OPTIX Document Management System adds Foldering Interface.
OPTIX foldering enables users to 'drag and drop' files stored in OPTIX, to folders located on their desktops. Conversely, desktop files can be dragged into server folders for one-step archiving. The interface supports any type of electronic file including: scanned documents, email messages, images, and spreadsheets. Because the document icons act as pointers to documents stored on a server, users gain near instantaneous access to documents without overloading their local hard drive.
According to Jim Small, Director of Systems Development for Blueridge, "People understand the metaphor of desktop folders and files, and both Macintosh and Windows users are accustomed to the concept of dragging and dropping files into folders. As a result, OPTIX foldering reduces the need for user training, while increasing ease-of-use."
"No other document management system offers cross-platform foldering for both Windows and Macintosh workstations," said Howie Swaim, Blueridge's Director of Marketing. "OPTIX foldering builds on our reputation for providing document management systems that are powerful, flexible, and easy to use. It proves that industrial-strength business application software can be be 'powerful' and 'user-friendly' at the same time."
The foldering interface will ship with OPTIX systems in the 3rd Quarter of 1997.
