Award winning qualities of ECM system by windream GmbH from Bochum reconfirmed

May 21, 2015 | Bochum. – The Business Application Research Center (BARC) from Würzburg awarded a gold seal to the windream ECM system on the basis of the 2013 BARC ECM study, from which windream emerged as the winner. The seal reconfirms the outstanding qualities of the ECM system by windream GmbH from Bochum. The analysts of the BARC institute only award it to companies distinguishing themselves by excellent and especially innovative IT products. At present, the gold seal has only been awarded to two other companies besides windream.

windream – the triple award winner

In past years, the windream ECM system was the winner of three ECM studies conducted by the BARC institute. In earlier studies already, the BARC analysts praised the outstanding properties of the product by windream GmbH. This test result was not only reconfirmed in the 2013 study – it was even further improved, windream scoring results of one hundred percent in almost all test areas. The disciplines under evaluation included archiving, administration, document imports, meta-data and files, search operations, working with documents, and workflows. In all these disciplines, windream achieved the maximum rating. The scores in the categories architecture, integration and e-mail management were only just below that mark. 

The BARC analysts evaluated systems by German and international ECM providers. The BARC institute is the only institute in Germany independent of any manufacturer and, unlike other institutes, does not create its reports and evaluations on the basis of customers‘ and producers‘ orders, but on the basis of independent software tests. For further information on the details and results of the BARC study, feel free to contact windream GmbH.

With the gold seal, windream GmbH now received a reconfirmation of the outstanding qualities of the windream software.
