Buyers Lab Honors Prism DocRecord with Summer 2011 “Pick” Award in the Document Management Category

Summer 2011

Hackensack, NJ., - July 19, 2011 –  Buyers Laboratory Inc. (BLI), the world’s leading independent evaluator of document imaging hardware and software, today announced that Prism Software’s DocRecord 3.3 has been honored with a Summer 2011 “Pick” award as “Outstanding Enterprise Document Management Solution.” For BLI’s prestigious “Pick” awards, BLI editors and test technicians select the top-performing products evaluated in BLI's lab during the previous six months.

“A robust document management solution is a surefire way for companies to streamline document-intensive processes, increase productivity and collaboration for knowledge workers, and ultimately save money” said Jamie Bsales, senior product editor for solutions at BLI. “Prism’s DocRecord accomplishes all those goals and more, delivering a completely customizable multi-user system that scales from a few users to thousands.”

DocRecord is designed for organizations in any industry, with particular emphasis on vertical markets such as healthcare, financial services and education. The system can incorporate both electronic files and scanned hardcopy documents so users can index, categorize, annotate and store critical documents in much less time than paper-based workflows entail. Using DocRecord’s metadata and full-text indexing, users can search, retrieve, and view documents based upon user-defined searches or administrator-predefined searches.

BLI technicians found DocRecord 3.3 to be one of the most feature-complete systems BLI has evaluated to date, and the platform’s hardware compatibility is also impressive. Prism has also made DocRecord exceedingly easy to use for knowledge workers, with a UI that resembles Microsoft Outlook and a range of conveniences to keep keying of data to a minimum.

“We are honored that Buyers Lab selected DocRecord as a ‘Pick’ award winner for Summer 2011,” said David Ayres, CEO. “Prism’s goal is to offer a wide range of highly featured and easy-to-use applications for the creation, workflow, and management of all stages of the electronic document within an organization. DocRecord is key to that goal.”
