SpringCM Delivers Newest Version of Its On-Demand Document Management and Workflow Solution
Advanced View and Markup, Electronic Signature and Enhanced Search Extend Industry's Leading Document Management SaaS Platform in SpringCM 4.1
SAN MATEO, Calif., Jan. 9 - SpringCM, the leader in on-demand document management and workflow, today announced the availability of SpringCM 4.1, the newest version of the company's award-winning document management and workflow software as a service. This new version offers significant enhancement to features that enhance business productivity, including major updates in search, advanced view and markup, preview mode and electronic signatures.
Highlights of SpringCM 4.1 include:
Electronic Signature Integration -- Rather than physically mailing or faxing documents like contracts that require signatures, SpringCM's Electronic Signature feature enables documents to be signed electronically, even by people who are not SpringCM licensees. Documents may be sent for electronic signature with a single click in SpringCM -- the recipient receives an e-mail containing a link to the document and the steps required to complete the electronic signature. If a written signature is required, the recipient can fax a paper copy to a toll-free number. Regardless of signature method, the signed document is automatically stored as the latest version back in the SpringCM repository.
Advanced View and Mark-up -- SpringCM now supports CAD, MS Project, Microstation and 85 other proprietary drawing, document and imaging formats. Thanks to Advanced View and Mark-up, annotating proprietary document formats doesn't have to mean hand-editing printed copies and writing lengthy e-mails with confusing revision steps. Advanced View and Markup expedites the review and comment cycles by extending the annotation capabilities of SpringCM beyond hand-editing printed copies or the "sticky notes" annotation, already available within the system. Areas of concern can be circled, or marked with a variety of "stamps" (like directional arrows and names) and highlight points that need further development. Annotations are always viewable but are not saved in the actual document, ensuring an unaltered version is always available. Users who do not have the specific application can now contribute their comments on project plans, complex Visio diagrams, CAD files and many other formats.
Enhanced Preview Mode -- Based on customer feedback and cutting-edge Web 2.0 design, SpringCM's Document Preview features have been upgraded to better serve collaboration and indexing needs. Lock Zoom enables the user to focus on a fixed area of a document as pages are scrolled. To allow for more horizontal workspace, the left and right panes are now collapsible. The Information Panel buttons are wired with hot keys to further expedite indexing.
Expanded Advanced Search -- New collapsible and expandable menu options display only the Advanced Search options that are relevant to specific business needs. SpringCM retains the Advanced Search display options after every modification. Basic, Personal and Account views are provided to introduce a new level of configuration to the Search menu. An intuitive selection process is used to include and exclude specific attribute groups in search results.
Dan Carmel, CEO of SpringCM, stated, "The new features of SpringCM Version 4.1 will help organizations streamline critical signature processes in areas like contract and proposal management and document collaboration for dozens of file formats such as MS Project, Visio and CAD files. Our customers have come to expect rapid innovation and SpringCM 4.1 delivers customer-driven enhancements in search and document viewing that demonstrate the benefits of using Software as a Service. Version 4.1 continues our history of delivering comprehensive content management solutions at a fraction of the cost of on- premises systems."
