|Arbortext, Inc. has announced that Wolters Kluwer has chosen its Epic
software for XML content creation and will implement the Epic E-Content

selected their Epic software. The scalability ensures we can grow without
having to worry about re-engineering our infrastructure, ultimately saving
us time and money."

browser-based use of the Epic software to its authors throughout the company's
multiple locations, allowing them to collaborate as if they were working

and services that supports ASP deployment of Epic, also provides Wolters
Kluwer with greater flexibility, convenience, security, and cost-effectiveness
in using Epic.
