Onward Technologies chosen to participate in Hummingbird Enterprise™ 2005 beta testing

April 2005

Hummingbird Enterprise™ 2005 client allows close integration of different departments and access to business content, organization and workflow from within Microsoft Outlook® via a Business Solutions Framework that incorporates business logic, vertical-specific taxonomies and role-based presentation rules. The Business Solutions Framework is exposed in virtually all of Microsoft’s integrated content-authoring applications. It supports searching of the local desktop, corporate knowledge repositories, and internal and external resources, all from within Outlook and other Hummingbird clients. Hummingbird Enterprise 2005 facilitates management of the enterprise content lifecycle, including the application of business logic rules and policies, for increased user productivity and reduced costs. Seamless integration with Hummingbird LegalKEY provides outstanding records, conflicts, new business intake and critical dates management capability. The Automation e-mail management module increases worker productivity by easing the burden of repetitive content management by automatically managing e-mail based on business rules.

“Unlike the traditional integrations available in the marketplace today, Hummingbird Enterprise Client for Microsoft Outlook allows organizations to manage the entire lifecycle of their business content, presenting all the content and business processes in a dynamic view tailored to the organization’s business and the user’s role,” said Barry Litwin, President and Chief Executive Officer, Hummingbird Ltd. “User adoption is key to the success of every ECM deployment, and our new Client ensures virtually no additional training requirements for Microsoft Outlook users.”

Slava Ruderman, President of Onward Technologies, said, “We are excited and honored to test this important new release and to help Hummingbird deliver a great product. Gaining a thorough understanding of this product’s new features and functionality well in advance of its general release will enable us to provide our many Hummingbird Enterprise clients with even better support.”
