Company Profile

ecoDMS GmbH, together with applord GmbH and appecon GmbH, form the unique service partnership of applord Holding Europe GmbH. From the development of custom software solutions to providing standardised software applications and handling large IT projects, the renowned business group from Aachen combines a broad scope of services and solutions.

The foundations for ecoDMS were laid in 2004 with the planning and implementation of a software programme for digital incoming email processing of a major customer. Based on the many years of experience in the field of document archiving and workflow, applord GmbH successfully implemented this project and developed the ecoDMS Server. This ecoDMS Server today forms the foundation of the ecoDMS archiving software.

The overwhelming popularity and a constantly growing customer base initiated the founding of ecoDMS GmbH. As of October 1, 2014, all distribution rights of the ecoDMS software package of applord GmbH have been transferred to ecoDMS GmbH.

The Aachen software company has been offering archiving software for private users, small-to-medium-sized businesses and large corporations. Powerful and practice-oriented functions, state-of-the-art technologies, platform-independent components, user-friendly interface and fair pricing are already inspiring thousands of customers in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and other European countries. More than half of those are business customers of various sizes and from varying sectors of industry.

ecoDMS GmbH is renowned for its high degree of quality and service. Young, modern, and full of fervour, the company opens up new avenues in document archiving. A strong, motivated team is offering perfect all-round service. Sales, development and support: All under one roof.

What is the ecoDMS Archive?

Being a client-server system, ecoDMS fulfils all requirements of an revision-secure document management system. It makes switching from conventional archiving to modern, digital archiving convenient and is reasonably priced.

This cross-platform archiving system allows you to quickly scan, archive, manage and retrieve all your documents. The intelligent ecoDMS template designer recognises documents, fills in the necessary classification and saves the files automatically in the ecoDMS Archive. Searching for documents in ecoDMS is as easy as googling.

New Era of Archiving Systems

This component-based process server (ecoDMS Server) allows platform independence and high scalability of the entire archiving solution. The system's service-oriented architecture (SOA) ensures that the existing IT infrastructure can be aligned flexibly with the business requirements of a company. This allows individual companies to assign the necessary structures, configurations and permissions to the archiving processes.

The clever combination of mature OpenSource components, paired with professional in-house developments and an entirely new and contemporary sales model has opened new ways for "digitizing and archiving" on the software market. This model is a key distinguishing factor among the numerous competitors in the DMS sector.

Unique Sales Model

ecoDMS is distributed through the web. With just a few mouse clicks, customers can purchase licences and support in the ecoDMS online shop. The product is then sent directly via e-mail without incurring any further costs. Prior to purchasing, customers can get all necessary information at the ecoDMS website. All necessary sales, pricing and product information are available online. The manuals provide a detailed description of the individual installation steps, settings and functions. There are also free training videos available, giving the best possible introduction to ecoDMS. Moreover, customers can download and test the software with almost the all functions 30 days for free and without any obligation.

Using the internet as a sales channel and doing away with data carriers, postage and third party licences, has resulted in the sensational license price. Meanwhile the ecoDMS archive has thousands of users.
