FileNet to Include InfoAccess' Web Technology

InfoAccess Inc. (Bellevue, Wash., www.infoaccess.com) today announced its agreement to provide a customized version of its Transit Central EDM Web publishing solution to FileNet Corp. (Bellevue, Wash., www.filenet.com).

Transit Central EDM adds advanced Web publishing functionality to enterprise document management (EDM) systems. FileNet will market the solution as Panagon Web Publisher. Announcement of the OEM deal, signed in June, was deferred until after FileNet officially announced Panagon Web Publisher on Tuesday. Panagon Web Publisher is being sold and supported by FileNet.

Transit Central solutions use template-based technology to automatically publish standard business documents as designed, fully linked Web sites. Templates allow complete control of Web page layouts to meet corporate publishing standards. One feature of Transit Central is its ability to automatically update Web sites on schedule -- including content, links, indexes, and tables of contents -- which eliminates Webmaster bottlenecks and reduces publishing costs.

Transit Central EDM extends this functionality and creates Web content management solutions by integrating with selected EDM systems. Source documents controlled inside the EDM system can be organized and published as full-function Web sites and online compound documents for line-of-business applications.

Transit Central EDM publishes documents to Web servers, for general access, or back into EDM repositories for controlled-access Web sites. It also allows Web sites to be archived and re-published at a later date. In addition to the version licensed by FileNet, Transit Central EDM is currently integrated with the Docs Open system from PC Docs/Fulcrum (Burlington, Mass., www.pcdocs.com). Other integrations are under development. --Brian Ploskina, Assistant Editor
