PHILADELPHIA, PA--(Marketwire - May 23, 2011) - MetaVis Technologies, Inc., a leader in SharePoint management tools, today announces the availability of MetaVis Information Manager for SharePoint 2010 which enables users to bulk import, copy and classify content directly from the SharePoint user interface. Information Manager is embedded directly into the SharePoint 2010 ribbon allowing authorized users to classify, upload and copy content using familiar controls and interfaces. MetaVis will demo Information Manager at SPTechCon, June 1-3 at the Sheraton Boston Hotel in booth #804.
MetaVis Information Manager allows authorized SharePoint users to copy content between different SharePoint sites, site collections, list and libraries; as well as bulk import from File Shares (while retaining file system metadata) and tag in one quick, simple process from the SharePoint ribbon. Users no longer have to individually classify documents or items, which can be a time consuming and tedious process. Instead users have the flexibility to apply metadata in bulk during file import, copy or just in-place to improve SharePoint search and findability.
"MetaVis Information Manager has given our users control over organizing their content in SharePoint," said William Henderson, IT Director for Winter Park Construction, one of nation's most respected general contractors. "Plus it has freed up IT by giving more power to users. Information Manager's seamless integration makes it appear as part of SharePoint."
MetaVis Information Manager allows users to:
- Import content in bulk from file systems and set metadata values; or map from NTFS and Folder names; maintain or remove existing folder structures;
- Select multiple documents or items and copy them to another list or library while applying or remapping existing metadata values;
- Change content types for multiple selected documents or items;
- Re-map fields to copy metadata values from one field to another;
- Enter values directly or select them from standard SharePoint columns including Managed Metadata Fields linked to Term Sets; and
- Perform metadata enrichment and content classification in SharePoint sites.
"While SharePoint 2010 provides tagging and classification technology it is limited to individual items making it an underutilized feature," said Peter Senescu, President and Co-founder of MetaVis Technologies. "Having classification capabilities and not using them is an opportunity lost for organizations. MetaVis Information Manager makes importing and tagging content seamless and easy. SharePoint information becomes well organized, manageable and most importantly, searchable."
