edocs unveils additional XML & XSL functionality
As the business of transforming unstructured legacy data into highly structured XML formats increases, software vendors like edocs (a provider of Internet billing and customer management software and services), create faster programs to ease transition pains. edocs recently released XMLDirect, a graphical application development environment and high-performance XML/XSL (extensible mark-up language/extensible stylesheet language) formatting engine which simplifies XML generation from unstructured legacy data. The program transfers bill, statement, trade confirmation and other transactional document data directly into XML without the need to write programming code in languages such as C++, Java or Perl. XMLDirect builds on the strengths of edocs BillDirect platform, which is an off-the-shelf software solution that transforms transactional content into personalized, interactive communications for enabling customer care and marketing via the Internet. BillDirect is used by high-volume billers such as American Express and General Electric (GE) Capital.
