DocuWorks 9 supports cloud, mobility

Fuji Xerox Asia Pacific has launched DocuWorks 9. New features allow the document handling software to link with Fuji Xerox’s cloud services for efficient mobile activity.

DocuWorks enables electronic documents such as office documents and image files to be handled just as if they are paper documents. With the new functions for mobile work, users can now continue unfinished work anytime, anywhere.

Once users have collected documents needed for their work in a new function called Task Space, they can store the documents in Fuji Xerox’s cloud service, Working Folder, by simply clicking the sync button. If they enter Task Space from another PC or mobile device, whether remotely or internally, they will be able to view and edit any documents stored in the cloud service*.

Basic services are now more secure through adopting Amazon Web Services, and the storage capacity of the cloud-based Working Folder has increased by more than 10 times. Working Folder’s basic service now provides 100 GB of storage and can be expanded to up to 5 TB.

In addition, the Task Toolbar, a tool that enables users to visualise the work procedures by changing the icon positions following the work process, was enhanced to allow users to create multiple tabs. With this, daily operations can be further streamlined, enabling users to accomplish multiple tasks quickly and concurrently. Other functions, such as the newly added Pencil Case function, helps improve ease of use by enabling users to register electronic stationery (annotations) including stamps, notepad and markers, and also helps improve efficiency by allowing users to easily call up frequently or recently used functions.

“Together, DocuWorks and Working Folder provide an integrated platform for businesses to manage accumulated paper and electronic documents in a unified manner — opening up the possibilities of a wide range of work styles to achieve greater productivity.” said Keh Joo Tan, Senior Manager l,  cloud service marketing, Fuji Xerox Asia Pacific.

DocuWorks is document-handling software. The company has given out 5 million DocuWorks licences as of July 2017 in cumulative shipments in Japan.

*Cloud linkage with Task Space requires a separate Working Folder contract.

PCs to be used outside the office require DocuWorks, and mobile terminals require a free mobile app, DocuWorks Viewer Light 4 (either iOS or Android edition).
