Denver DevCamp: Cloud

We are attending Microsoft’s “Denver DevCamp: Cloud” here in Denver. Getting a better idea of whether Azure Cloud Services are the right move for my web site and hosting customers. Been watching Azure’s evolution over the last 6 or 7 years. Also, I would like to thank our instructor, David Giard, for making it out all the way from Illinois.

DocuWare to do away with existing SOAP services in 6.8

DocuWare plans to deprecate existing web services (and all GAPI support on which the current SOAP web services are based) in their version 6.8. No date for the release of version 6.8 as of yet, but would predict it would be out 4th quarter 2015 or 1st quarter 2016. So if you have existing applications based on DocuWare Web Services, it is time to migrate to Docuware’s REST Web Services that were released with DocuWare version 6.1. Fore-warned is Fore-armed.

DocuWare releases version 6.7

DocuWare 6.7 has now been released.

Improving the user experience remains a top focus for DocuWare. This means the system can be introduced with little training at a customer’s and user acceptance is immediate. For example, the lazy loading process in Windows Explorer Client means that folders and documents are displayed more quickly. Only a portion of a document is loaded to begin with; the remainder can be added if needed. This process minimizes a user‘s wait time and helps ensure higher satisfaction.

Other Highlights of DocuWare Version 6.7:

  • Search through multiple file cabinets in Web Client
  • Viewer with integrated index dialog as new display option
  • Capture index data from document with one click
  • Performance improvement when storing with Connect to Outlook
  • Email notifications with attached document in Workflow Manager
  • Improved user interface for Workflow Designer
  • Import of Request containers
  • Improved Scan quality for PaperScan App
  • Mobile Apps can be connected via QR-code with DocuWare system

In addition, with Connect to Ricoh Version 2 there’s a new module for connecting over 250 types of Ricoh and comparable multi-function units. The configuration is handled centrally within DocuWare Configuration; even the installation on the devices can be managed directly from there. Filing with the scanner is made extra easy with select lists that appear right on the device’s display.

DocuWare releases version 6.6

New Windsor NY, – October 20, 2014 – DocuWare, a global leader in Document Management, has released the newest version of its document management system, Version 6.6. This web-based solution now includes a number of improvements in areas of workflow management and email program integration.

With Version 6.6, the Windows Explorer Client App, Connect to Outlook module and Workflow Manager were retooled and enhanced with a variety of helpful features. Early 2014, DocuWare released Version 6.5 which featured a new design – the intuitive interface made it easier for users to tackle routine tasks with a totally web-based document management system.

The Windows Explorer Client App offers document management within the familiar folder structure of Windows Explorer mirroring storage of documents on a server network drive. Users can now either store an invoice by clicking down into the folder of choice or simply move a document by drag & drop into the central document pool – the path of the target folder will automatically be used as one of the index terms for the document saving on manual entry. Direct storage in an electronic archive, such as an A/P invoice generated by ERP software, as well as any editing of documents, is as easy and familiar as working with Windows Explorer.

The interface of the Connect to Outlook module was also updated to reflect the new DocuWare design and made more user-friendly – this means that email can be processed even more quickly. For example, access to store/search configurations can be accessed directly out of Connect to Outlook. With Connect to Mail in Version 6.6, email from Google Mail may be optionally stored in original EML format or as a PDF (archiving in EML speeds up the storage process).

With DocuWare Workflow Manager, detailed rules can be configured for guiding document-based business processes. This means that tasks can be assigned to employees or departments, measures can be incorporated for employee vacations/absences, and all processes can be closely monitored. In the new version, authorization processes (such as approving an invoice payment) can be handled faster through more efficient electronic stamping of multiple documents. The most urgent tasks can be highlighted in red for quick review and it is now possible to integrate document content stored in DocuWare as well as related task lists to another applications.

Denver Dev Day was fantastic!

Denver Dev Day was held on June 14th this year at Microsoft Offices in the Denver Technology Center. Got to see the new SignalR technology and see how it can be utilized with Reactive Extensions. Also got to look at new client side technologies for building Javascript applications using AngularJS. And finally, got a look at Microsoft’s TypeScript superscripting language. Thanks to Jerry Nixon and Ely Lucas for their help in putting the event together. Also, I would like to thank one of our instructors, Jim Wooley, for making it out all the way from Atlanta.
