PROS / Backing up your documents involves one simple step.
CONS / It has an outdated interface, and many tools are clunky.
VERDICT / DocPoint Professional helps organize your documents and workflow expertly, but there is no mobile component and the interface is drab.
DocPoint Professional document management software (DMS) offers functionality beyond converting your paper files to electronic ones. This software helps you organize your digital and scanned paper files, tracks various versions of your documents, and manages your employees' workflow. You are also able to set your interface language to Arabic, Chinese, Hebrew, Spanish, French, Italian, German, Dutch or Russian, making it a good option for international companies.
As you save changes to your files, the program creates a new file while maintaining the old one to give you full version control. This DMS application also has a fast and unique back up process. Two windows appear and you drag your folder from one window to another; it's the fastest, easiest way to back up your files offered by any of the document management solutions on our list.
DocPoint integrations include Microsoft Office programs such as Word and Excel. This document control software also integrates with your email program and backs up your contacts. If you need to create a new file, you can build it from a template. DocPoint allows you to choose the program you want to use, which means you can insert the metadata before you've actually worked on the document.
There are a few drawbacks with this document management program. It is slow to install and requires additional software, like .NET and Sequel Server, to be in place before it will operate. It also has no mobile capability, so if you want a document on your phone, you have to email it to yourself. While its functionality is very up to date, its user interface is rather drab and dated.
DocPoint Professional comes with a detailed and helpful user guide. The company's website offers a FAQs section. Customer support representatives are available through email if you cannot find an answer to your questions.
DocPoint Professional offers a strong set of tools to help you organize and manage a paperless office. Once you get past the clumsy interface and learn how to use the program, DocPoint gives you some excellent resources for importing, scanning and organizing your files. In addition, workflow controls and program integrations make it easy for you to create and keep track of all of your company's important deadlines and projects.
