DocuWare's DocuWorld 2011 Premiers New Products & Trends
Newburgh NY (April 26, 2011) – DocuWare’s annual reseller conference, DocuWorld, was the official kick-off for their latest version release featuring their Web Client with much of the functionality contained in their Windows Client. Documents on demand are now a way of doing business and with these new products, anyone can have access to their information from any location and at any time.
Integrated Document Management In DocuWare 5.1c, Web Client now provides most of the key features of their Windows Client. In its development, DocuWare focused on functionality, performance and scalability while putting emphasis on user-friendliness and overall well-roundedness. The advantage: common workflow processes can be mirrored, making training easier 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. Baskets are now available with DocuWare Web Client. All documents contained in baskets can 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
In addition to enhancing existing clients, additional new clients were announced such as the iPhone Client and DocuWare Mobile. Enhanced clients include those for Windows Explorer as well as DocuWare CONNECT to SharePoint.
Another new product announced was 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. Then 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 – nothing needs to be installed locally.
Further Simplifying Daily Workflows
Features for optimizing work 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 and can then be easily shared with other users.
And last but not least...the system’s overall administration and installation were further simplified.
