ecoDMS GmbH from Aachen has released further installation packages for the archiving system ecoDMS version 18.09 (apu). Apart from Windows, users can now install the latest Major release under the Linux distributions Ubuntu and Debian and on NAS devices from Synology and QNAP. The release of MacOS packages is also planned for 2018. The exact release date is, however, not yet clear.

The technical structure of the entire document management system allows cross-platform installation on the supported operating systems. ecoDMS version 18.09 on Linux runs under LTS Ubuntu 18.04 and LTS Debian Stretch. It also runs under Windows 10, Windows Server 2012R2 and 2016. ecoDMS Server can also be installed on an NAS from QNAP and Synology. ecoDMS supports those device types which allow container virtualization via "Docker".

The current installation manual describes the installation and upgrade steps. A free download of all manuals in PDF format is available at

For first installations (no upgrade), the functions can be tested for free trial period of 30 days with the trial edition. For private users ecoDMS is available for free in the Free4Three Edition. The packages of the trial, Free4Three and full editions are identical. It is important to note that the trial period automatically ends when you load a backup. Customers already using an earlier version of ecoDMS and wanting to test the new Major release, are recommended to install the new version on a separate test machine. A license for the full version is available in the online shop for a one-time fee of 89 Euro incl. 19% VAT at and at all official ecoDMS resellers.

Those who decide to purchase ecoDMS get a professional archiving system for scanning, archiving, managing and retrieving all documents and data.

All documents can be archived, automatically full-text indexed and, if required, classified with a few mouse-clicks without requiring your interaction.

ecoDMS uses intelligent template recognition to automatically determine document affiliation and stores the files in the correct place and for the specified users.

The archive can be accessed from any platform and location via desktop or web client. Integrated text recognition and numerous search functions make searching for documents as easy as googling. The entire system is quick to install and easy to operate.

ecoDMS securely saves all data in containers and a database. No information is stored on third party servers, at ecoDMS GmbH, or on the file system, where it would be easy to manipulate. The whole system is at your installation location.

The software complies with legal and auditing requirements and includes a professional backup system.
