Davisor Introduces Offisor Transformations, Adds PowerPoint to Offisor 3.0 Parsers

Davisor, a developer of Java-based data visualization, conversion and presentation tools, has introduced two new Java- and XML-based products, which enable companies to convert legacy documents from different sources into XML, and to publish fully personalized materials by merging dynamic information into these legacy documents. The new Offisor Transformations allows companies to convert their legacy documents into several different output formats. Offisor Transformations converts Offisor XML outputs into HTML, XHTML, XSL-FO (PDF), RTF and DocBook. With Offisor Transformations companies can now produce different types of demanding outputs from their legacy data. Offisor Transformations is used together with Offisor, which converts legacy documents fully into XML. Davisor has released Offisor 3.0, which now converts also PowerPoint documents into XML, in addition to Word and HTML documents and images contained in them. With Offisor 3.0, companies can fully access their document archives containing valuable data in different formats, and search for the information they need. Offisor Transformations can then be used to publish the documents both on- and off-line and in print. Davisor Offisor and Transformations can be used to create e.g. personalized marketing materials, offers, order confirmations, invoices etc. from Word templates and dynamic data coming from different sources. Offisor can be either embedded into any pure Java application or used independently with command line applications. Davisor Offisor 3.0 and Offisor Transformations are available today. www.davisor.com
