Computhink Introduces A New Concept With The Innovative Product, The Paperless Office; New Product Is Considered An Office Information Manager.

CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 7, 1997--You've heard of PIMs, but Computhink, developer of advanced business management tools, introduces the first Office Information Manager (OIM) with The Paperless Office.

The OIM is a document management/imaging solution software with a complete suite of business productivity tools. The product is the first 32-bit software package designed for the small office/home office to increase productivity, save time and money by automating document storage, manipulation and retrieval.

Compatible with both Windows 95 and Windows NT, the technology enables users to easily file, store, retrieve, annotate and distribute more than 100,000 electronically created or paper-based documents of unlimited size and file type.

"Paper management has emerged as the new wave in PC enhancements for consumers in the small office/home office environment on up to corporate networks," said Leonard A. Cibelli, Vice President of Sales and Marketing. "To take control of their office, users require a feature-rich package that is still easy to run. The Paperless Office gives them that at an affordable price."

Utilizing a SQL relational database for image storage, users can acquire documents of any nature via scanner, e-mail, fax or PC file. Word processing files, database files, photos, artwork and spreadsheets are all then stored either on a PC hard drive, tape backup, rewritable CD, RAID or removable media for document management on the road. Document recognition is ensured by a powerful OCR engine. Moreover, The Paperless Office supports Visioneer Paperport Scanners and other leading OCR applications.

With the software's intuitive filing system and built-in autosearch capabilities, users can index, archive, retrieve, export, backup and import/export documents. Documents are kept confidential through the software's password option.

The Paperless Office provides functions for extensive document editing, annotating and page manipulation. Voice, sound and AVI annotations can be added to any document through embedded OLEs. Faxes and e-mail can be sent over the network through Windows 95 Exchange. An auto installation feature allows for simple installation with virtually no learning curve. On-line help and documentation are available to further support users.

System requirements include a PC or laptop with 486 or higher processor, 16 MB of RAM, hard disk with 30 MB free for software installation, Windows 95 or Windows NT, SVGA or better monitor and any TWAIN or ISIS compliant sheetfed or flatbed scanners for scanning. The software also supports faxing and printing.

The Paperless Office is part of an extensive line of high-performance software products by Computhink, including system identification software, image and document management software and other turnkey solutions. It will be available at major computer retailers nationwide for a target street price of $199.95.
