Xerox Launches Two New Versions of DocuShare CMS

Mar 21, 2006

Xerox Corporation has unveiled DocuShare CPX and DocuShare 5.0, two new enterprise content management software products built on a single technology platform. Businesses can use one or both applications to handle their content and document management needs, such as meeting privacy or disclosure-related government regulations.

DocuShare CPX is designed for people to share content, collaborate, and automate critical work processes such as processing mortgage loan applications or routing resumes through a human resources department. In addition, DocuShare CPX supports Web conferencing and social computing features such as blogs and wikis that can be managed and stored as legally binding records for auditing later. In addition to the core capabilities of DocuShare 5.0, DocuShare CPX features four new software components to improve productivity and streamline work processes: Content-centric Collaboration; Content Process Automation; Content Assimilation and Reuse; and Advanced Content and Records. DocuShare 5.0 can be used as a standalone application for managing day-to-day business content or through new search capabilities where workers can access data through multiple connected DocuShare and CPX servers. DocuShare software is entirely Web-based, works across multiple operating systems, and can integrate with enterprise infrastructure databases from Oracle, IBM, and Microsoft. It also works with Internet Explorer, Netscape, Safari, Opera, and Mozilla Firefox Web browsers. Both software products can integrate with other Xerox offerings such as FreeFlow SMARTsend scanning software and WorkCentre Pro advanced multifunction systems to create a complete document lifecycle management solution. SMARTsend allows people to convert hardcopy documents to digital formats, while Xerox's WorkCentre Pro systems combine printing, copying, scanning, faxing and emailing in one office device.

The entry-level list price for a complete DocuShare 5.0 system with 20 seats starts at $4,500, and a 100-seat system of DocuShare CPX starts at $45,000. Additional seat and volume pricing is available for both products. Existing DocuShare customers with a Gold support agreement can upgrade to DocuShare 5.0 at no charge or to DocuShare CPX at discounts.
