Built atop the company's Domino Server, the new Domino.Doc application works with documents created using popular personal productivity suites such as Lotus SmartSuite, Microsoft Office, and Corel Wordperfect. The documents stored on the Document.Doc Web server can be accessed through a personal productivity application, a Web browser, or Lotus Notes client.
Available now and priced at $4,700 for one server, Domino.Doc allows departments to create, securely capture, file, retrieve, and distribute documents over the Internet. Boosted searching capabilities, extended desktop application support, and additional support for Microsoft Internet Explorer 4.0 and Netscape Navigator 4.0 mark the latest enhancements in this new version of Domino.Doc, according to the company.
Domino.Doc can be entered from Lotus Notes clients 4.5 and higher on Windows 95 and NT, as well as from Netscape Navigator and Microsoft IE.
Scott Cooper, general manager of document management and imaging products at Lotus, said, "There is a genre of applications that are inherently collaborative--document management, workflow, and knowledge management--each of which increases its value based upon the movement of information between people and organizations."
"Lotus is finding that its installed base intuitively understands document management. With Domino.Doc and Domino installed across the enterprise, organizations have the foundation of a complete document and work management strategy," he noted.
Lotus is a subsidiary of IBM.
