DocStar

It is well suited for billing service storage and retrieval. It ends the need to pay extra for a storage space. It also makes for easy cleanup of files on a yearly basis.

ECM -XD

ECM -XD is great when you are linking documents of different types and from different sources into a single centralized location. There is no limit to the amount of information that can be retained for a specific complaint, investigation, etc. so situations where documents obtained at different times and from different personnel need to be linked to a single file are ideal.ECM -XD is less ideal for situations in which individual file information is simple with low density, or requiring a high level of customization. The user interface is likely more intuitive for novice users through other software options

Pros

DocStar

  • Templates - By being able to create templates for each document type, it made organizing files much easier. It also made the titles similar in format, which also allows for better organization.
  • We were able to scan documents directly into docStar, which helped us eliminate extra steps. For example, if we were missing a page from a document, and we received it at a later time, we could scan just that page into docStar as opposed to scanning the entire document again.
  • The functionalities are straight forward, so it is not hard to use the docStar system.

ECM -XD

  • Great cloud integration of information. Saves a lot of space on network drives and eliminates need for local storage of critical documents.
  • Very good comprehensive repository of information. Documents of different format and file extensions are allowed for upload and easy to access.
  • Regulatory and auditory compliance. This platform facilitates documentation of customer feedback, and thus ensures GMP, ISO, and FDA compliance.

Cons

DocStar

  • Cost is an issue, pricey for what it's essentially glorified cloud storage.
  • No ability to lookup vehicles by stock number or phone number.

ECM -XD

  • Customization could be made easier. Often times we instead have blank unused information fields for individual complaint files.
  • Record display layout could be optimized. While very comprehensive, it could be difficult to find specific information.
  • Mobile compatibility. I haven't seen any support for mobile compatibility. ECM -XD is typically only accessed on laptop and desktop machines in our organization.

Customer support for ECM -XD has been very responsive and quick to resolve issues and answer inquiries. Help contact links aren't very visible within the platform, and mobile or tablet support doesn't look to be documented. Overall, support is great from a functional perspective but could be easier to find and use with improvements in layout and interface design.

Alternatives Considered

DocStar

A former employee of our company chose DocStar after much research and Q&A with the DocStar seller. I believe she truly put a lot of time/effort into choosing this system, but the end result is that it is not a good match for our company. After reviewing her notes, I believe she chose the system due to its ability to be customized through the template system

Return on Investment

DocStar

  • We have saved almost 10,000 dollars a year just in toner cost. We had to implement some up front cost for tablets and other computer aspects but the initial cost of this was about 3,000 to 4,000 dollars. docStar has saved us an instrumental amount of money and will so in the future as well.

ECM -XD

  • Large annual cost savings ($500K+) in hardware and storage space of complaint-related documentation by moving to cloud platform.
  • Significant time savings in information retrieval and audit preparation by centralizing information for multiple users to single repository.
  • Easier GMP, ISO, and FDA regulation compliance through comprehensive linkage of documentation and customer feedback timeline.
