Every NextPage-tracked document contains a “silver thread,” connecting different document versions together to ensure that users always have access to the latest informationwhether the document is saved as an e-mail attachment, stored on a shared drive, or stored on a personal hard drive. The service keeps track of status and versioning information, even when documents are e-mailed outside an organization, renamed or sent to non-subscribers. With NextPage 1.5, team members automatically receive notifications about the status of documents, such as who is currently editing a document and who has worked on different versions in the past. A real-time notification to users who begin to edit an outdated version prevents inconsistencies. NextPage 1.5 will be generally available in the first quarter of 2005. www.nextpage.com
