Halcyon Announces Document Management System v3.0 for IBM i
PETERBOROUGH, England, May 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Ensures Reliable Archiving, Rapid Retrieval, Packaging and Distribution of Business Information, Documents and Reports Held in Spooled Files on the IBM i System
Systems management software provider, Halcyon Software, today announced a new product - Document Management System v 3.0 for the IBM i platform. Â
Document Management System v 3.0 is a comprehensive software package which ensures reliable archiving, rapid retrieval, packaging and distribution of business information, documents and reports held in spooled files on the IBM i system. Â
Businesses can benefit by significantly reducing costs for what is traditionally a labour intensive activity for managing, finding, re-packaging and distributing the relevant information to users within the organisation to allow them to do their jobs effectively. Cost efficiencies are also gained in the rapid retrieval and delivery of information in the right format to external contacts including customers and suppliers.
Key features include indexing of all archived files for rapid retrieval, an easy to use web user interface requiring no specialist IBM i skills, a "sticky note" that marks important information about a particular file that can be instantly viewed by assigned users, and an overlay designer to customise reports and create print overlays for invoices, orders, dispatch notes, etc. Â The solution also has a segmenting and bundling feature that enables subsets of large reports to be created and distributed to pre-defined recipient lists.
The software performs actions on spooled files without the need for program changes such as automatically emailing the summary page of a report or converting them into PDFs or HTML web pages.Â
John Dominic, Vice President of Sales, said, "Halcyon has made a significant investment in the Document Management System software. Â We have engaged with IBM i sites to create a business solution which offers automatic archiving, indexing and superfast retrieval of important information. The new web-based interface modernises and simplifies a traditionally labour intensive activity and saves significant cost."
Document Management System v3.0 is available immediately. Product pricing is tiered and based on IBM processor groups. Halcyon operate a fair pricing policy so that if customers increase the Commercial Processing Workload (CPW) rating of their IBM hardware they will not incur software upgrade fees giving long term reassurance on costs.
