Xerox is expected to announce new document processing software next week that could improve the efficiency of content management systems.
According to a statement from the company, scientists from Xerox Research Center Europe will announce new software Thursday that can examine the contents of an electronic document and then classify it by subject.
The software, which Xerox intends to license to other technology companies, could be used to automatically route documents into a content management system. Content management is a fast-growing category of business applications that store and catalog corporate text, ranging from e-mail messages to regulatory filings.
Xerox's categorizing software could improve the efficiency of such systems by automating the storage of documents and making it easier for workers to find the document they need. The system uses a hierarchical method that recognizes relationships between one category and another.
