START NOW Program From enChoice Reduces Time, Costs and Resources Required for ASG/Mobius ViewDirect Migrations

TEMPE, AZ--(Marketwired - October 26, 2015) - enChoice®, Inc. announced today its START NOW℠ program for ASG/Mobius ViewDirect® customers planning to migrate to new enterprise report management (ERM) systems. The START NOW program reduces the time, costs and resources associated with ViewDirect migrations by providing automated archive extraction services using enChoice's exclusive enTools Extractor software.

The ViewDirect data extraction and conversion process, which must be performed prior to all migrations, often takes years due to the volume of data involved and complexities introduced by ViewDirect's proprietary file format. With START NOW, the extraction and conversion process is started well in advance of the migration, enabling ViewDirect customers to spread data conversion costs over time and minimize the impact on daily production processing. Experienced enChoice engineers remotely manage all processes, enabling internal IT staff to focus on other priorities.

"Most companies aren't aware that it can take years to extract data in preparation for a migration. They usually end up renewing their legacy system license for an extra term or paying a very steep price to extract massive amounts of data in a short time period," said Ken Foster, director, ERM services, enChoice. "Every single migration customer I've worked with says they wished they'd started at least a year earlier."

The START NOW program includes options for weekly and historical extractions. Weekly extractions extract and convert new files on a weekly basis, while historical extractions extract and convert older ViewDirect files. Weekly extractions stop ViewDirect from "growing," enabling companies that are uncertain about their migration plans to significantly reduce the time required for extractions once they're ready to move forward. All extracted files are stored on low cost server disk.

Developed by engineers with over 50 years of ViewDirect experience, enTools Extractor extracts and converts all ViewDirect archives back into their original format with indexing and annotations using the ASG Java API. enTools Extractor also uses a federally-approved audit process to ensure all files are extracted and converted successfully. The enTools Extractor for ViewDirect has been used to extract billions of pages of customer archives.

enTools software products for other ERM and ECM (enterprise content management) systems are currently under development.
