Selected Research Highlights


DocAve has allowed us to maintain a small group although service a higher amount of requests. It has also given us piece of mind having item-level back-up and restore (which we’ve used many times). We also now have an HA environment for our corporate Intranet as well which is nice as we’ve experienced DB crashes on this system before. We also don’t have to touch production when pushing up solution changes to our custom solutions.
