Lotus Notes integrated with UDMS' Step 2000; Notes data now available in best of breed workflow development environment.

CINCINNATI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--July 9, 1996--Universal Document Management Systems, Inc., a leading developer of client/server workflow-enabling and application development systems, today announced that it has integrated its Step2000(TM) workflow system with Lotus Notes'(TM) database to enable the exchange of Notes information within a Step2000 workflow. The first installation of the integrated system is at the Space Systems Division of Rockwell International.

"This phase of our planned integration is significant because it allows workflow users to review information stored and managed by Lotus Notes," said Jay Hilnbrand, president of Universal Document Management Systems. "Ultimately, we plan to extend the integration so Notes users will be able to create and participate in Step2000 work processes through their traditional Notes environment."

According to Delphi Consulting Group, Inc., a Boston consultancy specializing in the workflow market, Step2000 is a "best-of-breed" client/server workflow product. "The Step 2000 architecture provides the ability to work with a virtually unlimited variety of DBMS products or multiple DBMS products concurrently," said Tom Koulopoulos, Delphi's president. "This is especially helpful in integrating legacy DBMS repositories with newer client/server applications."

Step2000 is a client/server, object-oriented workflow and document management product that can work with virtually any DBMS or multiple DBMS products, concurrently. The system features automatic mapping of workflows to all supported platforms including Windows, AIX, OS/2, SunOS, or Macintosh. A complete user-interface creation facility and graphical workflow builder are integrated to assist in the rapid creation and deployment of workflow systems. The product includes a set of APIs that allow third-party GUI development environments to be used as the front end to the Step2000 workflow server.

Universal Document Management Systems, Inc. of Cincinnati, Ohio, develops integrated workflow and application development software that offers IT departments rapid design, prototyping and deployment of workflow and document management applications. Its products are used in companies such as PPG Industries, GE Plastics and Abbott Laboratories. Universal Document Management Systems is a wholly owned subsidiary of MedPlus (NASDAQ:MEDP), a leading supplier of information technology to the healthcare industry. -0-
