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