bitfarm Informationssysteme GmbH was founded in Siegen in 1998, at the time, solely as an IT system house. Around the year 2003 we started developing the bitfarm-Archiv Document Management System parallel to our system house activity. The reason was the observation that the market largely offered inappropriate and/or very expensive DMS solutions. We therefore set ourselves the task to develop a DMS and Archiving System that fulfils modern user demands, is scalable to the requirements of all sizes of businesses and is still affordable for smaller companies.

To meet our aspirations, we created a complex and user-friendly Archiving System from a combination of existing Open Source components and some components that were specially programmed by bitfarm GmbH. From our daily experiences in support and customer suggestions the system could be developed and improved further. The practical relevance of the software functions is - and always has been - one of the main factors in all productions at bitfarm.

In the mean time, bitfarm-Archiv Document Management has become a powerful Document Management and ECM System. Nevertheless it still remains licence fee free as well as very adaptable and future-proof due to its Open Source basis.

With the development of bitfarm-Archiv and the DMS introduction in companies from various industries and sizes, we at bitfarm GmbH gained ample experience in the fields of electronic archiving, document management, ECM, knowledge, information and output management and we dedicate this know-how to our customers. bitfarm GmbH therefore offers an extensive range for planning and organisation of archives from installation and customisation, process analysis and automation via training up to software maintenance and support.
