docQuest 5.0 Delivers Efficiencies and Faster ROI for the Extended Enterprise

Digital Paper's docQuest Streamlines Key Business Operations for Manufacturers, Utilities and Government (October 10, 2001)
Digital Paper Corporation, an innovative provider of secure
technical content exchange and collaboration software, today announced
the immediate availability of its docQuest product, version 5.0.
docQuest 5.0 allows organizations to securely exchange and collaborate
on complex technical content (e.g., engineering drawings,
specifications, blueprints, etc.) across the Web. The product includes
new capabilities that speed and improve the efficiency of purchasing,
manufacturing, field services and facilities management -- while also
delivering a fast return on investment.

"In developing the newest version of docQuest, we enhanced our
customers' capability to address their key business processes," said
Christopher E. Fountain, president and CEO of Digital Paper. "The new
docQuest 5.0 functionality will enhance productivity, speed operations
and improve how organizations do business with their suppliers,
partners and customers. These benefits are more important than ever as
our customers work to weather a weaker economy."

For purchasing departments, Digital Paper's docQuest system will
reduce procurement costs by helping companies effectively outsource a
greater percentage of direct goods and enable more suppliers to
compete in the bidding process. By providing secure immediate online
access to requests for information (RFI), requests for proposals (RFP)
and requests for quotes (RFQ) that may consist of hundreds of
technical documents, docQuest accelerates the bidding process.
docQuest also helps reduce response delays and re-bidding by ensuring
that suppliers are working with the latest document revision. In
addition, by avoiding mass file transfers and downloads, an
organization is able to minimize bandwidth contention as well as other
associated technical problems.

Manufacturing operations employees do not have ready access to
engineering drawings to build or inspect components of finished
products. Often the drawings are stored in a central location, and it
can take hours or even days to request, locate and print the
appropriate drawing. In addition, these drawings are often out of
date, which can lead to costly delays and rework. Users no longer need
to worry about having the right application on their desktop or wait
hours for a print request. docQuest eliminates the costly delays
involved in accessing the right content. For manufacturing,
engineering change notifications (ECNs) are critical to effective
operations. Delayed or late ECN communications can cost manufacturers
millions of dollars in scrap/rework, labor costs and loss of
production time. With docQuest's patent-pending ViewMark(TM)
technology, users can mark-up drawings, graphically communicating
questions and comments to other users. This capability allows
annotations to be notated on the drawing without altering the original
state of the document. Collaboration partners will no longer have to
wait days or weeks for notifications of changes or answers to
