Overall Satisfaction with docStar

It is being used across the whole organization as a paperless solution. The two biggest pros to this that we have found as an organization is that it is has reduced the cost of paper/printing and toner in general and it has brought our technological understanding to the rest of our employees as well. We are implementing tablets and other processes to help the solution grow more efficiently throughout our organization. The other big pro to docStar is that there is the capability of annotations of notes as we are still wanting to keep accountability to the users so they can annotate notes on things such as order acknowledgements and other documents in docStar. docStar has helped our company effectively move further technologically and productively as well as efficiently with going paperless and still keeping the productivity and accountability we are wanting.
  • Annotations of any notes that we are wanting from an end user and they are saved right back to the program.
  • Approval and disapproval process for any documentation needing this such as accounting documentation.
  • Import and export of xml documents and emails have been helpful especially as we have a lot of mass imports and exports to our ERP system.
  • The interface for the network paths and the setup of the users is simplistic. We would like to be able to integrate with a lot more than Active Directory and other programs.
  • 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.
I don't think this is a real good solution for companies that are needing their information in a paperless way that needs to be critiqued all the time. This is a good situation for a company that can use it for all the documentation from their ERP system or other programs and still have accountability but only having to have the document approved or disapproved or critiqued once or twice.
