Repstor launches the latest version of its Outlook content management tool

Repstor, the leading ECM adoption specialist, is pleased to announce the launch of the latest version of its Outlook content management tool Repstor affinityTM 3.0.

Microsoft® Outlook® is familiar to most as their email client. It is simple and easy to use. For many people it’s the first thing they open when they arrive in work, and the last thing closed before home time. They use it to collaborate with colleagues and customers.  Since we spend so much time in Outlook, wouldn’t it be ideal if all of the things we need for day-to-day work were accessible there?

Using Repstor affinity 3.0 makes this possible. Users get seamless access to their content repositories both on and offline without leaving the Outlook interface, regardless of what document repository it is saved in, meaning they can collaborate easily with colleagues. With this release there is enhanced Microsoft Word®, Excel® and PowerPoint® integration. You can compare documents and convert documents to Adobe® PDF directly from affinity. Property support has also been improved. Repstor affinity 3.0 adds new repository support for HighQ Collaborate and Meridio®, ECM repositories along with the existing SharePoint®, OneDrive®, HP® WorkSite® and HP Records Manager/TRIM® support. Access to Repstor affinity folders and content is now also possible using the file system through the Repstor driveTM product. This enables users to save from any Windows Application directly into Repstor affinity.

“With 3.0, the affinity product further extends its deep integration with Office®, 365 and other ECM repositories – providing access through the familiar interface of Microsoft Outlook without impacting Outlook’s stability or performance. We continue to deliver enterprise ECM user adoption by providing users with access to tools from where they prefer to do their work,” said Fergus Wilson, Repstor’s CTO.

Extending Repstor and Microsoft Office 365 Integration

The affinity 3.0 release delivers enhanced email and content management by providing deeper integration with Office 365 and the Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint products. In affinity 3.0 Repstor has provided a new Compare Word Documents content menu which compares the contents of two affinity documents in Word. Users can also convert documents accessed from affinity to Adobe PDF directly from the Microsoft Word application. 3.0 also improves property support for managed metadata and user and group properties (allowing auto-complete for these property types both on and offline).

New Repstor Drive Module

Repstor focuses on giving users the choice to manage their content and access their documents via the application of their choice. With affinity 3.0 Repstor delivers a new Repstor driveTM module which enables users to access and save content via Windows® Explorer®. Users are able to save to Repstor affinity in the File->Save dialog, removing the need to move away from the source application in order to add a document to the organizations repository.

Improved Repository Support

Today Repstor affinity leads the ECM market with its extensive integration tomultiple repositories. At every release of the affinity product Repstor aims to extend this support. Affinity 3.0 provides Outlook integration and support for the HighQ Collaborate product which is largely used as a collaboration tool for legal companies and also the Meridio ECM repository, providing users with the ability to store and access content in multiple repositories. Existing repository support has also been improved by providing property synchronization for HP WorkSite® and HP TRIM® repositories.
