The new version of Beta Systems DCI Software AG’s ‘Beta UX’ output management and archive suite delivers an enhanced hierarchical structure. This and added commands, granular priority print control, new note types and AES encryption make document handling in V4.4 more secure and intuitive.
The Beta UX Output Management and Archive Suite 4.4. allows you to manage and archive high volumes of documents and logs originating from all key corporate applications across a wide range of platforms including z/OS, UNIX/Linux, Windows and SAP. The modular solution comprises the Beta UX ContentMaster, Beta UX DistributionMaster and Beta UX LogMaster components. Beta UX supports several output channels, such as production printers, printer networks, digital distribution systems and applications.
The New Release Addresses Actual Customer Demands
Beta UX 4.4 visualizes multiple index fields, e.g. company, division and department, in a hierarchical structure. Users can place lists and documents into this Windows-IE-style tree view during indexing and perform searches from there. The resulting overview of records greatly facilitates case processing. Occasional users, too, benefit from the new structure as they can retrieve documents much more rapidly than before. Moreover, users can configure individual searches based on processes and persons. This applies to all Beta UX components, including log files managed in LogMaster. The new feature was implemented in direct response to customer feedback.
The new release allows users to prioritize print jobs for the various departments in a highly granular manner – both for manually triggered and batch print jobs. This makes it possible to fast-track very urgent documents and process them before normal production jobs, which have a maximum of two priority levels. Thanks to this feature, production managers can spontaneously respond to ad-hoc requests for printouts/reprints.
Five New Commands
The Beta UX V4.4 command interface offers five new commands that bring added transparency and speed to database queries and data analysis. This furthermore provides the basis for achieving increased process automation with Beta UX.
In addition, Beta UX now makes the LToken available as a unique technical document ID to speed up search queries. As a result, whenever the document ID is known, for instance because it is listed in the log file, users can access the associated document reliably and with ease.
AES Encryption Standard
Another novelty is the increased range of note types at the users’ disposal, which now includes the thumbnail and signature types. These can be used to view thumbnails and compliance-relevant information without even opening the document. So-called ‘side files’ complement documents and now allow for evaluating information when reading MS-Office documents. Users can also store an index of the main document in the side file. To top things off, Beta UX supports encryption of transferred data using the AES standard and offers document output in UTF-8 via the buxtxt2u.exe conversion tool. This is of great value to international companies, as it enables them to search for indexes using Japanese or Arabic characters.
