The move is an effort by the Redmond, Washington-based software giant to boost the capabilities of its Exchange messaging software to compete with Lotus Development's Notes and Domino groupware.
Eastman today rolled out a new add-on package, the Eastman Software Work Management for Microsoft Exchange, to gives Microsoft Exchange users workgroup capabilities already found in Notes.
The product is actually a collection of applications, including a WorkFolder, Document Manager, and Imaging for Windows Professional Edition 2.0.
Now shipping, WorkFolder provides a "container" for gathering, organizing, and sharing business information and managing the tasks needed to tackle business projects.
Due out in April, the Document Manager application allows users to create, organize, store, and access documents.
Imaging Professional transforms paper documents and faxes them into electronic files that can be viewed, searched, and distributed through Windows, Exchange, and the Internet.
