Altair Engineering, Inc.
Engineering firms and companies with needs for multiple disciplines of analysis capabilities on a regular basis will benefit from HyperWorks. Companies with short term engineering needs (less than 6 months) or who only need a particular analysis/simulation discipline may be better off using a consultant (who likely uses HyperWorks).

We currently have a scenario where we print 1,000 documents per month, one for each resident. Because of DocuWare's ability to process barcodes, we dump that pdf to DocuWare and it files it into each resident's account. We then run scripting to add each of those documents to our cloud-based property management software. Saves having to process one document at a time per resident.

  • No active directory integration, this doubles up user management.
  • No Outlook integration. Would be nice to be able to interact with Docuware from email.
  • No mobile application. We have many remote users that would benefit from this.

We use a third-party company to assist in the support process, and they have been great to work with. Quick turn around on issues and almost immediate communication concerning support tickets. They are more than willing to consult with our IT partners as well, which is a must for our business.

We actually moved from DocuWare to Plate IQ because Plate is restaurant specific and shares many item codes, SKU #'s, etc from major vendors. However, we continue to use DocuWare for other data management because it was so useful to us while we used it for AP.
