The EXPORT Problem

  • You want to migrate your documents from one Filenet system to another.

  • You are a loan brokerage firm that needs to transfer sold portfolios to your buyer.

  • You want to migrate data from one Filenet media to another (OSAR, MSAR, CSAR, magnetic WORM device, …) and you need to manipulate the data (documents or metadata) in a way that Filenet doccopy does not allow.

  • You want to export documents from Filenet to replicate them in another business application or vendor’s ECM.

The IMPORT Problem

  • Your service bureau scans paper documents and gives you images and metadata.

  • Your company purchased another company, and you must consolidate documents from their system into your Filenet ECM system.

  • You purchased a large number of loans or accounts and need to import the data quickly.

  • You have host or mainframe downloads that you must format and import into your ECM system.

  • You are upgrading your system and need to transfer your data from the old to new format.

What you need is a tool that allows you to move documents quickly and accurately.
