Better Together: eDOCS and SharePoint

eDOCS and SharePoint.

What do all of these have in common? They are better together.

Often times, we have experienced use cases where users of business applications are creating, editing, and uploading content to different repositories. In some cases, they use SharePoint as an extranet for client or external sharing. Or they are using SharePoint for internal collaboration in conjunction with using eDOCS as their main repository. You can already see how any of these use cases can get complicated, and we believe that eDOCS and SharePoint are better together, rather than used as separate systems.

There are ways to get the best of both worlds with regard to using both eDOCS and SharePoint. First, you can integrate the systems together. There are a couple benefits that come along with integration. To begin, internal collaboration is much easier if you integrate your eDOCS and SharePoint systems together. Our Fusion Content Integration solution can surface your eDOCS repository in SharePoint for easy access to content that lives in eDOCS. Our Fusion solution also enables a federated search between repositories which will save users time fishing through documents.

Another way to get the best of both worlds is to synchronize the content that is created or uploaded within eDOCS and SharePoint. Synchronization can help in various different ways like keeping eDOCS as the central repository while working and collaborating in SharePoint, or publishing out the most recent version of client documents from eDOCS into a SharePoint client site. Marrying these two systems will give users the ability to ensure client documents are correct and that governance initiatives are followed. Our Echo Content Synchronization tool can help you provide users the ability to share, collaborate, or work in the environment of their choice. It will also keep a competitive advantage among clients who want access to documentation.

SeeUnity’s Echo Content Synchronization and Fusion Content Integration solutions have been successful amongst firms with these use cases. They are market leading solutions for synchronizing and integrating eDOCS with SharePoint (and many other systems.)

For more on how to best implement synchronization between systems, read our whitepaper, Navigating the Hurdles of Synchronization. Also, our CTO, Dan Hunsinger, was featured in ILTA’s Potpourri where he discusses a popular use case for synchronization within law firms. You can read that here.
