Users gain enhanced options for automated information delivery
RYE, NY - April 4, 2001 - Mobius Management Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq: MOBI), a leading provider of software for managing and presenting enterprise content, and Esker Ltd., a provider of software for intelligent information delivery, have entered a worldwide marketing alliance to help enterprises manage and deliver content more effectively by applying the multi-channel delivery capabilities of Esker's PulseTM to information managed by Mobius's ViewDirect® software. ViewDirect captures output from multiple applications and sources, creating an integrated repository of documents, reports and images for delivery over the Internet and corporate networks. Pulse automatically routes information from multiple data sources, in multiple formats, through multiple messaging infrastructures, to recipients throughout the enterprise.
The alliance allows customers of both companies to benefit from the integration of the two products, providing a comprehensive solution for capturing, indexing and storing massive numbers of documents, reports and images in multiple formats and delivering them to any number of users via multiple channels, including Web, e-mail, fax and wireless technologies.
"The e-business revolution created a need for companies to implement electronic methods of delivering information to the intended recipients," says Steve Broadway, vice president of marketing planning at Esker. "This partnership addresses an issue many enterprises are struggling with - how to easily deliver large volumes of information from corporate repositories through multiple channels. Pulse can enhance the value of information stored in ViewDirect by delivering it using the transport methods preferred by recipients, substantially reducing the cost of delivering essential documents such as reports, invoices, bills and statements, while providing a customer service advantage to the enterprise."
"ViewDirect addresses a critical issue for successful e-business initiatives," said Glenn Lombardi, vice president of business development at Mobius. "It captures, indexes and stores all documents or reports associated with enterprise resource planning (ERP) and other back-office systems and makes them available to front-office systems such as customer relationship management (CRM), portals, customer service and e-presentment and payment. ViewDirect seamlessly interfaces with Pulse to distribute information to users throughout the enterprise. We are delighted to partner with Esker to provide our mutual customers with a complete solution for managing and delivering information."
