The integration of sigmalink and E3 forms a single source publishing system for
fast, efficient and low maintenance creation, management and publishing of
information to multiple audiences via multiple media.  Content may be captured
from many internal and external sources, including suppliers and various
departments within the organization. With the Interchange functionality of E3,
non-XML content (i.e. from Word, FrameMaker, Interleaf or Web forms) can be
converted to XML and managed by sigmalink. Out of the single source, sigmalink
delivers information for publishing to the E3 formatting engine, which formats
according to media-specific requirements.  sigmalink and E3 provide multiple
source input, flexible content management, and multiple target output
functionality for a seamless enterprise information management environment.

“Arbortext and empolis have a long history of working together,” said Nathan

integrate sigmalink with E3 builds on our already-strong relationship with
empolis and continues to protect our customers’ investments in our products.”
