Rancho Santa Margarita, Calif.-based forms automation vendor inFORM Decisions Inc. unveiled a new iSeries file serving module for a Windows-based document management system. The software will be marketed by Questys Solutions, a Mission Viejo, Calif.-based document imaging, storage, and retrieval systems company.
inFORM's iSeries module is integrated into Questys Solutions software with a set of standard API's and is accessed through Questys commands. Users who are logged on to any network connected PC can access the documents stored on the iSeries machine. iSeries users can also access these documents. inFORM's module adds single command report routing capabilities for printers connected to heterogeneous systems, report moving capabilities between LPARs, Internet distribution, facilitates print sharing capabilities, and automatically routes reports to a remote system based in control table routing instructions. Report formats supported include IPDS, AFP, PCL, and character-based.
According to inFORM, the advantages of using the iSeries to archive documents include its vast disk capacity that frees up disk space on multiple, smaller, and decentralized Windows based systems, its granular security, and its ability to handle multiple simultaneous workloads.
