Rochester, N.Y.-based Xerox Corp. plans to buy e-collaboration vendor Advectis, Atlanta, for $32 million.Xerox’s expertise in document outsourcing and related services is what led the company to Advectis, a privately owned business. Advectis' Web-based BlitzDocs Collaboration Suite helps lenders, brokers, and investors manage the process needed to underwrite, audit, collaborate, deliver and archive loan documents electronically. "We're looking to help clients reduce costs and transform their business by offering a better experience for both end-users and operations," said John Kelly, president of Xerox Global Services North America. "Xerox's expertise in automating document processes is an ideal fit with Advectis' BlitzDocs paperless solution for mortgages." Xerox's all-cash purchase of Advectis also includes an additional performance-based supplement to the sale price. The acquisition is expected to close in the next 30 days. All Advectis employees will be retained. Xerox's document technology and services portfolio includes consulting and outsourcing services, records management, digital imaging, e-discovery for litigation support, and managed services in more than 160 countries.
