NextDocs and Adlib Celebrate The Success of Their SharePoint Partnership,
Bringing SharePoint-based Document Management to the Life Sciences Industry

BURLINGTON, ON, Oct. 19 /CNW/ - Adlib Software, the leader in server-based innovations in document conversion, Optical Character Recognition and publishing, today announced the success of its partnership with NextDocs, the leading provider of Microsoft Office SharePoint(R) Server-based document and quality management solutions for the life sciences industry. In a partnership spanning three years, the shared commitment of the two firms to address the regulatory submission challenges of life sciences firms has resulted in successful deployments at dozens of the largest firms around the globe.

The announcement coincides with the Microsoft SharePoint Conference taking place in Las Vegas, where both Adlib and NextDocs are demonstrating their software solutions for Microsoft SharePoint users.

"By integrating our technology inside its cutting-edge solutions, NextDocs has introduced Adlib into an extraordinary range of pharmaceutical, research and health care firms," said Brian Kernohan, vice president of channel sales at Adlib. "Their customers benefit from our proven document rendering and publishing for life sciences in their built-in-SharePoint solution."

Leveraging the content management capabilities of SharePoint, NextDocs provides regulatory document and quality management solutions for life sciences companies. Adlib is embedded seamlessly in the NextDocs platform, along with a complete set of features and capabilities that address the regulatory and business requirements that life sciences companies face. When a change of life cycle state or a workflow step in NextDocs calls for a PDF rendition or operation, it is Adlib that completes the task.

"We selected Adlib for our rendering partner because Adlib is quite simply the industry standard," said Ken Lownie, vice president of life sciences of NextDocs. "And from a functionality perspective, it works seamlessly within the SharePoint environment, which is absolutely essential. It's there, it's solid and it works."

Both NextDocs and Adlib Software are Microsoft Gold Certified Partners.
