Optio accelerates implementations with introduction of Rapid Document Design

Alpharetta 14 September 2004Optio Software, a provider of document output management and forms automation solutions, has introduced Rapid Document Design, a new facility that will streamline the implementation of document-driven processes and enable organisations to quickly create and deploy high volumes of mission-critical documents.


"Like many health care organisations, we have a large number of forms, over 1000", stated Avril Cardoso, manager of application services at the Credit Valley Hospital, a 366-bed facility in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada. "Optio's new Rapid Document Design offering will help us import forms, greatly reduce the overall forms development project lifecycle and garner a faster return on investment." The Credit Valley Hospital currently uses Optio e.ComIntegrate and DesignStudio to create and distribute admissions and other clinical forms.

Optio's Rapid Document Design (RDD) facility enables organisations to leverage their investment in existing forms and documents by converting them directly into granular, editable documents for use in Optio DesignStudio. RDD can utilize both electronic documents created by applications such as Microsoft Word or existing printed documents that can be scanned in and automatically converted. RDD may effectively reduce document layout times by 50 percent or more.

"Optio's Rapid Document Design facility is an ideal complement to our broad range solutions", stated Steve Kaye, Optio's vice president of marketing. "This accelerated approach will help health care institutions and other enterprises develop and deploy large numbers of documents and forms quickly and cost-effectively."

Optio's document output management solutions are also used by more than 5000 customers in virtually every industry and enterprise resource planning (ERP) environment to produce, enhance, distribute and exchange documents and other critical information via print, fax, e-mail and the web. Founded in 1981, Optio Software has world headquarters in Alpharetta, Georgia, EMEA headquarters in Paris and sales offices in Germany and the United Kingdom.
