Want paperless office? Go for Xerox Docushare

July 26, 2007 11:31 IST

Xerox India Limited plans to introduce in Kolkata its content management software -- Docushare -- by October this year, in an attempt to offer 'paperless offices' for its customers.

DocuShare makes it easy for corporates to share ad hoc information more efficiently and allows organisations to do away with the time, labour, and cost of maintaining paper files.

Xerox DocuShare also supports content management processes across the enterprise, enabling turnkey solutions that could be implemented within a few hours.

"We would tap education and healthcare clients for this solution as these institutes handle maximum paperwork. This software is license driven and would cost close to Rs 400,000 for 20 licenses," said Ravi Venkatraman, director, Xerox Global Services.

DocuShare would also offer integrated scanning and imaging solutions as well as secure transmission and image encryption for security-conscious environments such as education and healthcare.

DocuShare would also support rapid dissemination of information on company intranets or externally facing sites through a range of web-centric editing, management, and publishing tools, protected by security protocols.

In India, XGS launched operations in 2005 and has more than 70 customers as of now.

Xerox has also launched its global services division in Kolkata and is looking at companies with over 15,000 employees to pitch for it.

"Xerox global services aims to provide document management services to corporates. This is expected to reduce cost of operations in any office by close to 30 per cent," Venkatraman claimed.

XGS also plans to scale up its operations in Kolkata by building a dedicated team of 3 XGS specialists and plans to acquire six more accounts in Kolkata by end of this year.

The company plans to tap banking, insurance, financial services, and healthcare for its client base in Kolkata.

Globally, Xerox is a $17.6 billion company of which its services division contributes 1/3rd of its revenues.
