"..we readily expect Workspace Publishing to become the application-of-choice for organizations requiring structured collaboration.." - Greg Schramm, Product Manager, Kavi Corporation
Portland, Ore. (PRWEB) October 21, 2010
Kavi Corporation, the leading collaboration software provider for standards organizations, announced today the availability of its new standards creation solution, Kavi Workspace Publishing. This add-on component for Kavi’s flagship collaboration software, Kavi Workspace, is the first solution to provide standards-setting organizations with a full set of tools to manage the standards development process from start to finish.
With the advanced features and functionality of Workspace Publishing, organizations that want to create a new standard are now able to get their projects up and running quickly and oversee those projects from one central location. There’s no need to install anything—for qualified users of Kavi Workspace, Publishing is simply turned on with the flip of a switch. Once enabled, users can easily choose a project type, use alerts and document sharing to get the work done, autofill forms with the data they already have, and publish new standards internally or to the public.
“Kavi Workspace has been helping standards developing organizations and associations collaborate for 14 years. Earlier this year we released ProjectView, which provided holistic insight for stakeholders into the status of their organization’s initiatives and development efforts. Workspace Publishing brings the collaboration and insight full circle by providing an easy mechanism to share project status and published documents outside the organization to the whole world," said Greg Schramm, Product Manager at Kavi Corporation. "Not only have we made sharing information easy, but we've also made the process of managing ANSI-accredited standards simpler, by integrating the ANSI PINS, BSR-8 and BSR-9 forms directly into ProjectView. Our new audit record helps not only standards developers with periodic audits, but any organization that needs project accountability and historic data retention. Workspace Publishing solves so many problems, we readily expect it to become the application-of-choice for organizations requiring structured collaboration."
