Access to all information in one EDMS

Put an end to manual filing, document management, and unstructured file folders! Documents used to arrive at the company by mail, were then distributed to various departments, and filed in file folders. With a document management system, this process is automated and digitized – from scanning to archiving.

All information relevant to the user is found in the DMS and can be processed there – regardless of whether it is an invoice, offer, delivery bill, or e-mail. By seamlessly integrating third-party systems such as SAP, Microsoft 365, or Salesforce, you create a central hub for all information in your company and organization: d.velop documents.

  • Quick access to all information
  • Meet compliance requirements through audit-proof archiving
  • Seamlessly integrate third-party systems
  • Dissolve data silos: store and retrieve everything centrally
  • 0.68 Trees per year are printed by a single employee on average.
  • 345 EUR per year on average by each employee, at 6 cents per printed page.
  • 168 minutes a day are spent by employees in the accounting department filing paper documents.
