InstaColl Offers MS Office ECM Lite

InstaColl offers a sort of lightweight enterprise content management (ECM) for Microsoft Office. Plugins let you:

  • Retain control of documents you’ve distributed
  • Monitor, in real time, when documents are opened and printed, etc.
  • Automatically update content that’s been distributed
  • Define and enforce document lifetime policies, such as review/edit/approval cycles

Today, it works mainly with Excel and Word, through plugins that do their work by communicating with a central server. The product’s been out since April 2005. Sounds interesting.

A demo service is available for two users, letting you test the system before purchase.
