PETERBOROUGH, England, April 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Halcyon Software , the global leader in systems management software, has
announced the immediate availability of Document Management System v4 for the
IBM i platform. This comprehensive document management solution will
significantly reduce costs by automating document workflow and delivering
reliable and rapid archiving, retrieval, packaging and distribution of
documents held in spooled files on the IBM i system. 

This latest release adds several significant new functions including the
ability to easily port and convert documents from traditional document
management systems including Spyview, Open Text, Magellan and Robot/Help
Systems. It also has a reliable methodology for migration, including the
creation and copying of configurations to multiple IBM i platforms.

An intuitive, web-based front end simplifies and speeds up the handling of
archived, indexed spooled files and enables users to apply notes and export
data without requiring specialist IBM i skills, improving visibility of key
information to personnel. Data can also be remotely accessed from any
location using laptops, smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices using
the Apple iOS, Android or Windows operating systems.

According to Carole Chandler, Sales and Marketing Director at Halcyon
Software: "This new release for Document Management System will streamline
document workflow and increase efficiency across the enterprise. It provides
organisations with a cost effective way to convert to Halcyon whilst
minimising manpower resources and costs. In addition, integration with both
Apple and Android devices enhances our product proposition, ensuring that our
solutions remain at the forefront of technology."

Document Management System v4 also allows the creation of multiple form
overlays and templates on spooled files. This enables organisations with
different operating divisions, brands or companies to centralise the
generation of a wide range of documents including purchase orders, invoices,
despatch notes and insurance schedules. The software automatically formats and
displays the correct company name and address details in each case.

Data can be exported across different types of archived spooled files as soft
copies and emailed in a variety of formats including PDF, HTML and TXT format.
In addition, Document Management System has a segmenting and bundling
function that enables subsets of large reports to be created and distributed
to pre-defined recipient lists.

Document Management System v4 is available immediately and product pricing is
tiered and based on IBM processor groups. Furthermore, Halcyon operates a
fair pricing policy so that if an IBM customer increases the Commercial
Processing Workload (CPW) of their hardware in the future, they will be
protected against additional licence and maintenance fees. Halcyon software is
not priced on a CPW basis.
