Cimsoft updates MediaDoc
Version 5 of this document and workflow management application can be used in 64 bits Linux servers.
The company located in Maia has developed MediaDoc in 1999, a document and workflow management software, and provided the improved version, MediaDoc 5, this month.
According to José Morgado, director of Cimsoft, this application can now be used in 64 bits Linux users.
MediaDoc was redesigned so that it would be able to module and integrate other applications via web services, also supporting postgreSQL, Oracle and SQLserver databases.
The solution also enables scalability, from small servers for micro-companies, to entrepreneurial servers.
The new modules can shape different document processes that are adjusted to the users’ needs, namely, administrative processes, processing registered correspondence, automation of the issuing of large amounts of registered letters and delivery notes.
The new digitalisation and classification modules enable the dematerialisation and classification of documents for processes, whether they are documents or emails. José Morgado stated that the new release will set the foundations for the product’s internationalisation process this year.
This solution has over 100 installations and almost 1000 users. MediaDoc has modules for the traditional working methods, such as back-office, front-office (via browser) and web services. At the same time, it has VPN secure remote access and backups on the server or remote system. The company’s director explains that the solution is currently implemented in several companies, from micro-companies and SMEs, to larger companies, such as the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation and Refer - Rede Ferroviária Nacional (Portuguese Railway Network).
This platform has general modules for the performance of collaborative work, such as Contacts, Billing and Agenda. There are also specific modules for several types of clients, such as Billing, Costs and drill down data Analyser.
INESC Porto was MediaDoc’s advisor between 2004 and 2006 in the conformity and quality domains. In 2005, Cimsoft started being supported by Agência de Inovação and ERDF (European Regional Development Fund) in order to improve this product.
