Clearview ECM 5.0 is here!

November 4, 2008

Clearview Software—the leading provider of Enterprise Content Management (ECM) solutions that complement and extend Microsoft technologies including SharePoint—proudly announces the release of Clearview ECM 5.0, bringing to market their new Business Process Management module as well as intelligent indexing and index validation, external data access, compatibility with Kofax 8.0, and more.

The fully-integrated Business Process Management module (workflow) reduces implementation costs while automating content-centric processes to improve user productivity, information sharing, and collaboration of documents in Clearview and SharePoint. Information workers can manage and monitor workflow activity from the intuitive Clearview Client, which was inspired by the Fluent User Interface in Microsoft Office 2007.

“Organizations will be able to leverage the tremendous efficiencies provided by a solution built on a content-centric business process management product,” says Clearview Channel Services Manager Daniel Mayernik. “The Clearview 5.0 Ultimate Edition delivers the unique advantage of content-centric business process management—the content that drives business processes. Clearview provides built-in support for content events, enabling new content added to any of the Clearview Virtual ECM Domain repositories to trigger a new workflow or complete a current workflow, based on an organization’s unique business rules and policies.”

With Clearview EMC 5.0, no data is left behind. Upgraded to 62-bit, Clearview continues to extend enterprise-class content management capabilities to SharePoint and can also connect to external data sources such as an ODBC database or flat file for quick look-ups of data throughout the enterprise. Document Management Customers will also find that the new compatibility with Kofax 8.0 enables rapid document class synchronization.


Clearview Announces Release of Clearview™ 4.1 ECM Suite

June 24, 2008

Clearview Software, the premier innovators of contemporary Microsoft® SharePoint® based Enterprise Content Management (ECM) solutions designed exclusively for Microsoft technology environments, today announced the release of ClearviewTM 4.1, an update to the popular next-generation Clearview ECM software suite.

Available today to customers and partners around the world, Clearview 4.1 represents significant enhancements and new features designed for the emerging requirements of business organizations and the general ECM market. Clearview 4.1 incorporates enhancements such as expanded support for highly complex SharePoint implementation configurations, a new AJAX/ASP.NET based web browser client, and a new Microsoft Office Suite plug-in – all delivering deeper integration of Clearview Content Services with Office 2003 and Office 2007 user experiences.

“We chose Clearview based upon its cutting-edge approach to ECM along with how seamlessly it fits into our Microsoft-technology infrastructure,” said David Mansfield, Executive Vice President and CFO of The Provident Bank, an independent community bank headquartered in Amesbury, Massachusetts.

“Our information workers love the simplicity of the Clearview user interfaces. Even our external auditors have commented that it’s the best system that they have ever used.”

Clearview’s ECM innovation emphasis continues to be centered on the value-add extension Clearview brings to the SharePoint-based ECM market. According to Kyle McNabb, Principal Analyst and Research Director at Forrester Research in the November 2007 The Forrester WaveTM: Enterprise Content Management Suites, Q4 2007, “SharePoint is an especially good fit for (ECM) buyers who: 1) Choose Microsoft to address their collaboration needs; 2) Will look elsewhere for transactional content-centric support; and 3) Want to leverage their investments in Microsoft.”

Clearview has introduced a fresh approach to ECM that uniquely leverages the native ECM capabilities of SharePoint as core components of the Clearview suite architecture. By extending SharePoint with transactional document imaging, report management (COLD), and business process management, Clearview delivers enterprise-class ECM functionality that rivals legacy ECM products. Furthermore, the Office 2007 user experience provided throughout the Clearview client interface provides information workers with a familiar Microsoft experience designed to promote ease-of-use and rapid adoption of ECM on every worker desktop.
