HighPoint™ core is Epiware

HighPoint™ began its roots as Epiware Open Source Document Management System, but now it's much - much more! We enhanced the open source code to create the HighPoint™ Project + Document Management System and added these following enhancements...

Folder Enhancements:
  • added Mass Capture - the ability to capture Windows folders and files right into the HighPoint™ Library automatically (scheduled captures). This feature also integrates with vFiler™ to automate the indexing of scanned documents, metadata and full content creating the ultimate document imaging solution (automated filing!)
  • added Folder Workflow template - the ability to create a workflow surrounding folders "on the fly." Folder Workflow enables users to automatically schedule email notifications to multiple users when it's their turn in the workflow process. User's can create tasks surrounding documents located in certain folders and send email alerts when they have a document or task in that folder that requires their attention.
File Enhancements:
  • added Append PDF - the ability to add page(s) to existing pdf images stored in the Library quickly.
  • added Send Email - the ability to click send, chose a HighPoint™ user from a pull down list and send an email with comments about the document and a path to the document.
  • added Document Workflow - the ability to create a workflow surrounding documents "on the fly." Document Workflow enables users to automatically schedule email notifications to multiple users when it's their turn in the workflow process. User's can pass documents back and forth reviewing and approving documents while getting email alerts when they have a document that requires their attention.
Search Enhancements:
  • added Folder Search - the ability to quickly search for a particular folder (i.e. Customer, Vendor, Employee, Case File, Patient File, Job Number, etc...)
  • added Notes Search in Index search - the ability to look for keywords that were saved in a document note.
  • added External Database Search - the ability to have a second database used for large capacity archiving and document retention. This external database feature eliminates some of the document workflow features enabling a large capacity database to have high response search rates.
  • added Full Content Searching by web group using Swishe - the ability to search for keywords and phrases within Microsoft Word, Excel and searchable PDF documents.
Administrator Enhancements:
  • added ability to Configure Desktop - added the ability to turn on or off the calendar, tasks, workflow, bulletin boards, latest files list or the entire My Desk Top.
  • added Retention Management with expire date as fixed or dynamic - the ability to schedule documents to be moved from the system to archive.
  • added Purge Expired Documents - the ability to purge documents from the Library that have predetermined expiration dates.
  • added Configure / Test Email - the ability to configure the system email and test.
  • added Manual Re-index web group - the ability for the administrator to manually re-index web groups individually.
  • added Export Web Group - the ability to export all documents from an entire web group. This is a great feature so you are never locked in, you have an exit strategy for the future.
Scheduled Enhancements:
  • added Schedule Re-indexing of all Web Groups - the ability to use Windows scheduler to schedule a time when all web groups are indexed.
  • added schedule Document Workflow Email Send - the ability to use Windows scheduler to schedule a time when workflow email alerts for all web groups are sent out.
  • added Scheduled Mass Capture - the ability to use Windows scheduler to schedule a time when documents are captured and added to all web groups.
