XEROX IMAGING SYSTEMS SIGNS OEM AGREEMENT WITH RESUMIX; OCR TECHNOLOGY INTEGRATED INTO HUMAN SKILLS MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS

 PEABODY, Mass., Dec. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Xerox Imaging Systems (XIS) today announced a strategic alliance with Resumix of Santa Clara, Calif. Under the terms of the agreement, Resumix will integrate XIS' ScanWorX and TextBridge optical character recognition (OCR) software into Resumix 3.0, the new release of its Human Skills Management systems. The new OCR software will enable Resumix users to convert scanned resumes into ASCII text format for the system's expert extraction, editing, refaxing, printing and electronic filing.
 Based on a client/server architecture, ScanWorX OCR software for UNIX operates on the Hewlett-Packard, IBM, Intergraph and Sun platforms. TextBridge is a robust Windows OCR application with features specially designed to accurately convert degraded documents to electronic text.
 By embedding XIS' highly accurate OCR software into its Human Skills Management systems, Resumix has enhanced the system's power to identify key candidate skills and qualifications for available jobs. Resumix' Human Skills Management systems are used in more than 120 organizations to identify qualified job applicants, monitor and cultivate employee skills and manage the employee database.
 "Accuracy is critical to the efficient management of employee data," said Stephen J. Ciesinski, president and CEO of Resumix. "ScanWorX and TextBridge provide the industry's most accurate OCR technology, making Resumix an even more effective tool for long-term human resource and strategic business initiative planning."
 XIS' TextBridge and ScanWorX OCR software products use artificial intelligence to "learn" as processing takes place, which enables the software to recognize virtually any typeface on a wide range of documents -- including those which have been photocopied, faxed or have degraded over time. The ScanWorX and TextBridge application programming interfaces (APIs) are developer's toolkits which allow application programmers to integrate XIS' OCR technology into their products and applications. The APIs consist of XIS' OCR software, documentation and demonstration programs.
