Wadestown, Wellington, New Zealand, 2007/04/27 - With the US redaction market being driven by competing Freedom of Information and privacy compliance issues, New Zealand-based software house, Onstream Systems, is seeing a massive upsurge in demand for its industry leading RapidRedact™ product.
Besides US federal FOI demands the potential market for RapidRedact™ has been recently boosted by growing debate related to identity theft and the general public’s demands for the removal of social security numbers from public documents, according to OnstreamSystem’s CEO, Glyn Williams.
Williams, who attended the FOSE 2007 convention - designed to showcase the latest in Technology to US Government IT professionals - in late March, said that as a result of federal and state government action Onstream System’s US partners were facing an unprecedented demand for the New Zealand-designed RapidRedact™ product.
He attributed the successful penetration of the US market by RapidRedact™ to the fact that unlike many other redaction products available it could handle any electronic document, rather than just PDF files.
Besides this it is able to redact Social Security numbers, US phone numbers, email addresses, credit card numbers, and any other information that can be defined.
Besides the success at FOSE 2007, Williams said, Onstream Systems also had considerable success at the LegalTech tradeshow in New York earlier in the year.
Williams said besides selling the RapidRedact™ product to an increasing number of federal and local government agencies in the US and Canada, Onstream Systems had also found demand was growing in law enforcement and associated agencies.
As a result Onstream Systems, besides having a direct relationship with US resellers, had set up an OEM agreement with EDAC Systems, a specialist software house providing document management solutions to the US Federal Government.
