Advantages of our DMS software


Up to 50% time saving

An effective DMS significantly reduces the time employees spend searching for documents. This can vary considerably depending on the size of the company and the complexity of the document structure. In some cases, companies could expect time savings of up to 50% or more.

Reduction of printing and storage costs

By digitizing and centrally managing documents, companies can make considerable savings on the costs of printing materials, paper and physical storage. Depending on the size of the company, this could mean savings of several thousand to several hundred thousand euros per year.


Increase ROI by up to 500%

The return on investment (ROI) of a DMS is influenced by a variety of factors, including savings through process automation, reduction of errors and downtime, and increased employee productivity. A typical ROI for a well-implemented DMS is often between 200% and 500% over a period of three to five years.


Increased productivity and customer satisfaction

Thanks to more efficient document management, employees can spend more time on value-adding tasks and process customer inquiries more quickly. This leads to an overall increase in productivity and customer satisfaction.

Up to 20% shorter idle times in the release process

Integrated alarm and notification functions ensure the timely and complete processing of documents. The time saving here is at least 20%.

Seamless traceability

The QM document management system enables complete traceability, so that documents that have already been deleted can also be searched for.


Version security

The version history of all documents is fully traceable, enabling centralized document management.


100% conformity to standards

Digital document management can be used within the framework of the following standards and guidelines and supports the processes mentioned therein: ISO 9001:2008, ISO 14001, ISO/TS 16949, FDA 21 CFR Part 11 and VDA.

Functions of our document management software


Web-based document management

Our document management system is web-based, allowing you to access all key functions from anywhere on any device.


In addition to freely definable workflows, the DMS also provides predefined workflows that you can start using immediately.

Clear version control

Our DMS software keeps a complete history of changes and thus creates revision security.

Management of all documents

Within the document management system, they are able to add documents from any source and store them centrally.

All relevant tools and DMS functions at a glance

With the help of our web-based document management program, you have all the important tools you need to set up and maintain a central document archive. Access to shared documents is via a browser app that is intuitive to use. This ensures optimal document management and you no longer need paper documents.

Standards-compliant workflows


The document management software controls the entire document life cycle in the same way as the audit trail. The workflows range from creation, approval and distribution to revision control. Changes and user access are recorded centrally. The DMS also supports you in complying with standards such as IATF 16949, ISO 9001, ISO 13485 or VDA.


Changes at a glance at any time

With version control, you always have an overview of which document was changed when and how and which other applicable documents are affected by these changes. It also records who has read which document. This means you always have an overview of the full scope of all changes.

Version control also offers different, definable workflows for enforcing processes and for change management in qualitative processes, production processes or other documents.

Complete document control and management


All documents within our DMS solution are stored electronically, registered, versioned and archived as required. Freely definable features and categories ensure that documents can be sorted, grouped and filtered according to individual criteria.

A free-text search finds any information, even if it is not known in which areas or files this information was stored.

What is a document management system?


A document management system (DMS) is software for managing electronic documents. The aim of this software is to archive documents such as delivery bills, invoices and emails in order to make them accessible company-wide and thus create a suitable overview. With a DMS, documents are recorded electronically and stored centrally in a database. This simplifies and better structures business processes.

How does document management software work?

A document management system (DMS) in the cloud works in a similar way to a traditional DMS, but has the added benefit of being accessible via the internet and hosted by a cloud provider such as Amazon Web Services (AWS).

You can find out how a DMS in the cloud typically works and what functions it can offer here:

Hosting on AWS and cloud access: the DMS is hosted on AWS’s servers, which enables scalability, reliability and a wide range of cloud services. Users can access the DMS from anywhere in the world via the web, as long as they have an internet connection and the required access permissions.

Active Directory integration: Integration with Active Directory allows users to use their existing credentials to log in to the DMS. This simplifies user management and ensures consistent authentication and authorization for all enterprise applications.

Highest security standards: A DMS in the cloud hosted on AWS meets the highest security standards. This includes encryption of data at rest and in transit, document-level access controls, regular security audits and checks, and adherence to industry-specific compliance requirements.

Data import and export: The DMS allows users to import data from various sources, e.g. from SharePoint, local file systems or other DMS systems. This facilitates the transition to the new DMS and enables a seamless transition to new workflows.

Additional functions: In addition to the basic document management functions, a DMS in the cloud offers a wide range of other functions, including document versioning, automated workflows, search and metadata management, real-time collaboration, mobile apps for access on the move and much more.

Who is DMS software suitable for?

A document management system (DMS) is suitable for a wide range of organizations and businesses, regardless of their size or industry. Here are some examples of who a DMS can be particularly useful for:

Businesses of all sizes: from small start-ups to large corporations, businesses of all sizes can benefit from a DMS. A DMS helps to organize, store and share documents efficiently, whether they are internal records, customer information, contracts or compliance documents.

Industries with high compliance requirements: Organizations in industries such as healthcare, financial services, legal and government often have strict compliance requirements regarding document management. A DMS can help ensure compliance, improve the security of sensitive information and facilitate auditability.

Organizations with distributed teams or locations: For organizations with distributed teams, remote workers or multiple locations, a DMS is especially valuable because it enables collaboration and access to documents from anywhere. Employees can work together on documents without having to worry about the physical availability of paper documents.

Organizations with a high volume of documents: Organizations that process large volumes of documents, such as insurance companies, property management companies, manufacturing companies or educational institutions, can benefit from a DMS to keep track of their documents, reduce search times and ensure efficient workflows.

Organizations looking to increase efficiency: Any organization looking to increase productivity, reduce errors and work more efficiently can benefit from a DMS. By automating processes, versioning documents and providing access permissions, companies can optimize their workflows and reduce the workload of their employees.

What is the aim of document management software?

A DMS helps you to improve the organization and coordination of documents in your company. This increases control within the company and allows you to maintain an overview of all important documents.

A DMS offers you time and cost savings, more data security and protection for your company.
