Nov 21, 2007 (08:11 AM EST)


TORONTO, Nov. 21 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - Xenos Group Inc. , today announced the availability of the Xenos Integrated Document Solution(TM) (IDS(TM)), an integrated end-to-end processing suite that enables the creation, formatting, control, transformation, storage and presentation of any enterprise information, without requiring changes to back office systems.

Xenos IDS provides customers and partners with the ability to manage multiple output formats for business-critical documents such as customized marketing collateral, contracts, policies, high-volume relationship statements and client correspondence. Xenos IDS ensures brand consistency and enables self-service channels for document presentment via a web portal, reducing print volumes and the associated costs, resulting in more environmentally friendly business practices.

Seamlessly uniting the core functionality of Xenos terminalONE(TM), Xenos d2e(TM), Xenos infoWEB(TM) and Document Sciences' xPression(R) 3 software suite, Xenos IDS enables businesses to quickly and efficiently create, edit and maintain well-designed, highly personalized, brand-consistent communications through every stage of processing. It also ensures swift retrieval and online access for customers and partners when required, an important factor for businesses in financial markets where compliance and legislation is vital.

"Under competitive pressures to improve the customer experience, many organizations are seeking real-time, interactive customer correspondence solutions providing the right tools at the right time that can be easily integrated together and with their existing back end systems," says Jeff Mills, Xenos IDS Global Practice Manager. "Xenos has taken a multi-vendor strategy. We have selected best-of-breed technologies that give power back to the business user. With the Xenos Integrated Document Solution they can now control the enterprise document lifecycle from data to delivery."

Xenos IDS provides full control, formatting and delivery of information produced by any back office system. It can integrate directly into any existing Enterprise Content Management (ECM) system, or as a 'plug-in' for popular industry document creation programmes, such as Microsoft Word, Adobe InDesign or Adobe Dreamweaver.

Fully scalable, Xenos IDS operates on almost any platform depending on requirements, and is based upon the use of common, open, industry standards such as XML and Java. It can speedily process documents in batch or on an ad-hoc basis and is ideally positioned to work within a Service Orientated Architecture (SOA) meaning that it is cost effectively managed, either locally or remotely, within a common application framework.

The stages of Xenos IDS document processing are enabled by Xenos terminalONE structured data handling software, Xenos d2e document transformation and repurposing software, Xenos infoWEB electronic document and image storage, multi-channel report delivery and online presentment software, and Document Sciences xPression 3 content publishing suite. Xenos terminalONE automates the whole process by providing comprehensive connectivity, data translation, process flow and control functionality integrated with existing enterprise systems. By interacting with Document Sciences' xPression 3, Xenos terminalONE can access any data format from any source, then process, index and transform it with Xenos d2e to any required archive, viewing or print format. Xenos infoWEB secures and outputs the documents for recipients to access and review via an Internet-based web portal and if necessary, to print.
