Koenig & Bauer

Individualized document management

ECM at the printing machines manufacturer Koenig & Bauer AG

In 1814, when Friedrich Koenig‘s cylinder printing machine printed the London “Times” newspaper using a steam engine for the first time ever, the machine age had only just begun in Germany. Three years later, Koenig and his companion Andreas Bauer founded the rapid press factory Koenig & Bauer in the Oberzell monastery situated near Würzburg. Since this time, Würzburg has been the home of the “Koenig & Bauer Aktiengesellschaft” (KBA), which nowadays – with a market share of 14 percent - counts amongst the three leading manufacturers of printing systems in the world. The enterprise employs 2,000 people at its Würzburg headquarters. Since 2003, about 700 of them have been working with the windream document management and archiving system now.

Key facts:

  • Individual modification of the windream retrieval application
  • Flexible access to archived documents
  • Easy handling
  • Seamless integration of document management and archiving functions
