It is common for design departments of the construction industry, to save digitized technical drawings in special format or TIFF format, and manage them separately from office documents. With DocuWorks 7.0, however, office documents through sales activities including estimates, contracts and inspection reports can be managed in an integrated fashion with documents created through construction processes including drawings for design, simply by digitizing them into DocuWorks format. This facilitates effective company-wide information sharing. In addition, DocuWorks 7.0 realizes greater visibility by displaying documents equally reduced on the DocuWorks Desk (see Image 1), which makes it easy to recognize at a glance which are large drawings resulting in higher efficiency.
Fuji Xerox has achieved 2.4 million license sales in the domestic market (as of September 30, 2008). Meanwhile, a total of 250,000 licenses have been sold overseas in a variety of languages, including Japanese, English, French, Chinese and Korean as Fuji Xerox continues efforts to deploy the software worldwide.
