Electronic Document Management Software

bitfarm-Archiv - the powerful Open Source EDMS

bitfarm-Archiv Document Management is an open source EDMS that is used as client-server software in the Windows environment. The software supports companies and institutions in the areas of digital archiving, electronic document management, enterprise content management (ECM), workflow and process management as well as contract and knowledge management. It is used in small and medium-sized enterprises of all industries as well as in institutions and public administration with up to 5000 connected users.

Economical electronic document management due to Open Source

Our electronic document management software provides a multitude of flexibly configurable components without incurring licensing costs. bitfarm-Archiv is therefore a cost-effective and economical alternative to similarly powerful proprietary document management systems.

The costs incurred by setting up the system in the company, employee training and support are already included in this calculation. IT budgets are generally limited, and many companies, institutions and administrations now rely on high-quality open source solutions.

bitfarm-Archiv versions

We offer bitfarm-Archiv EDMS in two versions. The GPL Edition is a freeware EDMS and designed for private users and smaller workgroups as well as developers. The Enterprise Edition with extended functionality is also free of license costs and available for demanding enterprise use. The information on this website, such as function descriptions and customer opinions, largely refers to the Enterprise Edition.
