Xerox Engineering Releases Intranet Docs 3.0

Press release from the issuing company

STAMFORD, Conn., Xerox Engineering Systems (XES), a subsidiary of Xerox Corporation, today announced the general availability of Intranet Docs 3.0 - a document management software suite that allows users immediate Web-based access to view, edit, mail and print wide-format documents using a standard Internet browser, when combined with an XES scanning and printing solution. The newly updated version of Intranet Docs provides users greater flexibility with the addition of a Redlining feature and Activity Reporting Module (ARM). "The new version of Intranet Docs represents our continued effort to offer engineers the software tools best suited to sharing and revising their work with utmost ease," said Rich Virga, worldwide software segment manager at Xerox Engineering Systems. "This announcement further establishes XES as a full-service solution provider of both hardware and software to the CAD market." The Redlining module allows users to add both graphic and textual notations to documents, using ViewMark(tm), which permits users to zoom in on specific sections of a document and then e-mail a hyperlink containing an exact pointer to the desired section. These markup notations can be stored and easily transferred to another user and viewed along with any section of the original document. This allows customers to share proposed changes to documents without altering the images in the organization's document database. The Activity Reporting Module creates a wide variety of reports that track system usage. This allows administrators to determine who is searching for and accessing which documents on the system. The ARM's reports can be used in conjunction with DirectSight(tm) technology, which greatly reduces network traffic by staging portions of documents on Intranet Docs servers and delivering them as needed to the user. Intranet Docs 3.0 is capable of supporting and managing anywhere from 15,000 to 2 million documents in both Intra- and Internet environments without requiring any plug-ins or client software.
