Document Management

Webforum document management is simple to use, yet packed with functionality

An important part of most projects and other forms of collaboration are the shared documents, images and other files such as drawings. In the Webforum document management module you have all the information organised how you need it and you can ensure that everyone gets access to what they need to accomplish their tasks.

Documents can of course also be read from a smartphone or tablet giving access while away from the office. All changes to documents are saved in real time with full version control and history. Using the edit online plug-in, documents are locked for changes and can only be read by other users. This makes the document archive an effective tool and not only a file-sharing site.. This makes the document archive an active workspace and not only an archive site.

Please try out for yourself how working with documents in Webforum compares to other web services, you will definitely notice the difference!
