NextPage Inc. has announced the launch of NXT 4, a publishing suite for publishers and corporations to secure and deliver information on the Internet, to corporate intranets, and on CD/DVD. NXT 4 is designed for commercial publishers, who provide content on the Web or through other electronic media, and for publishers of corporate reference libraries, which deliver information critical to decision making to employees and clients.
NXT 4 is intended to allow publishers to use one production process to deliver to different electronic media. With NextPage's new library manager application, publishers deliver the same publication simultaneously to the Internet, a customer's intranet, or to CD-ROM. New license management features in NXT 4 allow publishers to apply secure license rights to content delivered on CD and to corporate intranets. License rights features include the ability to lock and unlock content, limit access to users and time out the content after days used or on a specific date. With NXT 4, publishers can also provide real-time updates via the Internet. They can distribute publications to end users in any electronic media, and then deliver real-time updates of content over the Internet to CD/DVD users or corporate intranet users.
Corporations that need to deliver business-critical information to end users, such as auditors, insurance underwriters or other frontline service professionals, can use NXT 4 to reduce risk of noncompliance with features such as a user interface designed for researchers, incremental updates, and content networking with other offices and commercial publishers. Corporations can use NXT 4 in applications such as auditor's reference libraries, help desk knowledgebases, and electronic policy and procedure manuals. Corporations can also use the update distribution feature to distribute incremental updates of information quickly to users. NXT 4 is scheduled to ship by Sept. 30, 2003.
