DocuShare Archive Assistant update

It's one thing to archive your documents and another to delete old content from your archive server. Xerox could only address that by doing a search for documents and other objects using their standard search interface. If some of your documents were marked as Hold for legal or operational reasons, you could inadvertently delete such documents or other objects.
The Expunger, now bundled with the DocuShare Archive Assistant, is our new functionality to list your documents ready to delete on the archive server. I've added documentation you can review to see how it works along with best practices ideas for lifecycle management. You can see that at Look for the "Using the DSAA Expunger" link.

DocuShare SharePoint Integration

This free option for DocuShare 6.6.1 installations allows easy access to DocuShare content and simultaneous searching with the ability to browse and manage DocuShare documents, collections, and workspaces from your SharePoint installation.

Contex IQ-2490 CIS wide-format scanner

Contex has added an Ethernet port to this low-volume engineering scanner that handles sheets up to A1 size (up to two feet wide by three feet long). Their xDTR2 (extended data transfer rate) technology accelerates real-world performance for Ethernet and USB interfaces. These speed enhancement features work together to enable twice as many scanned documents per day than other scanners can deliver – regardless of “inch per second” performance.

Criteria First invited to participate in ABBYY VAR Council

Having discovered the great value that ABBYY FormReader was about six years ago, I'd joined as one of their first value-added resellers and could see that their channel program was in its infancy at that time.  ABBYY had initially provided OCR engines for other vendors and introduced the highly acclaimed FineReader product to the retail market.  Having helped found the Xerox channel program for DocuShare and other products, I provided ongoing feedback and advice to ABBYY's management and was pleased to find them receptive to my suggestions.  ABBYY is kicking off a revised channel program and forming a council with their most valued resellers including Criteria First.  We're honored to be included and hope that our suggestions will be implemented in some way that benefits our customers.  While I won't be able to share the content of any confidential conversations with you, please feel free to contribute any ideas or concerns you have about ABBYY's products and services to me and I'll make sure your voice is heard at our next quarterly council meeting.  The first is to be held on November 14th, so call or write today if you would like to contribute your input.
