DocWise is a sophisticated component-based document management solution. It can store virtually any type of electronic file—Word and Excel documents, scanned images, emails, faxes, XML, ERM reports— as objects, with a predefined structure so that they can be retrieved quickly by multiple users.


  • Access documents anytime, anywhere.
  • Transform paper into digital images.
  • Capture, index, store, manage, distribute.

  • Build an image-based workflow.

Management Tools

  • Object Manager, the heart of the new product, indexes, stores and retrieves any electronic object. Object Manager defines storage and storage class rules, object types and hierarchy, indexing and search categories, users/groups, security and desktop applications.
  • Server Manager is the administrative tool to manage servers and components, add, remove, configure and monitor components, and schedule tasks.


Server Components

  • Object Server: manages electronic objects; the main component of DocWise, running in the Windows Server. Object Server is configurable, and creates an Audit Log file to track system activity. Object Server also includes a Task Scheduler for scheduling recurring system tasks or performing them on demand.

  • Storage Interfaces: control storage

Client Components

  • dwWeb Thin Client: browser-based, using Internet Explorer; search, retrieve, view, print
