ViewStar First to Ship Production-Class Workflow for the Internet.

ALAMEDA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 27, 1996--ViewStar Corp. today announced the immediate availability of its suite of workflow products for extending its business process automation system to the Internet and corporate intranets.

The shipment of ViewStar's Process@Work and InfoStore@Work systems marks the industry's first robust, production-class workflow offering for managing collaborative business processes over the World Wide Web.

"Building on its experience in workflow, imaging and collaborative computing, ViewStar has established itself as the only company shipping products designed for industrial-strength workflow on the Internet," said Scott McCready, director of Image Systems at International Data Corp. in Framingham, Mass.

Customers such as Texas Commerce Bank and North Carolina State University have successfully completed pilot applications using ViewStar's Internet product suite, which now provides companies with a cost-effective way to incorporate employees, partners and customers in collaborative business processes over the Internet.

Texas Commerce Bank is running a consumer loan application on its intranet that enables bank employees to securely initiate loan requests online from any PC with access to the Web. Once the loan request is completed, the progress of the loan through the various stages of approval can also be tracked through a Web browser on the company's intranet.

"We're working closely with Texas Commerce Bank to provide their employees with a system that allows them to access customer information by the most accurate, secure and rapid means possible," said Shirish Hardikar, vice president of marketing for ViewStar.

"This intranet application is a key component of the bank's long term strategy to deploy systems that translate directly into customer service value."

North Carolina State University is deploying Process@Work to automate its undergraduate application process. "The ViewStar system is a critical part of our effort to streamline the application review process," said Brian Kemerait, director of network and communications services at North Carolina State University.

"Given that early notification of acceptance is a key factor in the student decision-making process, North Carolina State University will be able to more effectively compete for the most talented students."

Process@Work allows users to participate in workflow applications via a standard Web browser. For customers, Process@Work gives them the ability to initiate tasks such as submitting information, making requests and checking the status of their inquiries at any time of day.

InfoStore@Work provides Web-based access to ViewStar libraries for customers seeking to leverage the economical, ubiquitous nature of the Web. For example, a bank using InfoStore@Work could effectively manage its signature verification process with an application that consolidates the information and presents it all in a single Web-based form that makes it easy for users to process.
