Significant Milestones Include Release of Unique and Innovative NextPage 2 Document Retention Enterprise Application, Insightful Document Retention Research, Drafting Ecma Whitepaper on Open Office Standard and Receiving the 2006 Best Business Innovation Award

NextPage today announced the highlights of a successful year, including an innovative product release and strategic industry milestones, as it continues to expand its services as a leader in document management and collaboration technology. The release of NextPage 2 Document Retention provided enterprise customers with an effective way to track documents across e-mail, hard drives, removable media and servers.

The need for a solution such as NextPage 2 Document Retention was validated by research results that clearly indicate document retention policies are failing at the desktop. The results of this research were released in early October. The study indicates that only 62 percent of the companies surveyed have a document retention policy in place. Of that 62 percent, only 31 percent actively enforce the policy and 61 percent responded that fewer than half of their employees are adhering to their published retention policies.

NextPage continues to be recognized as a leader in building profitable document applications. In 2006, NextPage received the following awards and accolades:

  • Finalist in the Best Overall Company category for the 2006 American Business Awards, whose recipients were selected from more than 1,500 entries from companies of all sizes and in virtually every industry
  • Executives Darren Lee, Tom Ngo and Cydni Tetro were voted by their peers as 2006 Top 100 Venture Capital Entrepreneurs, an honor they have received over the past two years
  • NextPage 2 Document Collaboration won Best Business Innovation Award at the Business and Technology Expo, Utah's premiere business event

"We have achieved significant milestones in 2006 and are encouraged by our customer traction and the momentum that NextPage 2 Document Retention has generated," said Darren Lee, President and Chief Executive Officer of NextPage. "2007 looks to be an even more successful year as we begin serving a greater number of enterprises through the general availability of NextPage 2 Document Retention, helping enterprises manage risk and bring a badly needed level of control and visibility into the rather chaotic environment of desktop documents."

Additional 2006 milestones attained are as follows:

  • As a key member of the Ecma International task force assigned to work on the Open Office standards, NextPage CTO Tom Ngo edited Ecma's white paper on the Office Open XML standard.
