RUTHERFORD, N.J., October 18, 2005 â AXS-One Inc. (AMEX: AXO), a leading provider of high-performance records compliance management software solutions, today announced the launch of AXS-Link for Desktopâ¢, an application that significantly expands the performance and usability of the companyâs flagship offering, AXS-One Compliance Platform 3.5. The new release makes it easy for every employee to manage all documents according to defined corporate records policies. It also helps ensure that the lifecycle of all relevant content is automatically managed according to organizational guidelines. By integrating compliance procedures right from the user workstation, AXS-Link for Desktopâwhich is available as a standalone component of the AXS-One Compliance Platform or as an add-on application to existing implemented componentsâgreatly reduces the level of risk associated with managing desktop files and documents, as well as the issues associated with litigation support and legal discovery orders.
With AXS-Link for Desktop, companies can ensure that compliance routines are seamlessly integrated into standard operating procedures. This goes a long way toward mitigating global concerns of electronic records management, record classification and legal discovery within a single expandable platform. As an additional benefit, the new release enhances efficiencies and cuts costs by reducing the ad-hoc approach thatâs typically in place at many enterprises. Rather than having separate archiving solutions and policies for different content types, AXS-Link for Desktop enables desktop documents to be managed and archived with other electronic documents in a single repository, making them readily available to support e-discovery requests through one comprehensive search facility.
"While e-mail dominates the headlines around compliance and legal discovery, we know that in the real world corporate records can originate from anyone and anywhere in any type," said Bill Lyons, CEO of AXS-One. "Even companies with the most sophisticated technologies and rigorously enforced policies canât monitor every document created by every user on every PC. AXS-Link for Desktop gives corporations one less thing to worry aboutâit reduces risk by making it much easier for end users to archive all relevant content."
Fully integrated with AXS-Oneâs enterprise technology solution, AXS-Link for Desktop is an easy-to-use, intuitive tool for end usersâthe solution requires no re-training for users already familiar with PC functionality and allows users to archive documents while connected or disconnected to the corporate network. At the same time, the technology leverages the market-leading power of AXS-One Compliance Platform 3.5. In fact, AXS-Link for Desktop is only the latest enhancement to the rich functionality provided by the award-winning solution and leverages the records management and case management capabilities provided by Retention Manager.
Other recent performance advances that keep AXS-One Compliance Platform 3.5 ahead of the market include innovations in the ingestion process to help companies archive legacy content, and the launch of Rapid-AXS search technology. In the wake of recent court judgments imposing huge sanctions against corporations for not turning over relevant documents in a timely manner, the new release provides welcome relief to companies concerned about their ability to comply with legal discovery requests.
