Liaison Development Timeline

April 15th, 1993, Liaison CRM was released. Our CRM was the first Contact Management System which provided a Microsoft Window Client and DOS Client that could simultaneously access a single data source from  Microsoft Windows client and a DOS workstation.

 

On March 6th, 2000 the first Liaison Messenger FORM system was purchased. At that time, the term EDD wasn’t exactly main stream. In fact, most people wouldn’t even have known what EDD meant.

 

Liaison Messenger’s emergence into the mid-market accounting field to automate the delivery of invoices, statements,  purchase orders,  acknowledgments  via fax and email was  leading edge technology. Liaison Messenger set the first bar.   Since then the industry has seen a plethora of email and fax solutions and other Outbound Document Management Systems clawing for a piece of the pie. 

 

Today, Liaison Software Corporation raises our own 18 year-old bar to new heights with our latest Outbound Document Management scripting tool and server: Liaison Messenger EDD.  This next-generation solution allows you to create amazing, powerful, and wonderfully rich Outbound Document Management automation routines for any sized company, department, and running any system.
