SAP Certifies DocuWare 5 for SAP NetWeaver Pure Connectivity

DocuWare 5 fulfills all the archiving requirements of the SAP ERP solution, which is why it was recently certified by SAP as 'Interface Software for SAP NetWeaver '.

The DMS specialist has been one of SAP's software partners for many years. The first time the seamless integration of DocuWare's document management system with the SAP ERP solution was certified, was in 2001. SAP recently put DocuWare 5 and its module CONNECT to SAP under the microscope again. The most current software package of the DMS specialist passed a series of standardised tests to receive its SAP certification. DocuWare CONNECT to SAP is an interface to DocuWare 5 based on the Microsoft..NET technology. It is designed to enhance SAP NetWeaver solutions with features to electronically file documents and data via the SAP ArchiveLink interface.

For example, incoming/outgoing documents, print lists, SAP archive files as well as PC files (such as Microsoft Word or Excel files) can be directly stored out of SAP systems into a central document pool managed by DocuWare. With the integration, documents can be retrieved with a click of a button right out of the ERP solution - users never have to leave their familiar interface. Business processes speed up. DocuWare 5 offers the option to search, view and print documents outside the SAP system as well.

The functionality of three components - HTTP Content Server, Barcode BAPI and OLE-Frontend - was certified. DocuWare President, Jrgen Biffar, feels his company's strategy has been affirmed: "We base the development of our solutions on the newest technology, which definitely simplifies their integration within other applications. The certification of our product as 'Interface Software for SAP NetWeaver' will help us build on our current success in the SAP market. With an extensive ERP system like SAP's, certification as an archiving solution is an important requirement for many customers making a DMS choice."
