Always up-to-date! The latest reports on ecoDMS GmbH

2017 is the year of "secure and legally compliant archiving of emails, files and documents". In the digital world and the related directives concerning the storage of files, emails, documents and information, an electronic archive is becoming increasingly important. ecoDMS GmbH is offering first-class archiving software for companies and private persons at extremely fair conditions.

ecoDMS Document Archive

Being the lowest priced archiving system in the world, ecoDMS Archive is the standard for cross-platform, long-term and revision-compliant document archiving. The sixth generation of the successful DMS solution is called "ecoDMS version 16.09 (eleanor)" and has been available since September 2016 at a one-time licence price of 69 Euro per simultaneous connection.

ecoDMS Archive is a modern, cross-platform client-server system for Windows, Ubuntu, Debian, MacOS, Raspbian and Docker including Support for NAS devices from QNAP and Synology. For Android and iOS, an app is also available.

ecoDMS is used for database-assisted archiving of electronic documents. Paper and digital documents can be scanned, archived, managed and retrieved with ecoDMS using a central document archive. With just a few mouse-clicks, the documents are archived according to auditing standards, automatically full-text-indexed and, if required, also categorised without requiring user interaction. Intelligent document recognition automatically determines document affiliation and stores the files with the matching classification for the specified users.

The document archive is easy to access within seconds via desktop client, smart phone, tablet or web interface. State-of-the-art search functions make searching for documents as easy as googling. The software is quick to install and easy to operate.

All data is securely stored in containers and a database at the customer's premises and not on external unknown servers, at ecoDMS GmbH, or on a file system, where they can easily be manipulated.

ecoDMS One

ecoDMS One is a low-cost solution of the archiving system which ecoDMS GmbH offers specifically for corporate customers. This modern full-service package comprises ecoDMS licenses (Major and Minor releases), unlimited API connects and a customised support contingent for each customer during the entire service period. This offers business customers of the ecoDMS archiving solution guaranteed planning security.

ecoMAILZ E-Mail Archive

As of summer 2017, ecoDMS will be offering ecoMAILZ, a new, standalone software for automatic and legally compliant email archiving. With the introduction of ecoMAILZ, users can archive all new and existing emails including attachments securely and directly from the email server. The user can specify the starting date for archiving emails.

In order to fulfil the requirements of email archiving and simultaneously exclude emails from the archive that are not subject to archiving requirements, ecoMAILZ works with a two-step archiving concept. During the archiving process, each message receives a status. In combination with a configurable examination period, users can manage the current archiving status in the Status dialogue box.

The ecoMAILZ container storage system offers the best possible security for storing, backing up and restoring all archived emails. A modern "Responsive Design" allows access to the email archive via web browser from the PC, smart phone or tablet. The archived emails can be retrieved quickly via the web client using full-text search. The software also contains a plugin to connect ecoMAILZ and the ecoDMS Archive.

The licence fee for ecoMAILZ is a mere 49 Euro per user. A user can archive and use several email accounts.

The release of ecoMAILZ is planned for summer 2017. ecoDMS will announce the exact release date soon.


The ecoDMS API Rest Service provides an interface to the ecoDMS Server and enables access to the basic DMS server functions. For example, you can programmatically call the "archiving", "classification" or "download" functions. The individual functions are called via the REST web services. Programmers can use this interface to connect third-party systems to the "ecoDMS Archive" software and to create customised function calls. To use the API, you require API connects. API connects are valid for an unlimited period for the associated ecoDMS version and can be purchased as required. The fee for the API is due only once and not monthly. API connects are not required for the general operation of the archiving software.
