S4i Systems releases S4i Express V2.7


S4i Systems Inc. (S4i), a provider of iSeries/AS400 centric, electronic document management and DASD management solutions is pleased to announce their new release of S4i Express V2.7, an enhancement release to their suite of electronic document management products. Included in this release is support for AFPDS spool files, eliteFORM integration, enhancements to the end user web interface, support for common portal interfaces such as IBM Policy Director to manage security and authenticate users, management of Thai documents, PDF overlays, PDF book marking and much more.

AFPDS Support is Here!
This release represents the beginning of extensive support for AFPDS. AFPDS files can now be automatically distributed as an AFPDS print file, postscript print file or PDF using email fax, client, etc. Additionally, you can now segment your AFPDS files by page number.

eliteFORM Integration
Combine the document distribution and retrieval flexibility you get from S4i Express with the design and data mapping capabilities of eliteFORM for a robust electronic document management solution that spans imaging, electronic forms, distribution, archiving and retrieval. This integration allows users to simply designate the form-type within their report definition and S4i captures the newly mapped spool file and selects the corresponding form to create a professional document that communicates the exact information required with significant ease and unmatched flexibility.

End User Web Interface (WebView) Enhanced
S4i is enabling organizations to expand the reach and access to business documents by using common portal interfaces such as IBM Policy Director to manage security. Users can be assigned a network ID and be authenticated to provide access and assign rights to documents in lieu of an iSeries User ID. Additionally, users can now be taken directly to the list of documents they are authorized to view and multiple lists can be used to construct a single, more specific list of documents for viewing and distribution.

A new, web-based interface allows administrators to change the look and feel of a user's entry page to meet individual requirements or provide consistent use of the organization's own terminology. Glamour up your entry page with XSL and really WOW your end users!

Web application server scripts are now available and packaged with V2.7 to allow easy implementation of WebView. These scripts will automate configuring WebView to work with Apache's TomCat for the iSeries and PC, IBM WebSphere and IBM WebSphere Express.

S4i Express in Thailand
S4i has added support for Thai character fonts. Thai documents can be indexed, segmented, distributed in PostScript or PDF, archived and retrieved using S4i Express. Documents distributed in a Thai-supported PDF format provide users with easy access to needed information. "This functionality represents a wonderful opportunity for S4i in Thailand. Additionally, Thai iSeries customers now have a choice when it comes to selecting an affordable electronic document management solution to enhance their image in the market, increase productivity and reduce costs associated with their business processes." says Susanne States, Director, Marketing and Sales. S4i is represented by Prosoft Co., Ltd. (a Pro-Line Group of Companies) in Thailand.

More support for PDFs:

  • View PDF text in a 5250 screen
  • Create professional looking documents using PDF overlays, in addition to the many currently-supporter overlay formats available today
  • Add bookmarks to your PDF documents and increase your ease of navigating through large documents.

S4i's EDM solution allows an organization to manage documents electronically from the moment they are created until their ultimate destruction. Both hard copy and electronic documents can be captured and managed centrally, thereby distributing targeted information to individuals when and how they need it. Critical documents can be quickly obtained through common indexes such as an order or customer number. S4i's complete solution includes document imaging; report distribution via fax, email, print, FTP, client; archive to tape, optical, DVD, NAD; retrieval; online viewing and ad hoc distribution via a web interface as well as electronic forms. This highly scalable solution can be implemented whole or in part and is designed and priced to support an organization's evolving needs while preserving your initial investment.
