Unisys Teams with Microsoft to Develop Enterprise Content Management Solutions

Unisys Corporation (NYSE:UIS) today announced the Unisys InfoImage® Connector for Microsoft® Office SharePoint® Server 2007. Unisys InfoImage Connector is a new solution developed by Unisys in collaboration with Microsoft that enables Unisys customers to seamlessly connect Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 and Unisys InfoImage document imaging and workflow solutions.

Unisys 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. Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 is a leading collaboration and portal software suite. Unisys believes that combining these technologies will enable users of both solutions to significantly enhance productivity and improve their ability to comply with disclosure requirements.

“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.”

Today on a global basis, disclosure laws governing records management and archiving are significantly increasing the amount of data that organizations are responsible for storing and managing, especially as insider and outsider security threats and regulations increase.

With this new solution, Unisys and Microsoft are enabling enterprises to easily manage the increase in documentation and processes, freeing IT departments to focus on other critical functions. Companies will be able to deploy business applications that leverage the familiar and easy-to-use Office SharePoint interface and the advanced imaging and workflow features of InfoImage.

“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.

“Organizations 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. Organizations should consider this powerful, yet low cost and high-value connection facility to extend the content reach and improve productivity.”
