Always up to date with the latest news, information and images from ecoDMS GmbH

Q4 2018 will see the release of the new version of the successful ecoDMS archiving solution. Now the company from Aachen is revealing first secrets. The focus of further developments is on the web-based interface of the software, as well as on the many new features such as the new filtering functions, the ability to add notes to PDF, an integrated icon collection and the enhanced template control. The new release also promises even more convenience for document archiving. ecoDMS is to announce the exact release date soon.

Brand New Web Client
"ecoDMS goes mobile". This is the motto of the new DMS version. A brand-new web client allows access to the document archive via web browser from a PC, smart phone or tablet. The user interface automatically adapts to the screen size, which replaces the current ecoDMS app. Accessing the archive thus has virtually no boundaries. The web client has virtually all functions of the desktop version. From the inbox for scanned documents and general archive access with upload and download functions to intelligent search functions including filter templates and version management and many other features, the ecoDMS web client is introducing a new era of document archiving.

Moreover, ecoDMS GmbH has included many user proposals in the development of the new version.

Integrated Icon Collection
Among others, the version 18 release includes an icon collection which can be used when setting up classification attributes. This allows the visual differentiation between document types, folders and statuses. The icons can be loaded easily from the Settings dialogue box and inserted in any colour.

New Time Bar
The new time bar allows the user to filter documents even more easily by specified time ranges. It enables documents from the current day, week or month to be loaded within seconds.

Enhanced Template Control
Creating classification templates for automatic document assignment and archiving has been made easier thanks to the enhanced template control. In no time the invoice total at the end of a document comprising one or more pages is calculated and displayed as a value within the classification. Moreover, new RegEx calls enable the automatic assignment of a folder based on specific text passages or bar codes. The new classification templates also save time and simplify the archiving process.

Commenting PDFs (PDF Annotator)
ecoDMS version 18 also has a new integrated PDF Annotator. It allows users to add their comments to archived PDF files. Adding comments creates a new version after saving, allowing the original to remain in tact. All changes can be tracked using version management.

Lifetime Licence Fee Guarantee
As the world's best value-for-money archiving system, ecoDMS is now entering the next round with version 18.XX. The company from Aachen will remain true to the extremely fair license model; and upgrading to the new version is not obligatory. With the current version 16.09 (eleanor) ecoDMS customers are already placing their trust in a powerful, cross-platform and audit-compliant archiving system with full functionality. ecoDMS GmbH will continue to support and maintain this version according to the lifecycle. Until the release of version 18, customers can purchase first licenses for Eleanor.

For the new Major release, however, all users require a new, fee-based license. When purchasing a first license for version 18, the new license fee will amount to 89 Euro incl. 19% VAT per simultaneous connection. At this point all users from the current version 16 will benefit from the lifetime license fee guarantee. Already with one version 16.09 (eleanor) license, the original license fee will remain the same if the software is upgraded to version 18. Therefore, existing customers need not be afraid of fee increases. Those who have not yet got a license for version 16 should purchase one as soon as possible. In the online shop of ecoDMS GmbH, licenses are easy to purchase.
