The latest release of XyEnterprise's ContentaView seeks to ensure that information is provided to the right people, at the right time and that the use of that information is carefully tracked. With the web-based distribution capabilities, the need for a lot of hardware may be only a distant memory.ContentaView 3.6 is XyEnterprise's software solution suite for the delivery of interactive, textual and multimedia content through either CD-ROM or the Web.
The biggest news in this new version is a new web-based update server. This new server provides the capability to deliver content from the server to the desktop easily and -- if required -- automatically via pre-determined intervals.
Since it's web-based, all that's required is an Internet connection -- no new hardware or software necessary.
Another new feature is a tracking mechanism. This tracking feature maintains an audit trail of every user connection to the server and every update that is downloaded.
Each client record can show the most up to date information on end users, publications, version and historical information. This is functionality that is definitely necessary with the compliance and records management issues every organization faces today.
Additional New Features
Several other new capabilities announced with this release include:
* Generic Export Tool: Users can export the XML content into a number of different file formats: RTF, Excel, Word, CSV and plain text.
