Buyers Lab Honors Drivve | DM with Winter 2012 “Pick” Award in Document Management

Winter 2012

January 12, 2012

Hackensack, NJ – Buyers Laboratory LLC (BLI), the world’s leading independent evaluator of document imaging hardware and software, today announced its Winter 2012 “Pick” awards honoring the top-performing solutions evaluated in BLI's lab during the previous six months. Drivve | DM 2.4 was named “Outstanding SMB Document Management Solution” by the editors of BLI. 
“While the steady migration from paper to electronic documents has been a boon to office productivity, digitizing documents in and of itself does not alleviate the burden of information overload. In fact, it can exacerbate it,” noted Jamie Bsales, BLI’s senior product editor for solutions. “Moving beyond capture, knowledge workers need a robust document management system to effectively access, edit, share, process and archive information. That’s where Drivve | DM excels.”
Drivve | DM is a multi-user document management system (DMS) designed to enable small and mid-size businesses to organize, manage and collaborate on electronic documents captured via a scanner or created by a variety of applications. With an intuitive interface that was specifically designed to follow the look and feel of iTunes, end users can begin using Drivve | DM without onerous training sessions typically required for DMS platforms, and the solution is so easy to administer that it can be used by an organization that does not have an IT manager. In fact, the available software-as-a-service “cloud” version requires no on-site server installation at all.
Beyond its ease of deployment and use, the platform offers a number of attractive document/content management features, including a Workflow Management engine that allows users to customize processes, assign tasks to specific employees, and track the status of assignments. And as a browser-based application, the solution allows users to access files from any Windows or Mac PC, as well as from an iPhone or iPad.
“We are delighted that Buyers Lab has selected Drivve | DM as a ‘Pick’ award winner for Winter 2012,” said Peter Turnbull, executive vice president, sales and marketing, at Drivve. “Not only is this award testament to the strength of our document management capabilities, but to our continued focus on design excellence through the most intuitive interface and mobile apps on the market. With Drivve | DM at the heart of our EcoSystem, Drivve is best placed to address both in-house and cloud-based document management requirements for businesses and individuals in 2012.”
