Interview: A Glimpse into Product Development at DocuWare

DocuWare isn’t really known for producing cartoons. Yet falcons, jellyfish and other critters show up in our creative process, from the original idea til finished software. Here’s an interview with DocuWare-original Tobias Getz about his job as Product Manager and how he juggles working on three versions and critters at the same time...

How is DocuWare Built?

To learn more about the components and technologies which make up our software, take a look at the detail-rich System Architecture White Paper. A new edition was released in conjunction with DocuWare Version 6.9 and reveals what has changed within our latest update.

 

DocuWare Discontinues Silverlight

DocuWare is always looking for the newest technologies to make its products as user-friendly and innovative as possible. Some technologies might not make it for the long term – such as Microsoft Silverlight. In this instance, HTML 5 has prevailed. In 2014 DocuWare began switching its client from Silverlight to HTML 5, as final specifications for the new standards became clear. Gradually this transition is taking place in the last remaining Silverlight-based aspects of DocuWare Configuration.

 

Scanning Right Out of Favorite Software

If you work in accounting, this might sound familiar to you: every day, loads of invoices arrive that need to be quickly processed. Wouldn’t it be handy if documents could be scanned and captured directly in your accounting program? Even better, if the scanned invoice would launch an invoice authorization workflow or could be stored right away in a file cabinet – without ever having to open a new program window!

 

PoINT Jukebox Manager: Support Runs Out

DocuWare Version 6.8 will be the last version to support Jukebox Manager from the company PoINT. The reason is that jukeboxes which are currently in use can be accessed like a hard drive via the file system – which means, they don’t require any special integration software anymore.

 

Windows XP and Vista: No Longer Supported by DocuWare

It’s hard to believe, but some computers continue to run Windows XP, even though Microsoft discontinued support for it long ago. Even Windows Vista is spotted every now and then on workstations. Since Version 6.6, DocuWare also stopped offering support for Windows XP. And support for Windows Vista was discontinued since DocuWare Version 6.8.

But of course for all more current versions of Windows, you’ll be on the safe side with DocuWare for a long time to come – check this list to see which versions are covered.
