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.

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.

February 27, 2008

Clearview Software, the premier innovators of contemporary Microsoft® SharePoint® based Enterprise Content Management (ECM) solutions designed exclusively for Microsoft technology environments, is pleased to announce that Wall Street Network, a Microsoft Certified Partner, has joined the Clearview Partner Program. Under the terms of the partnership agreement, Wall Street Network will be offering the Clearview ECM suite to customers and prospects of their technology services.

As a SharePoint solutions provider, Wall Street Network had envisioned building out a rich ECM offering for their clients with SharePoint as the development platform. Once they investigated Clearview, they felt the strength of Clearview’s SharePoint-based ECM suite would fully satisfy the information and data management requirements of their clients.

Wall Street Network is a technology solution provider (computer systems integrator) with products and professional services that deliver cost effective, high-value solutions. They offer a full suite of professional services and consulting, encompassing all phases of a project lifecycle-strategy, assessment, planning, implementation and integration, and ongoing operational support. Their application integration, development skills, and competencies include enterprise solutions for Content Management, Contact Relationship Management, Enterprise Resource Planning, Geographic Information Systems, and Business Intelligence.

“Prior to partnering with Clearview, we conducted research on the small and medium business clients and prospects that have not yet implemented ECM, and found that only twenty percent of their storage space is shared information while eighty percent of their unstructured electronic storage is accessible to one and only one person. We think it should be the other way around, and plan to aggressively market the Clearview solution to help clients and prospects improve data accessibility and collaboration,” said Lester Pierre, Chairman and Founder of Wall Street Network.

“We think that Clearview has got ECM right, with an incredible ease of use, for at least the straightforward tasks. That’s a real plus. You are not looking at weeks of development and configuration as is required for other ECM solutions. With Clearview, it’s more like hours.”

“We are extremely pleased to have Wall Street Network represent Clearview’s ECM suite,” said Steve Leichtman, Senior Vice President of Sales for Clearview Software. “With Wall Street Network’s SharePoint expertise and solutions delivery methodology, we know customers will receive the highest levels of quality sales, services, and support for their Clearview implementations.”

Clearview Unveils New IRISS Desktop Gadget at 2007 AIIM Conference & Expo

April 17, 2007

Clearview Software, pioneers of the new era of Enterprise Content Management (ECM) designed on the Microsoft® technology platform, today demonstrated their latest product innovation that will inspire new trends in the ECM market. The unique Clearview IRISS Desktop Gadget, delivering a brand new style of user interface and interaction with ECM, was revealed to the public at the 2007 AIIM Conference & Expo in Boston, Massachusetts.

Inspired by the new Windows Vista operating system, the IRISS Desktop Gadget sets new levels of innovation designed to simplify and expand the usage of ECM technology throughout the business enterprise.

IRISS derives its name from the Clearview corporate logo, as well as the acronym for the functionality it delivers: Integrated Repositories – Integrated Search & Store.

Essentially, the Clearview IRISS floats on the desktop like other Vista “gadget” applications, waiting for the user to activate on-demand content or document services. With the simplicity and ease of drag-and-drop functionality, information workers can quickly retrieve document or content information directly from their line of business applications, eliminating the need for special and costly programming or integration services. Additionally, documents or other types of business content created on the desktop are just as easily dropped on the IRISS Desktop Gadget and then stored in the Clearview ECM repository.

“We were truly impressed by Clearview’s new IRISS desktop technology,” stated Bill W. Jones, President of Branson Bank. “We thought that the IRISS would have such a positive impact on how our users would interact with documents and content on the desktop that we recently selected the Clearview ECM solution over products offered by alternative vendors. The IRISS gadget provides a fast and easy way for end users to access archived documents. This will enable greater use of the image (content) solution platform across our company, providing greater efficiency and improved transaction quality.”

Providing access to all information across the enterprise with the Clearview repository federation and aggregation technology, the IRISS Desktop Gadget goes significantly beyond providing basic content services to the casual desktop user. For an advanced and content intense user experience, IRISS can be configured to run with the advanced Office 2007 inspired, Windows rich Clearview Client, or with the easy to implement, thin Clearview Web Client. Priced per individual desktop workstation similar to conventional PC-based software, the Clearview IRISS Desktop Gadget quickly establishes a new standard for ECM desktop user experiences.
