ColumbiaSoft makes it easier for companies to access files online with new updates in its document management system
Document Locator version 7 includes a new WebTools interface for online document management that is touch-friendly and easy to use.
Portland, Ore. – Aug 12, 2014 - ColumbiaSoft announced major updates to its industry-leading document management system today, incorporating improvements for online document management plus additional features in its Document Locator version 7 software.
“Version 7.0 is a major release that gives customers the versatility to work with documents using any browser or device – computer, tablet, or smartphone,” said ColumbiaSoft President, Richard Day. “I’m also very excited that we can now offer Document Locator as a hosted option that really makes getting started quite easy.”
The newly-designed WebTools for Document Locator is a companion to the desktop software that is built into Windows Explorer and that people use to manage files. In version 7, WebTools is entirely re-engineered using HTML 5 technology. It has a new look and feel that is more intuitive to use and is touch-screen friendly. Speed and performance have also been enhanced, and a new “favorites” selector allows people to quickly build a list of everyday files. The system is designed to work on all major browsers, including Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox, and Safari.
Other improvements in version 7 include a new Document Reminders function in the desktop edition. People can set reminders on files that require attention later. Also included is an updated integration with Autodesk AutoCAD that supports 64-bit versions of the engineering design software and incudes a full range of built-in menu commands. Improvements in scanning, security, active directory replication, and reporting, are also included in the release.
Upgrades for Document Locator version 7 are available to existing customers now. All ColumbiaSoft upgrades are provided to customers on support and maintenance at no additional cost.
