Anyone who wants to work with DocuWare needs nothing more than an internet-capable device running a standard browser. That means that document management can be used on any platform – no matter if it’s Mac or Windows OS – and ensures that it keeps pace with the rapid changes in IT devices. All of this is made possible through DocuWare’s modern and standards-based architecture. Its Web Client is developed around HTML5 technology and thereby supports all standard browsers. In rare cases, local applications are still needed, which are offered collectively as DocuWare Desktop Apps and can be administered centrally.
DocuWare works with open communication standards and utilizes HTTP/HTTPS between many components, mostly in conjunction with REST (Representational State Transfer). The use of this future-proof interface architecture for the communication between Windows programs, HTML5 clients, and native mobile apps is still completely unique in the ECM sector.
DocuWare’s mobile applications are both available for iOS and Android, thus running on all major platforms. For a DocuWare installation, the newest Windows versions are supported. In addition, all leading database server technologies such as MS SQL, MySQL, and Oracle are supported across a multitude of versions. And, last but not least, DocuWare isn’t only available as an on-premise solution. It can forgo a server installation altogether when running as DocuWare Cloud.
