Whether working in production, retail, service, government, health care, finance or any other industry over 10,000 customers have elected to use DocuWare's integrated document management system since the company's founding in 1988. Around 550 of these customers are found in Great Britain and Ireland.
The client base of DocuWare is constantly growing now reaching more than 10,000 customers encompassing over 100,000 actual users. The German software company was founded in 1988. From the very beginning, the product was designed to be sold exclusively through an international network of Authorised DocuWare Partners. Today, DocuWare's commitment to markets worldwide is at the heart of its success. DocuWare Corporation, the first foreign subsidiary, was established ten years ago in the US. In 2005, DocuWare Ltd was added in the UK with additional subsidiaries in Paris (DocuWare SARL/2008) and Barcelona (DocuWare S.L./2009) soon thereafter.
Available in 17 Languages
Half of the over 10,000 customers are based in German-speaking countries, approx. 3,500 are based on the North American continent, and the rest are found throughout Europe, the Middle East and Asia. Worldwide success has been possible by offering the software in 17 languages, including versions, for example, in Arabic and Japanese.
"We started with the goal of developing software that would enable users to manage all of their documents in one central document pool regardless of the document type or their industry", remembers DocuWare co-president, Juergen Biffar. "This core idea remains the same today as it did the beginning; and we continue to develop our software using the latest technologies to meet the ever changing ways people do business. An example of this would be that all of the key document management features of our Windows Client are now also available in the Web Client of the newest version, DocuWare 5.1c."
Rapid Expansion of Customer Base
With DocuWare Online for Enterprise, the company will be offering its first Cloud solution in the second half of this year. Administrative tasks are drastically reduced and the leasing model helps companies react more flexibly to organisational changes. Company founder Juergen Biffar sees a big chance in Cloud Computing to expand DocuWare's customer base. "Our Partners are generally focused on organisational consulting and configuration. By eliminating installation, they see tremendous possibilities for forging new deals more quickly."
