History and Development

The roots of ecoDMS go back to the year 2004, when applord GmbH implemented a digital incoming email processing project for a large customer. Based on comprehensive experience in document management and workflow, applord developed ecoDMS Server - the base for today’s ecoDMS document management system.

On 1 October 2014, managing directors Michael Schmitz and Helge Lühmann founded ecoDMS GmbH in Aachen as part of the renowned applord Holding Europe. The distribution rights for the “ecoDMS” software package were successfully transferred to ecoDMS GmbH.

Today, the company has more than 20,000 business and private customers across Europe. In addition, ecoDMS GmbH has a large network of excellence consisting of approx. 1,400 IT system providers.
