DocuWorks 9, a New Version of Document Handling Software, Supports the Work Style Reforms with Its New Functions for Mobile Work

Enhances Productivity and Streamlines Operations Under the Concept of “Anywhere, Anytime, for Anyone”

TOKYO, December 19, 2017 – Fuji Xerox Co., Ltd. will launch DocuWorks 9 from January 17, 2018, –the latest version of its document handling software, with new functions to link with cloud services for efficient mobile working.

DocuWorks, which enables electronic document management as if handling paper documents, has been evolving in line with the changing work styles and needs of customers since it was launched in 1998. With new functions for mobile work that allow users to continue an unfinished work anytime, anywhere, Fuji Xerox has further enhanced the software as a business portal that serves as an entrance to all business operations.

Once users have collected documents needed for their work in a new function "Task Space", they can store the documents in Fuji Xerox’s cloud service Working Folder by simply clicking the sync button. By accessing to that space from another PC or mobile terminal even outside the office, the users can view and edit any documents stored in the cloud service. Note 1, Note 2

In addition, the "Task Toolbar," a tool that enables users to visualize the work procedures by changing the icon positions following the work process, was enhanced to allow users to create multiple tabs. With those tabs, daily operations can be further streamlined enabling users to proceed multiple tasks concurrently. Newly added "Pencil Case" function enables to register electronic stationery (annotations) including stamps, notepad and markers, and to call up frequently or recently used functions.

With the growing momentum toward the work style reforms, it is urgent for companies to balance flexible, diversified work styles, as well as enhancing productivity and streamlining operations. However, accumulated paper documents and electronic ones created with various kinds of software are mixed together at offices, and it is difficult to manage them in a unified manner. In addition, an environment that allows digitized information to be systematically utilized for purposes, such as circulation of a document, has not been established. These circumstances obstruct realization of various work styles and enhanced productivity.

Fuji Xerox will continue to support its customers’ work style reforms through enhancement of DocuWorks and proposals for utilizing the software in their operations.
