Canto Releases Cumulus Office Suite

Jul 08, 2003

Canto, a provider of digital asset management solutions, has announced the launch of Cumulus Office Suite. Cumulus Office Suite is designed to allow users to efficiently manage office documents and presentations created with Microsoft Office products. Cumulus Office Suite is an Option that spans across the entire Cumulus product line, encompassing the Single User Edition, Workgroup Edition, and Enterprise Edition. When cataloging, Office Suite captures all text contained in the documents, including the main text itself, header information or foot notes, slide text, and slide notes. In addition to this, it captures information such as author, date, and version contained in Microsoft Office Compound Documents. Once documents have been cataloged, Cumulus allows them to be searched. This means that cataloged assets can now be found for reuse or for integration into new material. If users have installed PowerPoint on the cataloging machine, this Option will even catalog single slides of an entire presentation and create thumbnails and previews. Office Suite is immediately available on Windows, Mac OS, Mac OS X, Solaris, and Linux platforms. Office Suite is available as a single user license for the Cumulus Single User Edition and as a network license for the Cumulus Workgroup Edition and the Cumulus Enterprise Edition. Users have a choice of English, German, French, or Japanese language versions. It can be purchased from a Canto partner or in Canto's eShop.
