DocuWare Group Extends Growth in First Half of 2015 as Demand for ECM Cloud Solutions Continues to Rise23 Jul, 2015
New Windsor NY, July 23, 2015 – The DocuWare Group continued to build on their 2015 first quarter’s outstanding growth of 25 percent – reaching 30 percent for the first half of the year. Their cloud business continues to play a role: by June 30th, 132 companies were already using the ECM specialist’s cloud solution which is nearly twice as many as at the end of 2014.
The DocuWare Group’s current numbers again confirm the software company’s role as a leading force in the ECM market. In the first half of 2015, revenue grew by 30 percent over the same period last year. European growth was particularly strong; the leader was France with a 52 percent increase in revenue.
Over 5,000 Using DocuWare Cloud
The software developer’s cloud offering - which contains true SaaS architecture - is resonating with users. By the end of 2014, a total of 3,486 users in 68 companies were working with DocuWare Cloud; by June 30, 2015, the number had grown to 132 companies with 5,171 users storing over 2.5 million documents online. This means DocuWare was able to increase the number of customers by 94 percent in the first half of this year. Of their new customers overall, 14 percent opted for the cloud system in the first six months. The goal of building a cloud customer base of 200 paying companies by the end of 2015 is therefore well within reach.

Sales for Intelligent Indexing – a web-based indexing service – rose in the first six months by 51 percent. More than six million documents had been automatically indexed with the help of this self-learning service by the end of June.
