a day.
i-version is the most cost-effective service of this type available in the marketplace and has excellent applications in financial services, pharmaceuticals, shareholder communications and several other markets.
The solution is already being used by CGI clients and can be reviewed along with samples, customer testimonials and pricing plans at www.i-version.com.
