VillageEDOCS, Inc., the strategic business information specialist focused on providing Software as a Service (SaaS) capabilities which extend the client’s network by leveraging and/or replacing legacy systems with unified and intelligently automated solutions, today announced the release of MessageVision Platform (MVP) Version 2.0, with major updates to the Questys-MessageVision CMx (Content Management), WFx (Workflow) and LSx (Legislative Agenda Management) modules.

Available to new and existing Questys-MessageVision customers as an upgrade, the new 2.0 build represents what CEO of VEDO, Mason Conner, called a “new milestone in the delivery of Questys-MessageVision software”, with shorter time-to-market windows, resulting from the application of the Company’s Agile Development and testing processes.

Conner noted that the new modules were fundamental to the MVP’s functionality, which combines electronic information exchange, content and business process management with unified communications “into one unique SaaS, in a private or public cloud”.

CMx 2.0 provides a centralized secure environment for the real-time creation, sharing and editing of documents, conversations or ideas – leading to improved yield of actionable intelligence and enhanced situational awareness of existing business application systems.

CMx 2.0 is specifically designed for small- to medium-sized companies and mid-sized enterprises as a full-spectrum, e-document and content management solution which enables seamless control over all documents in a secure environment where regulatory standard compliance can be assured – constituting a digital solution to paper-based workflow costs, enabling greater efficiency while eliminating the need for a majority of physical documentation.

When CMx 2.0 is combined with the Business Process Management power of WFx 2.0, costly manual processes can be easily grasped systematically and automated for improved output and an even greater reduction of paper use.

The symbiotic relationship between content and business process management systems leads to a variety of efficiency improvements:

• Time and cost reduction from automating paper-based processes
• Universal content accessibility since it is now in a digital form while reducing paper consumption thus enhancing ‘green’ profile
• Real-time sharing and ease of locating files in a fast and intuitive environment which improves communication organically allowing for more sophisticated collaborative exchanges both with the clientele and associates/partners

LSx 2.0 for municipalities automates agenda handling in a way that is ultimately web-accessible: from making staff reports, packets or agendas to a real-time roll-call, vote tabulator and minutes recorder – all in a single package which also performs archiving of old agendas or backup material and allows the user to search by keywords, agenda item titles or full-text.

LSx allows the user to create custom agendas to satisfy the unique needs of each municipality, offers improved reporting capabilities (meeting summary, voting, legislative history), and advanced WFx workflow integration which can completely automate approval routing of any item on the agenda.
