Although I occasionally use other document managers, OpenText remains my favorite, as it does an excellent job of managing content and documents in a variety of scenarios. And also integration with the cloud is essential nowadays. The other tools don't integrate the interface …

ActiveDocs
There are not a lot of competitors to compare this product with, but ActiveDocs holds its own as a very useful software for the need. I recommend doing a demo to see how the process works, but it's rather streamlined and easy to create a template and produce a document from it.

OpenText
My team and I have benefited positively from the work of this platform. Our content and any data that is created during the project implementation process are securely stored in a safe storage space. Documents are arranged well to enhance faster identification during the time of reference. It provides cloud-based based backup support to minimize file losses. It is best suited to the electronic data management suite.

Usability
ActiveDocs
Very good usability overall. Any user can pick this up and run with it. HotDocs, the closest competitor, has similar end-user usability, but from a designer of templates perspective, ActiveDocs definitely has the edge in this regard. I would recommend this for any company that mass produces documents from templates as deliverables.

Performance
ActiveDocs
The software overall is very excellent. It responds quickly and produces documents well. The integration with systems makes data input easy. Questions can be designed to allow further expansion of template creation/customization. The rules section is very useful for complicated If/Than/Else style templates. Although experience and training help, the software is very user-friendly out of the box.

Support Rating
ActiveDocs
ActiveDocs can be a considerably complex product because your use cases can be potentially endless. In our experience, when we have come across a problem or issue with the product ActiveDoc's support has always responded to our queries within 24 hours. Support is only provided via email in 95% of cases. Each year your support and maintenance includes support hours. These are used when you contact support and your issue is not found to be a bug or problem with the product (completely fair and understandable). When we've identified or discovered bugs (mainly with the latest version of Word) it is patched by the next release. They typically release about 4-5 updates per year.

Microsoft SharePoint is a simpler alternative for OpenText eDOCS. It can be used for the same objectives, i.e. to share and manage content, search for information, and collaborate across business areas. Integration with other applications and platforms can be rather limited, in comparison to OpenText eDOCS, but the interface can be considered cleaner than the one of OpenText.
