ecoDMS GmbH looks back on a successful fiscal year 2021 and provides first insights into innovations and plans for the new year 2022.
Aachen, in December 2021. The year has flown by quickly and Christmas and the turn of the year are already just around the corner. Looking back, 2021 was a thoroughly successful fiscal year for ecoDMS GmbH. Particular highlights were the publication of the new licensing model and the associated rolling releases for the ecoDMS document management system. In addition, ecoDMS has been able to win over more than 150 new resellers, of which nearly half have completed further training to become trained Qualified Premium Resellers.
The topics “digitalisation” and “online presence” have become even more important because the Corona pandemic continues to determine people’s lives in many parts. This is why the entire applord Group, of which ecoDMS GmbH is a part, has further expanded the existing online concept for consulting, presentation, training, and the maintenance of in-house software products. In doing so, the Aachen-based company relied on the use of modern augmented reality (AR) technologies with voice-controlled smart glasses.
With ecoDMS (burns), ecoDMS GmbH has broken new ground in terms of “digitisation and archiving” in 2021. The ecoDMS license model (burns) and the associated rolling releases have received a very positive response from customers. For the duration of the selected period, ecoDMS GmbH repeatedly provides users with new, free software updates. In contrast to the old licensing model, these can contain brand new features in addition to improvements, updates and bug fixes. The choice of the update period offers long-term planning security. Thousands of ecoDMS customers have purchased ecoDMS (burns) and/or upgraded the existing version to the latest release in 2021. The upward trend is continuing.
Two updates of the ecoDMS software, build 21.02 and 21.06, have already been released in the past few months. Brimming with intuitive features and a new, modern user interface, the software offers a host of optimisations that take document management to a new level. And the next update is already waiting to be released. For further development, ecoDMS GmbH relies on artificial intelligence. This AI technology will be continually integrated in ecoDMS. The next ecoDMS update already sports the first results. The exact release date will be announced shortly.
The Aachen-based company offered yet another highlight in 2021, providing the document management system for resellers as a hosted version in the data centre. This means that instances of the DMS software can be made available to end customers at the touch of a button. This solution is already being employed successfully by the first customers.
The headcount of the entire applord group has also increased. Over the course of the year, the number of employees increased by 15 per cent. In addition, ecoDMS has realigned the project business for medium-sized companies and launched an ecoWorkflow solution customised for this target group. ecoWorkflow enables you to automate all processes quickly and easily without programming knowledge. This modern workflow solution allows you to simply model processes graphically and to configure the associated user interfaces individually.
2021 has also been a turbulent year for the Aachen region, where ecoDMS GmbH is based. Besides Corona, a terrible flood disaster hit the region in the middle of the year. The aftermath of this disaster can still be felt today and will continue to affect people in the new year. The applord group has therefore donated €10,000 to the flood victims.
The Aachener company has big plans for 2022. In addition to new software releases of the ecoDMS document management system and the ecoMAILZ software for automatic e-mail archiving, several campaigns and surprises are in planning. The focus of further development is, among other things, artificial intelligence technology. The “cloud” topic will also be explored in greater depth for the software products. Further expansion is also planned in terms of “staff”. New apprenticeships for the employees of the future are on the agenda. Everything remains exciting!
In the digital world and the related directives concerning the storage of files, emails, documents and information, an electronic archive and the management of such data and documents is becoming increasingly important.
ecoDMS GmbH offers first-class software for archiving and managing documents and automating company processes. With particularly fair pricing models and user-friendly, customisable software applications, the company targets small, medium-sized and large corporate customers as well as private users.
The creation of ecoDMS began in 2004 with planning and implementing a software for digitally processing incoming emails for a large customer of applord GmbH. Based on its many years of experience in the areas of document archiving and workflow management, applord successfully implemented the project and developed ecoDMS Server. Today, this forms the basis of the document management system ecoDMS.
The large interest in the software and a steadily growing customer base led to the founding of ecoDMS GmbH. On 1 October 2014, managing directors Michael Schmitz and Helge Lühmann founded ecoDMS GmbH in Aachen as a new pillar of applord Holding Europe. applord GmbH transferred all distribution rights of the “ecoDMS” software package to ecoDMS GmbH. Already, the IT company has thousands of satisfied users all over Europe. More than half of those are business clients spanning all kinds of industries and company sizes.
