Hyland Software Releases Version 6.2 of OnBase ECM Suite

Nov 10, 2006

Hyland Software Inc. has announced the release and immediate availability of version 6.2 of the company's enterprise content management (ECM) software suite, OnBase. OnBase 6.2 features features new, vertically tailored functionality for healthcare providers and government agencies.

New functionality in OnBase 6.2 includes: a Business Rules Engine to give line managers with a high degree of daily control over the configuration of rules governing high volume business processes such as health insurance claims handling, lending, and hospital denials management; Document Composition for Microsoft Word to automate the task of generating formal business documents such as overdue billing notices, human resources ‘At Will' clauses, and service quotations. This feature affords business users the flexibility to configure these documents using Microsoft Word templates. Because the templates are stored in OnBase, they can be managed in a completely auditable fashion. OnBase can then automatically generate an up-to-date version of a template at the appropriate point in a given workflow, populate it with relevant data from multiple systems, and then email the completed document to intended recipients; and Integration for Oracle E-Business Suite 11i, which expands the functionality of the Oracle E-Business Suite 11i as a system of record by connecting data contained in externally created content with their corresponding Oracle transaction records. This Oracle-validated integration can help employees make decisions faster by enabling them to use their primary business application to retrieve and process transactional content.

The Integration for Microsoft InfoPath leverages Microsoft's forms application to enable business users to create electronic forms using familiar Microsoft Office applications. InfoPath forms can be used to gather data from different sources, inserted into a business process using OnBase's XML-aware workflow and stored in the OnBase repository.
