AvePoint’s DocAve Software Case Study

Global 500 Financial Services Company


This case study of a Global 500 financial services company is based on a June 2016 survey of AvePoint’s DocAve Software customers by TechValidate, a 3rd-party research service. The profiled company asked to have their name blinded to protect their confidentiality.

“DocAve’s drill down functionality, as well as, incremental migration options were the most helpful during our migration. Being able to access the application front end from my desktop means I do not have to file paperwork and get sign-off to access the servers.”


The business challenges that led the profiled company to evaluate and ultimately select AvePoint’s DocAve Software:

  • Unable to preserve all metadata – including security settings, attributes, and properties – with full fidelity upon migration
  • Unable to allow users to continue working on source environment until the destination environment was ready
  • Unable to reorganize content upon migration
