Plexus Ships ImageFIRST Office 3.0

Plexus, a division of Sunnyvale, CA-based BancTec, is now shipping ImageFIRST Office (IFO) 3.0, a workflow-enabled document repository.

An open, scalable solution, IFO 3.0 offers rapid application deployment, immediate usability, and customizing features.

"IFO's rapid deployment capabilities provide our customers with an out-of-the-box solution that greatly reduces their mean time to payback and at the same time provides the robust production capabilities for which Plexus' products are renowned," said Rich Hemmerling, VP of Engineering at Plexus.

Some of the features of IFO 3.0 are an intuitive GUI, an optional optical subsystem for document storage and retrieval, a cabinet/folder/document repository, multi-vendor scanner support, fax in/out, email, and industrial-strength RDBMS support.

It can be adapted to accommodate vertical industry and local language requirements, and users may add additional features using the Visual Basic client application as a model.

IFO 3.0's client/server architecture needs Windows NT or UNIX servers, and Windows 95 or NT clients.
