docuteam context

docuteam context is a web-based archival information system, pioneering the use of the new metadata standard "Records in Contexts" (RiC).

The product combines extensive configuration options, providing great flexibility, with a coherent data structure based on RiC. A central focus is also placed on contemporary user experience and usability to facilitate efficient and effective work. Comprehensive import and export capabilities ensure seamless integration of docuteam context into existing system landscapes and workflows.

We continuously develop, review, and enhance docuteam context in collaboration with our archivists and customers.
