DocuWare Wins BLI Summer 2010 “Pick” Award for Enterprise Document Management
Buyers Laboratory Inc. (BLI), the world’s leading independent evaluator of document imaging products and solutions, has announced its Summer 2010 “Pick” winners honoring outstanding document imaging software solutions. BLI’s prestigious “Pick” awards acknowledge the top-performing document imaging solutions evaluated in BLI's lab during the previous six months. DocuWare Enterprise, from DocuWare Corporation, has been named Outstanding Enterprise Document Management Solution by the editors at BLI.
“Document imaging solutions are proving to be the lifeblood of the industry,” noted BLI Managing Editor Daria Hoffman. “From the capture solutions that digitize and route hardcopies to the management software that helps customers retrieve files to the assessment and print management tools that enable a dealer to deliver managed print services, these solutions help resellers engage and retain customers in an environment where hardware alone has been a tough sell.”
DocuWare Delivers Class-Leading Document Management for the Enterprise
DocuWare Enterprise, tested in version 5, is an impressive document management system that can suit the needs of a wide range of organizations. The solution allows users to import documents, classify them, perform a full-text index for easy search and retrieval, and incorporate them into an organization’s digital workflow.
“The DocuWare platform is very full featured and sets the bar very high for what an integrated document management system should include,” said Jamie Bsales, senior product editor for solutions at BLI. “Just about any document type—whether scanned from hardcopy or imported electronically—can be stored in the system, and the platform’s workflow features allow companies to deploy custom workflows for any type of document or business process.”
Other strengths that helped DocuWare Enterprise earn the honor of “Outstanding Enterprise Document Management Solution” were its ease of use, scalability and compatibility, plus the unparalleled support and training DocuWare partners receive.
“We are honored that Buyers Lab has selected DocuWare as a ‘Pick’ award winner for Summer 2010,” said Greg Schloemer, president of DocuWare Corporation. “Our focus is on developing software solutions that help users automate their business processes so they can improve customer service, increase sales, reduce costs, and overall, strengthen their bottom line.”

Twice a year with its “Pick” awards, BLI gives special recognition to the hardware and software products that provided the most outstanding performances in BLI’s unique evaluations. For MFPs, printers, scanners, wide-format devices and digital duplicators, BLI’s awards stand alone in that they are based on a rigorous battery of lab tests that includes an extensive durability test, which uniquely qualifies BLI to assess reliability, which is a critical factor for buyers and IT directors.
Software solutions undergo an in-depth hands-on review that focuses on key attributes for a solution’s target market and compares how well the product stacks up against leading competitors. Pick winners rise above the competition in key areas such as value, feature set, ease of use, ease of administration, hardware compatibility, software integration, security and support.
Software solutions earn an overall rating based on a five-star scale, and “Pick” contenders are culled from those that earn the highest ratings. Consequently, a BLI “Pick” is a hard-earned award that buyers and IT directors can trust to better guide them in their acquisition decisions.
