Open Text Announces Livelink Review Manager for Acrobat

Open Text Corporation said it will release a new product this month called Livelink Review Manager for Acrobat, which lets users securely execute multiple, parallel reviews of legal and regulatory documents. Livelink Review Manager for Acrobat integrates the review and comment features of Acrobat with Livelink’s document management features. With Livelink Review Manager for Acrobat, users’ changes are maintained in separate comment files within the repository and linked to the original document. The input from reviewers can then be assessed and consolidated by editors, who are the only ones with access to the original, which is securely protected in Livelink. The solution also adds a Review Comments tab to Livelink, giving document authors access to review history, including the names of the reviewers, a link to the associated comment files, and the dates and times when the comment files were modified. Livelink Review Manager can be installed with no plug-ins or downloads required, and works with Acrobat 5.0.5 and above.
