DocuWare Web Client: New Era of Document Management
DocuWare, an integrated document management (IDM) solution provider, has announced a revolutionary Web based document management product: DocuWare Web Client. Functionality and performance that had previously only been possible for users working with Windows Clients is now available to users at any location. User-friendly Web 2.0 technology is the foundation of the new DocuWare Web Client, which allows users to quickly access a central document pool, without the need to install additional software or plug-ins on their local PC.
Whether it’s scanned documents, e-mail, PDFs, Microsoft Office files or even CAD drawings – the new DocuWare Web Client provides quick access through a Web browser to any kind of archived document, from anywhere in the world. If product information, a price list, technical documentation or a contract is needed, all of this data can be searched, displayed, downloaded, stored and edited via the Internet. The Web Client even makes it easy to check the status of an order or shipment from anywhere, at any time.
Even automatic workflow processes go uninterrupted with the help of the Internet. Task lists are centrally configured for a workflow and assigned to specific users. Employees working remotely are then seamlessly integrated into any process. Invoices can be checked from anywhere in the world and even authorized with an electronic stamp.
Part of Standard Package
The Web Client is now available as a standard part of a DocuWare system. It provides an easy way for all users – from a small business to an international enterprise – to benefit from Web based document management, without additional maintenance costs or fees.
No Effort, No Costs
Since there is no need to install a Client program on a local PC, maintenance costs do not apply. Users now enjoy a high level of functionality and performance that had previously only been available in Windows applications. The DocuWare Web Client is easily set up on a Server with the help of Wizards – there’s no need for any special technical know-how. Configurations can also be customized, for example, to reflect a desired look and feel, required features and access rights to specific file cabinets and dialogs.
DocuWare’s President of Product and Finance, Jürgen Biffar, emphasizes the product’s revolutionary usability. “In developing the new DocuWare Web Client, we remained true to our philosophy of ‘simple installation, simple administration and simple usability.’ Even mid-sized companies can easily allow external employees, vendors and customers to access the central document pool – without additional costs."
Access to a configuration is possible with a straight login or via Single Sign-On (where the Windows authentication is automatically transferred to the Web Client). Upon login, a user can immediately use the intuitively structured store and search features. Select lists, familiar search parameters and fulltext search are available to support the user. All file formats can be displayed and printed without having to install a special Browser plug-in. The highest security requirements are met since the DocuWare Web Client uses all the security mechanisms of the DocuWare system.
