PALO ALTO, USA: Businesses of all sizes are experiencing information overload – the barrage of papers, e-mails, electronic documents and other forms of content that are circulated on a daily basis. For small and mid-sized businesses (SMB), cutting through the clutter can be a time consuming and expensive task. Enter DocuShare Express – Xerox Corporation’s content management software, tailored exclusively for the SMB market to help manage business critical documents with ease and affordability.
DocuShare Express is an electronic filing system that provides easy storage, retrieval and sharing of information. Its Web-based folders can accommodate paper and digital content ranging from scanned documents, spreadsheets and Word documents to e-mails, blogs and wikis. DocuShare Express also includes a quick install process that rapidly uploads the program and requires little technical knowledge to install.
“Smaller businesses can find it tough to avoid the black hole of information overload,” said David Smith, vice president, DocuShare Business Unit, Xerox. “DocuShare Express puts SMBs on equal ground with large enterprises when it comes to managing information and gaining efficiencies.”
Keeping track of paper and digital information can be difficult in a small business setting where administrative resources are limited. For example, in a doctor’s office regulatory materials, pharmacy procedures and training manuals need to be updated frequently and can be costly to print, store and keep organized. DocuShare Express allows employees to review materials online, anytime – fostering communication and collaboration without straining the budget.
DocuShare Express also includes a time-saving imaging and scanning feature, which enables documents to be uploaded to specific DocuShare folders using special scan cover sheets. Easy upgrades to DocuShare or DocuShare CPX allow SMBs to add more advanced content management capabilities as necessary.
Xerox has also added advanced scanning features to its entire DocuShare content management platform through an Extensible Interface Platform (EIP) connector. By simply touching the screen of an EIP-enabled Xerox multifunction device, users can scan documents directly into DocuShare folders.
The EIP connector, an intuitive one-step scan solution, offers greater efficiencies and environmental gains, since paper files can be viewed, shared and searched online without further duplication or distribution.
Pricing and availability
The entry-level U.S. list price for DocuShare Express starts at $1,800 for 10 users and 10 read-only seats. It will be available through Xerox direct sales representatives and channel partners. DocuShare Express will be rolled out globally starting in September.
The EIP connector is available at no cost for DocuShare Express, DocuShare or DocuShare CPX version 6.0 and above. It can be downloaded in September at http://docushare.xerox.com.
