Under the agreement, the companies will offer print stream capture and secure delivery of data and documents to existing and potential customers.

The Xenos d2e Platform transforms complex legacy data and documents into e-content formats, including XML, HTML, WML and PDF, allowing organizations to benefit from fast time to market and maximum return on investment. Xenos' blue-chip customers include American Express, Wells Fargo, Bank One, Charles Schwab, and ING ReliaStar.
