ACOM Solutions, Inc. has announced it will begin marketing a Web -based enterprise content management (ECM) solution through its Long Beach-based eBusiness Division and its Duluth, Georgia-headquartered iSeries division in early first quarter, 2006.
ACOM's EZContentManager is built on an architecture comprised of three central elements: the Content Management Utility and User Interface, the Capture Workstation, and the Workflow Engine. EZContentManager accepts text and image documents from any source, including ACOM's document and payment solutions, storing them in a central SQL repository. Documents from the ACOM solutions are indexed and archived automatically as they are generated; externally obtained documents that are scanned into EZContentManager are indexed as part of the scanning/archiving process. Content is protected through four-level security.
Documents can be retrieved and viewed on the desktop via browser or through Windows Explorer, and distribution options include printed-paper copies and the solution's integrated email and fax interfaces. The solution's integrated workflow process coordinates all phases, automates usage control, and provides a full range of reports.
