EMC Partner Launches New Mobile Apps for EMC ApplicationXtender

EMC World 2011 may have come to an end yesterday, but there was so much news going on that I did not have time write about all of it before the show ended.  One of the cool announcements came from an EMC partner, Business Imaging Systems (BIS), who announced three new mobile apps that connect into EMC ApplicationXtender. BIS is calling it MAX and it is described as “content management unplugged”. The new offerings will connect users from Apple iPhone and Android devices, tablets, and network KIOSK devices, with the content management environment of ApplicationXtender. You can read more about MAX here.

At EMC World, I had the opportunity to get a quick demo of the various products they are launching.

Capture News: Pitney Bowes Management Services Teams Up with EMC to Deliver Imaging Solutions

Last week, Pitney Bowes announced that they will be using the EMC Captiva intelligent enterprise capture products as its document and data capture technology for both hosted and on-premise offerings. You can read the entire press release here.

What this partnership further reinforces is the ongoing  demand for companies wanting to digitize their paper. Paper is still a necessary evil for many businesses, and it is something companies are still trying to get control of.

This partnership also now gives companies different options of getting there – deploy capture internally, take advantage of the EMC OnDemand offering (see the EMC announcement), or look to partners like Pitney Bowes Management Services to provide it as a service.  Different options backed up with great underlying technology. 

Very exciting.

Bringing Capture to the Front Office: Momentum Session at EMC World 2011

I’m making my fifth trip back to EMC World (May 9th – 12th) this year, and I’ve been given an opportunity to speak on one of my favorite document capture topics, which is about bringing capture to the front office. Why do I enjoy this topic? Well I like it because it gives me the chance to talk about the value of moving capture beyond simply using it in a centralized mailroom, and highlight the significant benefits that can be achieved. Companies are doing this today, and when I see how it has transformed their operations it makes complete sense.
