Overall Satisfaction with DocuWare

Its scope has changed over the years. It's not used quite as much as it once was. It's used now to disseminate multiple resident documents to our external property management system. It's also used for internal workflows. Previously it stored all of our resident's docs as well as all of our check copies from Accounts Payable.
  • Good OCR
  • Easy to use web interface
  • Powerful scanning tools
  • Great document processing
  • OCR is serviceable but has trouble capturing certain documents info 100% of the time
  • Web interface can have slow down issues from time to time
  • Filing documents by resident (by type)
  • Barcode recognition
  • Positive impact on organizing our key documents. Easy to find resident documents
  • Able to track spending through our AP system and diving into the invoice details

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.

Using DocuWare
