Computhink Works With Novell to Provide an Extensive Suite of Integrated Imaging and Document Management Facilities for GroupWise

    LOMBARD, IL (ots) - Exclusive Image Viewing and Integrated Document Management (IDM) Solution Extensions Support GroupWise 6 and 6.5

    Computhink has collaborated with Novell to create a new version of GroupWise Imaging that makes available extensive document imaging capabilities directly to the users of GroupWise 6 and 6.5. Computhink is the only company to offer this type of image integration within GroupWise, as well as offering the ViewWise Integrated Document Management product family with its GroupWise Integration options.

    "Novell and Computhink have been involved in joint research and development projects since 1996," said Kelly Wagman, director of collaboration marketing at Novell. "It is this history between the two companies that helps ensure seamless integration between our respective products."

    The new version of GroupWise Imaging merges desktop and electronic publishing into a single, collaborative environment. When combined with the GroupWise Universal Mailbox, the imaging product allows users to capture, view, store, edit, annotate and email scanned documents across corporate networks and intranets.

    "GroupWise Imaging and Computhink's ViewWise IDM suite provides small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) with a broad range of options of complete and professional IDM/EDM capabilities at desktop prices," said John Torkelson, CEO of Computhink. "The latest upgrade to GroupWise Imaging illustrates our shared resolve to meet the current and future needs of the corporate market. Now our joint customers have the choice of simply adding GroupWise Imaging to GroupWise, or installing ViewWise, our Enterprise-class IDM/Imaging product and tightly integrating to GroupWise with either GroupWise Mail agent or our GroupWise Connector module."

    GroupWise Imaging supports a broad range of industry-standard image file formats, such as TIF and JPG. The software can be used to convert files to enable fast and efficient sharing of document and images across corporate email systems.

    "GroupWise Imaging breaks down the barriers between electronic and paper documents, and raises the bar on what constitutes a full- featured, Information-sharing environment," said Torkelson. "It fills a gap in collaborative document management by allowing users to do virtually everything they can do with paper -- without the clutter. They can highlight, black out, rubber stamp, attach sticky notes and circulate documents to multiple viewers, simultaneously."

    Computhink now also has announced its new GroupWise Mail Agent as a ViewWise Enterprise optional module that allows the Novell GroupWise users to save GroupWise emails and their attachments directly into a ViewWise Enterprise IDM system and launch ViewWise directly from within GroupWise. This then provides the full range of IDM features for retaining, tracking and auditing email correspondence along with many other types of documents and media. The user can simply select and save directly to the ViewWise input tray for indexing.

    "The series of products integrating ViewWise with GroupWise meet a serious need for electronic document viewing and editing tools that provide a clearly defined audit trail," added Torkelson. "This is particularly important for the legal sector, for example, where records of ongoing communications must be retained and sometimes submitted as evidence in actual cases."

    The new GroupWise Imaging option has been developed by Computhink in partnership with Novell Inc. and is marketed exclusively by Computhink.

    Computhink Inc., with corporate offices located near Chicago, Illinois, offers best-in-class IDM and image-enabling software for enterprise wide information sharing to government, utility and business organizations. Customers include the State of Georgia, New York City Department of Transportation, the Heart Group of Paducah, Will County, State of Kentucky, National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration, U.S.D.A., and Virginia Department of Housing & Community Development. Computhink received the 2002 Advanced Imaging of the Year award as best Commercial Business & Communications Imaging product.
