Unisys InfoImage joins the SharePoint team

December 5, 2008: Unisys is making it easier for users of its InfoImage document imaging and workflow solutions to rollout SharePoint in their organisations

It has launched the InfoImage Connector for Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007. InfoImage is used by financial services firms, government agencies, and other organizations to process high volumes of loans, claims and tax forms in digital form.

“Many of the world’s largest institutions already rely on the Unisys InfoImage platform to process and manage millions of transactional documents every day,” said Jeff Parker, president of independent analyst firm Directions on Microsoft. “The new Unisys InfoImage SharePoint connector makes it easier for information workers in these institutions to access and use content captured in an InfoImage repository using the familiar Microsoft Office user interface.”

According to Unisys Asia Pacific, there are a number of InfoImage users in Asia.

"Unisys also works closely with EMC to provide enterprise content management solutions for customers across Asia Pacific," said a spokesperson.

“Through its additional document management and workflow software, Unisys InfoImage complements and enhances the core capabilities of Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007,” said Kathleen Winder, Microsoft Director of SharePoint and Fast Partner Marketing. “Integrated solutions such as this allow our customers to increase productivity and collaboration, and streamline business activities that, altogether, provide competitive advantages.”

The InfoImage Connector for Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 allows enterprise users to effectively repurpose content and manage records across both solution suites, regardless of where the content was created. The Connector can be scaled horizontally or vertically to manage volume and optimize performance.

“Organisations are dealing with critical issues around document proliferation, management, storage, and operations efficiency. By combining the strengths of Unisys and Microsoft, we are able to effectively address our clients’ two largest sets of documents and processes – transaction content and collaborative content,” said Paul Barber, director, ECM Program, Unisys.

“Enterprise Content Management is software that organizations are using to improve their document and process operations and realize the substantial benefits of cost reduction, customer service improvements, and compliance enhancement. Organisations should consider this powerful, yet low cost and high-value connection facility to extend the content reach and improve productivity.”
