Management (CCM) solution by incorporating AFPC functionality and
formats across industries
SAN MATEO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
(NASDAQ: BIRT), The BIRT Company™ – delivering more insights
to more people than all BI companies combined, today announced that
Actuate’s Content Services Group (CSG) has joined the AFPC (Advanced
Function Presentation Consortium). Actuate’s Content Services Group
(formerly Xenos Group) enables organizations to develop, implement and
manage enterprise-class Customer Communications Management (CCM)
solutions. Actuate for CCM™ is used to design, process, store, and
deliver high-volume content – including statements, policies and
invoices. As one of the most common presentation architectures for
monochrome and color production variable-data printing, AFP is a popular
format for high-volume print stream output.
“Many of Actuate’s customers create millions of print streams in their
day-to-day billing and transactional output. To keep up with this
volume, tools are needed to efficiently process and store such documents
and print streams,” said Jeff Williams, Director of Product Management
for the Content Services Group at Actuate. “AFP is designed with such
companies in mind, and allows them to accommodate high-volume print
streams and stay on top of their business needs. Actuate for CCM works
seamlessly with AFP – ensuring that we remain current and deliver
products that capitalize on all new AFP functionality.”
The AFPC helps develop, define and promote AFP architecture for
developers and software manufacturers, ensuring seamless
interoperability of AFP products from various AFPC members, and
providing compatibility between AFP and other presentation environments.
The AFPC gives developers a forum where they can share AFP knowledge,
and offers decision makers the ability to learn about the roles and
capabilities of AFP and AFP’s subset standards in Enterprise Content
Management (ECM) and other electronic document applications.
