OpenText is extending support of ApplicationXtender version 7 (SP1) to October 1, 2018 so that you have more time to evaluate the latest version of AX. For those that moved to version 8.0, please note that the end of support date is October 31, 2018.
We believe with this extra time you can review the first full release of ApplicationXtender under the OpenText branding -v16.3. It has a variety of new features: Web based scanning for zero install environments (browser client users), a new faster thumbnail preview, integrated text search and a new OCR engine that decreases processing time when compared to the performance of AX7.0. In fact, AX16.3 halves processing time for small documents and decreasing the time by 20% for files greater than 400 pages.
If you want more information about AX upgrades, please contact our support group.
We’re excited to announce ApplicationXtender 16.3 will be generally available on December 15th 2017.
First, let’s address the obvious question…Why did the version jump from 8.1 to 16.3??? Well, the answer is actually pretty simple. The current release for ALL OpenText products is release 16. ApplicationXtender has completely shifted all of its processes, technologies and management over to align with OpenText’s internal product and marketing.
OpenText is investing heavily in ApplicationXtender, and all of the products from the ECD acquisition. ApplicationXtender’s multi-year road map and strategy is exciting and fully endorsed by OpenText’s leadership.
The goal of this release is ease of use and a view towards an information management platform rather than just a bucket for content.
Web Access Features
This release is focused on ensuring that ApplicationXtender is a modern multi-platform experience. Web access is now the first choice of customers and AX 16.3 has expanded the features that are browser first.
Full feature, responsive mobile experience that includes:

Multi-touch support so that users can take advantage of not only tablets but touchscreen monitors.

Since its primary customers are trust companies, VeriComply acts as a sub-verification agent or document custodian. Basically, on getting the loan documents, it extracts data and compares it with loan/data tapes. Outcomes are then discussed with originators and trust company partners to remove any discrepancies. The report is then sent to the client notifying approval status. Loans are verified on various parameters and cover all characteristics of a loan: term, rates, state of origination, APR, etc. It also incorporates the borrower’s information for better analysis.
Considering this is an important cog in the selling of loans in secondary markets and securitization, automating the process gives credibility as well as integrity to the entire portfolio when it sells.
The state-of-art technology used to build the platform means it can quickly configure for multiple originators, loan types, documents, and various field verifications. Fees are charged for the configuration set up, per loan process, and for monthly storage.
The next version of ApplicationXtender is v16.3. The current version is v8.2 and the jump to v16.3 is to bring ApplicationXtender’s version number inline with other OpenText products. Click through the presentation below to review the new features:
