DocuWare`s latest release of its Integrated Document Management System now offers DocuWare Web Client with much of the functionality contained in the company's Windows Client. Users benefit from super-charged performance with greater ease all at the same low Total Cost of Ownership. The Internet makes flexibility document access from any location at any time.
Web-based document management is a reality. DocuWare began meeting this technological goal four years ago. At CeBIT 2008, DocuWare presented its Web Client for the first time, and with the help of real-life feedback, this new technology continues to be further developed. The DocuWare 5.1c Web Client now provides most of the key features of Windows Client. In its development, the company not only focused on functionality, performance and scalability but also emphasised user-friendliness and overall well-roundedness. The advantage: common workflow processes can be mirrored, making training a breeze and ensuring high acceptance among users.
Baskets Now Available Via the Web
An important component of the document management system are its baskets, which are used in much the same way as those found on a desk. They are now available with DocuWare Web Client and provide the same functionality as those of the proven Windows Client. All documents contained in baskets can also be shown in a viewer or opened in an original program (such as Microsoft Office), then edited and indexed for storage. It's also possible, for example, to process multiple documents simultaneously and add annotations to every page of a document. Documents can be displayed in simple/detailed list form or as icons. In addition, documents in Web Client may be displayed in cover flow mode. This is particularly helpful when scrolling through documents found in a basket.
New Clients and Modules
Another highlight accompanying DocuWare 5.1c is the Smart Connect module for the simple integration of external applications. A user with basic IT knowhow can set up a configuration and place a special button anywhere in many of today's leading software programs. At this point it just takes a mouse click to access documents that relate to a current transaction. The configuration program is Browser-based and can be directly opened out of Web Client again, nothing needs to be installed locally.
Further Simplifying Daily Workflow Processes
Features for optimising processes were also a big focus during the development of DocuWare 5.1c. Using a new Notification Server, for example, an e-mail goes out as soon as a document has been stored or index entries have been changed. The configuration can be set up by an administrator or user; the service can then be easily shared with by other users. And last but not least...the system's overall administration and installation were further simplified.
