edocs Unveils XML Direct

Internet billing and customer management software and services vendor edocs this week unveiled XMLDirect.

XMLDirect is a formatting engine that enables the rapid deployment of applications that transform legacy bill, statement, trade confirmation and other transactional document data directly into XML without requiring programming code be written in languages such as C++, Java, or Perl.

XMLDirect enables companies to quickly and easily transform transactional document data into highly structured XML formats, while simultaneously generating XSL format stylesheets.

XMLDirect leverages edocs' Data Designer, a graphical environment designed to enable the rapid development and testing of rules for extracting data from complex, unstructured data file formats (including legacy billing formats).

XMLDirect builds on BillDirect, edocs' packaged software solution that transforms transactional content into personalized, interactive communications to enable enterprises to practice customer relationship management and marketing via the Internet. Companies using BillDirect include American Express and GE Capital.
