This unique agreement will feature and exploit our new DataOceans colorized layer and interactive layer solutions technology that is also being announced today.    The layer approach allows for a quicker deployment of the DataOceans iPDF by identifying colorized-targets and clear-zones on existing legacy statements and adding a colorized layer for print and an interactive layer for electronic versions of traditional monochromatic and static legacy documents.

“Our first proof of concept of the colorized and interactive layering approach was with a large healthcare payer (more than 20M members), but to see it fully deployed is quite exciting” said Dave Hickson, CMO of DataOceans.

DataOceans Announces Third PCI Level 1 Compliant Certification and Mobile Payment Offerings

DataOceans, LLC has been audited and certified that it is PCI Level 1 compliant for the third year in a row. In addition, DataOceans, LLC now announces upgrades to its existing Payment Processing capabilities to include Mobile Payments.

DataOceans is certified PCI (Payment Card Industry) Level 1 compliant again for the third year. Continuing this certification allows DataOceans’ clients to have one service provider for their statement creation, delivery (print or electronic), and payment processing needs.

For example, a DataOceans client is delivered a personalized and branded webpage for both Debit/Credit Card and ACH (online check payment) payment entry that is hosted in the DataOceans Data Center. These pay pages are “device aware” and are user-experience personalized for full-size PC’s, Mac’s, tablets, or phones. The content density is appropriately controlled as is also the call to action, e.g., full-size computer is “click to pay” and a mobile device “tap to pay.” Also, additional features such as “schedule a payment” and “establish recurring payments” are included in this expanded offering.

Suzanne Bridgers, VP of Client Services, elaborates on this expanded offering by explaining: “Certification for PCI Level 1 Compliance for our pay page immediately identifies to our clients that their customer payments are being processed with the highest level of security and protection in the industry. With today’s sensitivity to credit card data confidentiality, DataOceans’ clients can be assured that we are doing everything possible to protect them and their customers. With the addition of the mobile awareness, our pay page is not only secure but convenient.”

DataOceans Expands “Business Empowerment” for Document Composition and Targeted Marketing

ATLANTA, GA – June 6, 2013 – DataOceans, LLC, a leading provider of software solutions and services that help customers in the banking, healthcare, utility, broadband and communications industries unlock data from multiple existing systems to create and deliver newly enhanced and highly personalized full-color, interactive documents, such as bills, statements, invoices, and notices, today announced upgrades to its existing electronic delivery and interactive PDF (iPDF) capabilities.

DataOceans has enhanced its offerings for document composition and TCM (Targeted Cross Marketing or Targeted Content Management) to facilitate control of both applications by the business lines versus IT (Information Technology) groups in medium to large corporations.

In many large corporations the wait for a meeting with IT to discuss document and marketing change requests and prioritization can take several weeks or in some cases, even months. Then, IT needs weeks or more to digest the request from the business lines that that own customer-facing documents and marketing operations before IT can provide an estimate (time, costs, priority) of implement each request. And often, several months later, the changes or enhancements to documents and marketing are completed.

With the new enhancements to DataOceans’ VisualPDF for Document Composition and TCM for Marketing and Messaging, control is now passed to the business line leaders thus dramatically shortening document and marketing/messaging change cycle-times, improving control and providing the business lines with more accuracy of the look and feel of documents and marketing. Using the VisualPDF and TCM UI’s (User Interfaces), a business analyst with a light technical background can make changes in minutes vs. weeks, months, and in some cases, quarters.

Chien Hsiung, Chief Architect at DataOceans, describes the enhancement as “Business Empowerment” and recognized the need for it several years ago, e.g. a layer between IT and business, that empowers business to have thought and implementation control over customer-facing documents and messaging and marketing without the bureaucracy and struggle for human capital and enterprise priority competition.

DataOceans Expands Electronic Delivery Capabilities to Include Mobile Devices

ATLANTA, GA – April 17, 2013 – DataOceans, a leading provider of software solutions and services that help customers in the banking, healthcare, utility, broadband and communications industries unlock data from multiple existing systems to create and deliver newly enhanced and highly personalized full-color, interactive documents, such as bills, statements, invoices, and notices, today announced upgrades to its existing electronic delivery and interactive PDF (iPDF) capabilities.

DataOceans has expanded the iPDF to include mobile delivery solutions for phones and tablets including iPhone, Droid, and iPad devices. Each iPDF will now be dynamically sized for the appropriate device in which the iPDF is being viewed. The new updates utilize what Chien Hsiung, Chief Architect at DataOceans, describes as “form factor personalization.”

Dave Hickson, Chief Marketing Officer at DataOceans, describes the presentation of statement content as “dynamic content density,” meaning the level of detail in each iPDF is tailored for the appropriate device. When the iPDF is viewed from a full size computer or laptop, the “content density” is at its default maximum. When the iPDF is viewed from a tablet device the content density will be set to medium, and when the iPDF is viewed from a mobile phone the content density is set to light.

The default call to action on a DataOceans iPDF is “click here to…” but on iPDFs for mobile devices, the call to action is “tap to…” for interactions such as payment, contact customer service, view prior statements, and more. This will allow client’s customers to view iPDFs on mobile devices (phones and tablets) and have the ability to “tap for detailed information” or “tap for a detailed statement.” The recipient will then receive the appropriately sized iPDF and content density for their viewing device, and the iPDF will also facilitate a drill down for detail or retrieval of the full iPDF if the need arises.
