Portland, OR (PRWEB) January 14, 2008
ColumbiaSoft, a leading provider of enterprise-class document management solutions, has released new integration technologies in its latest version of Document Locator, which now supports custom integration with many third-party business software applications. The first major integration package released gives users of Meridian Systems® Prolog Manager software the ability to utilize document management services from within their existing construction project management application.
"This release expands on our vision to develop document management solutions that are faster to deploy and easier to use by lowering the curve of adoption for new users and keeping them in the familiar applications where they are already working," said Carl Azar, vice president of marketing and product development for ColumbiaSoft. "Our new integration technology, combined with our Professional Services approach to optimizing integrations to the requirements of each customer, make it easier than ever for companies to capture all the benefits of enterprise-wide document management without all the costs associated with dramatically changing user behaviors."
Custom Integration Service
The integration technology released in Document Locator version 5.1 allows ColumbiaSoft's Professional Services team to rapidly develop custom integrations for customers so they can associate documents and communications with information in other business systems that manage everything from financial records, to project records, to customer account records. Users of these other business systems can quickly search and retrieve all related files with a simple key-and-click action on any field in their business application. Additional integration points have also been added to support back-end integration between various Document Locator actions and other applications.
Prolog Integration For Construction Document Management
Users of Prolog, a construction project management application, will be the first to benefit from integration. Until now, users of construction project management applications have had only limited capabilities to capture, organize, and search the large volumes of documents and communications generated with each construction project. The Document Locator integration gives Prolog users a unified platform for construction document management across the enterprise that connects documents and information to project records. Prolog users can, while remaining in the Prolog system, search and retrieve all documents related to a specific project, client, or any other data in a Prolog field, while non-Prolog users can also access the same repositories of managed information. Non-Prolog users can also import documents into Document Locator and have those documents automatically linked to the correct Prolog records according to document metadata.
