Security Is a Main Feature in DocuWare 5

DocuWare released DocuWare 5.x. A few examples of the many enhancements in this version are: the administrator is able to define functional rights to users, which allow specific access to menu functions inside the DocuWare program. In addition, the administrator can define access to specific file cabinets, and allow or deny Read/Write rights to specific users. For example, an HR manager receives Read/Write access to employee documents, but an employee would only receive read-only access to his own documents. The system can also be set to encrypt documents (whenever DocuWare is set) in High Security mode; passwords can only be reset by the individual users themselves, not the administrators.

 Another enhancement is that all data is automatically encrypted when sending or receiving it from a server. Communication is based on Windows or SSL-Security. Only the person with system administrator rights can set how the server/client communicates; therefore, they are the only one that can change it to a secure or non-secure communication setting.

 DocuWare is an integrated document management solution that can automate business processes by managing any type of document, regardless of format or source, in a central document pool (for example, paper records, letters, faxes, drawings, PC, and other electronic files, including e-mail). DocuWare supports all forms of electronic signatures. Integrated records management ensures that all access is secure, controlled, and logged.

 Using the Internet, the central document pool is available around the clock to any authorized user, no matter where they are located in the world. A wide range of customizable DocuWare add-on modules equip DocuWare for, among other things, automatic indexing, COLD applications, and enhanced workflow features. Other software applications are easily integrated with a set of standard tools. Numerous interfaces exist for ERP systems (including a certified SAP interface) and Groupware (like Exchange or Lotus Notes/Domino). DocuWare incorporates all components needed for Enterprise Content Management. Processes in every company can be automated and improved with DocuWare.

 DocuWare software is available in 13 languages.
