Easy to Use! Cincom Eloquence’s easy-to-use interface was co-developed with Human Factors International, experts in the area of user-centered design, and leverages the features, content-editing, and formatting capabilities of Microsoft Word—including WordML, Microsoft’s published, open XML schema. This enables you to move document design and generation out of the IT department and onto the desktops of non-technical, line-of-business professionals for more timely, accurate, and relevant document communications.
Easy to Integrate! Cincom Eloquence helps you optimize enterprise-wide legacy investments by effortlessly integrating with core business applications, databases, and information-technology infrastructures. Cincom Eloquence was engineered based on an open, J2EE/XML service-oriented architecture (SOA) that utilizes either JBOSS or IBM’s industry-leading WebSphere technology.
