New DocuWare Hub Enables Mobile Users to Route Content to DocuWare Storage
Enterprise content management (ECM) specialist DocuWare has expanded its business-app offerings with its new DocuWare Hub, which enables users to securely store documents from any other app into DocuWare and continue to process them at their smartphones.
Once the user has installed DocuWare Hub on their smartphone, the upload function lets them send documents from any app straight into a document-management system For instance, users who receive an invoice via email can immediately save it from the mail app into a DocuWare file cabinet or basket. If a file cabinet is chosen as the storage target, indexing can take place immediately in order to find the document later. Incoming invoices can then be entered into an invoice-authorization workflow; upon inspection and approval, payment can then be generated.
In order to connect DocuWare Hub with the full document-management system, DocuWare Client’s main menu provides a QR code with the user’s personal data (as is already the case with DocuWare’s PaperScan). After scanning the code with their smartphone, the device automatically detects all connection parameters.
The new business app can be used equally with DocuWare Cloud or an on-premise solution. To use DocuWare Hub, users need a smartphone of a more recent generation running at least Apple iOS 8.0, Android 4.0, or Windows 8.1.
DocuWare also markets PaperOrganizer, which enables smartphone to store and organize documents in, for example, Dropbox or Google Drive, and PaperScan, a mobile document scanner, which has been downloaded over 60,000 times..
