ActiveDocs Limited today released the latest version of its ActiveDocs Opus document automation and compliance solution which now has a completely refreshed code base to account for the evolution of how large organizations plan to deploy and use business-critical applications.

Chris Rust, ActiveDocs Principal Product Architect said: “With the Raptor release, we decided to thoroughly refresh the component set of the product to reflect the new ways of how we see software being deployed and used today in major enterprise clients. We are starting to see more and more deployments by large companies utilizing private cloud infrastructure, Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, and, of course, our own ActiveDocs ATLAS™ SaaS offering. We made significant changes to the product in order to optimize it for large web-scale deployment scenarios.”

In addition to this re-write, 136 brand new features have been added with focus on the areas of compliance, delivery control, and ease of cloud deployment and interoperability.

“Development of every new feature set for ActiveDocs is driven by thorough research and analysis of document and communications requirements in large organizations world-wide,” noted Glenn Cameron, ActiveDocs Vice President for Product Development. “We have identified the need for better support of compliance enforcement and auditing use cases, especially in conjunction with management of delivery of produced documents and communications.”

With the growing popularity of the Microsoft Office 365 suite of applications, the Raptor release now features in-depth integration capabilities for Office 365 throughout the layers of the product – document management, template management, data sources etc. The integration includes an innovative approach to automation of email communications with the ActiveDocs Opus Outlook Module.

Mr Cameron added: “Our research also identified that knowledge workers in large organizations spend a significant portion of their working days creating and responding to emails using Microsoft Outlook. Many of those emails were graded as routine and easy to automate with the ActiveDocs Opus. For that reason we decided to develop a new module for Microsoft Outlook, which can dramatically reduce the time needed for routine email communication, and provides centralized control of content and branding.”
