Content movement tools that allow organizations to more effectively manage their data are now our most popular products. Replicator is our fastest growing product that continues to be adopted by companies and government entities in globally distributed environments. This unique product was first developed in 2001 based on the requirements of an Australian engineering company and continues to be the most complete replication solution for Content Server in the world.
Our other Content Server content management products have been used across various industries and government organizations to manage data related to Content Server. These tools are primarily used to move data in and out of Content Server. A growing trend we have seen is the need to move data out of Content Server for use in other applications. Organizations also use our Export tool to do complex data manipulation outside of Content Server and then put the modified data back into Content Server using our Import tool. Tools like SendLinks and Live-Mail provide alternative interface options that meet unique requirements of some organizations.
