Comprehensive Document Management

Globodox document management software is the complete solution for document management. It lets you manage your files and folders in the speediest way possible, and then lets you find them with minimum efforts because of it’s search centric design. It lets you sort the information in many ways, and gives you much more control on who can see what and who can change things around, something that is very important for teamwork and collaboration.

  • Folders behave very similar to Windows Explorer folders. Create Folders and Sub-Folders to quickly categorize your documents. Attach simple text tags to every document. Tagging is a quick way of indexing. Search or group documents based on their tags.
  • Document Types allows you to use a more structured approach to organize your documents. Using Document Types, you can store specific indexing information with each document (for e.g. store Invoice Number, Invoice Date, Invoice Amount with each stored Invoice and store Sender Name, Date with each stored Letter).
    The main advantage of this approach is that detailed information about each type of added document can be captured by creating very specific data fields. Doing this also increases the number of ways you can search for documents.
  • Documents can be arranged in a Stack. Stacks can have their own indexing information. So, you can search for documents by searching for it’s stack’s indexing info. Stacks multiple documents which share the same indexing information.
  • You can create multiple links between related documents and stacks. This way you can easily jump from one document to another document or stack. For example you can link an invoice to a check or a letter to it’s reply.
  • With the annotation feature you can draw, highlight, stamp, write comments, etc. directly over an image. Redact tool, lets you hide portions of a document from specific users. You can choose to burn the annotations on the image, so they become permanent part of the image.
    Use built-in stamps or create your stamps to mark document approval etc. Each user can also create a stamp of her signature.
  • Create and retain multiple versions of the same document. You can easily access the older version of a document at any time. You can add Version Notes to remember the changes made for the version.
  • Do documents in your organization or department go through multiple revisions and reviews? Then you can make the edits and save the document in the Draft Mode as a minor version, until it is ready to be published in its next version. E.g. save the document as versions 1.1, 1.2, 1.3 etc. until ready to be published as version 2.0.
    This is available as an optional module for Globodox Standard and is included in Globodox Suite
  • When you edit a document, you can checkout that document so that other users are prevented from modifying the same document, till the time you check-in the document. When a document is checked out, other users will still be able to view the document but they will not be able to modify the document.
