Zero-Install Desktop Integration: Crossing the Chasm from the Office to ECM

Press release from: WeWebU Software AG

Herzogenaurach, 04/04/2011 – WeWebU Software AG, a manufacturer of standard software for Enterprise Information Management, announces the release of its new product WeWebU Zero-Install Desktop Integration. It integrates Enterprise Content Management (ECM) systems into a wide range of desktop applications like Microsoft and OpenOffice, Adobe Acrobat and Notepad++ and thus facilitates working with them intuitively and with virtually no training effort.

The former WeWebU Zero-Install Office Integration has made it easy to work with documents from the ECM system in Microsoft (MS) Office. Now, its user-friendly features are available for many more desktop applications and allow users to access documents stored in the ECM system as easily as never before. They find, open, edit and store documents of a wide range of formats in a multitude of applications without even realizing they were working in the ECM system. WeWebU Zero-Install Desktop Integration supports different IBM ECM repositories as well as CMIS compliant ones like Alfresco. It is seamlessly integrated into WeWebU OpenWorkdesk and can be integrated into other ECM front-ends as well. That makes WeWebU Zero-Install Desktop Integration the most advanced and most versatile desktop integration in the market.

“It’s so much more than an Office integration now. WeWebU Zero-Install Desktop Integration crosses the chasm from the office to ECM and makes working with ECM systems as easy as pie form literally all desktop applications”, states Dr. Rainer Pausch, Head of Products & Marketing at WeWebU Software AG.

WeWebU Zero-Install Desktop Integration exposes parts of the ECM system as so called Direct Access Folders (DAF) which are shown as a network drive. This means that in Windows Explorer users can browse the folder structure and directly drag and drop documents from the ECM system to e.g. other folders in Windows Explorer, the Desktop or the attachment field of e-mails. Vice versa, they can store documents in the ECM system by just dragging and dropping them to the DAF. Opening documents is as easy as that: Users just click on the document in the DAF in Windows Explorer and it is opened in the respective desktop application or they navigate in the Open dialog of literally any desktop application to the folder and open the document. With the standard Save function of the application any changes are stored back to the ECM system.

All that simple and secure, because a fine-granular rights and role concept gives the users exactly the information and functions they need to accomplish their tasks. Thus, the effort of storing documents in the ECM system is not greater than saving them in the local file system. Redundant storage and overwriting of documents is avoided, while time is not wasted searching for the latest and “correct” document version. The employees’ productivity rises while at the same time all changes and versions are stored and tracked. Hence, compliance is easily achieved.

In spite of all that technical finesse, WeWebU Zero-Install Desktop Integration does not require any roll-out. Worldwide unique, it does not need any installation on the client, avoiding all related problems and costs. “Just add the link to Zero-Install Desktop Integration to your Computer folder once and you are ready to work with the documents from your ECM system! There is no more user-friendly or more intuitive way”, enthusiastically states Dr. Rainer Pausch.

Together with Alfresco WeWebU will present the Zero-Install Desktop Integration in a Webinar on May 24. Please register by following this link:
