Bottomline Technologies has launched Transform 5.0, an updated document process automation solution, which aims to help businesses to better manage and automate all of their inbound and outbound document creation processes via one central system – whether that is bill processing in the treasury, through to internal accounting. The new release is also available on the latest Microsoft platforms, building on the cooperation between the two firms.
Transform 5.0 includes enhanced design features, claims Bottomline, which it says will enable users to create rich document designs quickly and easily, together with simplified printing configurations, making it easier to create documents that work on multiple printers. The software has also been specifically developed to provide faster print performance for complex documents and ease hardware management by separating the responsibility for document design from printer management, all of which could potentially reduce the total cost of ownership.
The product is compatible with the Microsoft Windows 8 operating system (OS) and Windows Server 2012 and includes an enhancement to the XPS import wizard, making it easier to upload document templates directly into Transform to create new document designs. The wizard also enables content and information from other systems to be dynamically incorporated into Transform during the document creation process, saving time and reducing manual administration.
Commenting on the launch Ian Bamber, global product manager at Bottomline Technologies, said: “Transform 5.0 is the next step in the evolution of document process automation, enabling businesses to further streamline the flow and distribution of documents within the organisation. We have elevated the user experience of Transform 5.0 by accelerating and simplifying the manner in which documents can be created, shared and accessed."
According to one of reseller partners, Colin Brimson, a director at D-Flo Ltd in the UK: “Transform 5.0 offers a number of benefits to users, from Windows 8 compatibility and SharePoint integration, through to faster document creation and better print performance. The Transform product suite adds value to customers that want to optimise business processes, reduce manual intervention in document processing and eliminate multiple data entry, as well as being able to deliver information to whoever needs it in whatever format they require.”
