Connect to SharePoint

Securely archive, index, search and apply workflow to any SharePoint document within DocuWare for smarter, integrated, compliant business automation.

Long-term revision-proof storage of documents

Revision-proof archiving: Two clicks are all it takes to save documents securely from SharePoint in DocuWare. You have the choice to copy or move the document or to keep a link in SharePoint

Microsoft SharePoint enables people to collaborate on numerous projects, publish information, search data and exchange ideas. This produces a flood of business documents for which legal regulations apply.

When archived in DocuWare, your documents are audit-proof. DocuWare provides:

  • Protection against manipulation. Documents are protected against unauthorized access by an extensive rights system.
  • Availability. Authorized employees can access their documents at any time.
  • Long-term storage. Store large quantities of documents as PDF or in their original format and automatically remove them after a defined retention period.
  • Compliance. Meet privacy requirements, auditing standards and more.
  • Improve performance. Outsource documents from SharePoint and reduce the load on the SharePoint Server.

Archive documents in DocuWare — directly from SharePoint

DocuWare integrates seamlessly into Microsoft SharePoint as its own Records Center, becoming part of the native SharePoint experience as a storage location for documents.

Employees don't have to leave SharePoint to store or search for documents, keeping them productive within their core application.

New business process opportunities

The moment a document is stored within DocuWare, a whole new digital workflow can initiate, complete with tamper-proof audit trail, email notifications, and more. This gives content created in SharePoint an opportunity to fulfill key processes outside of SharePoint — but with zero manual searching, emailing and routing.

DocuWare can also collect SharePoint and other documents into a secure, self-containing file cabinet for tax auditors and other service providers.
