witnessed an increase of 34%. And in the U.S. (which includes the Latin American market), revenues of US
$3.6 million were generated, which represented a 19% increase over 2003. Besides optimized sales processes
and intensified marketing activities, new DocuWare partners (ADP) in previously underdeveloped regions were
an important part of the success in the U.S.

potential customers about the financial and organizational benefits of a DMS system. DocuWare products are
designed so that they can be easily installed, configured and serviced -- the cornerstones for a speedier ROI.
Within the framework of Integrated Document Management, DocuWare will continue to cover all possible
aspects of document management, including Workflow Management. Requirements demanded by worldwide
directives -- such as those outlined in Basel II or Sarbanes-Oxley -- are fulfilled. To meet the security demands of
users, the DMS specialist is expanding its document management solutions in 2005 to incorporate all the benefits
provided with electronic signatures. Although DocuWare systems include highly refined technologies and broad
functionality, they remain quick to implement and successfully deploy in companies worldwide.

New version: DocuWare 4.6 Accelerate Your Workflow
Newburgh, NY February 4, 2004 - Announcing the newest version of DocuWare - with its many new features
and numerous detail refinements; it moves DocuWare to a new level - version 4.6! New features and
enhancements such as a form stamp to optimize workflow processes, while control functions supervise book
entries as well as filing of records totally automatically. The new version also supports the tablet PC - another
operational area of this integrated document management system.
Today, integrated document management systems (IDM) provide competitive edges, such as increased
productivity and a faster Time-to-Market, by offering more workflow functionalities to control processes within
an enterprise. Integrated document management enables an enterprise to manage documents automatically,
from all applications and processes, within a company and makes them available in a central document pool.
Document workflow made simple
At the end of 2002, DocuWare added CONTENT-FOLDER and extended the standard DocuWare solution
with a workflow function. This add-on module improves access and distribution of information that is needed
for daily work processes (see press release as of March 25, 2003). The new DocuWare release 4.6 together
with DocuWare CONTENT-FOLDER allows workflow optimization. For example, the stamp function in
DocuWare can now be extended by more than five form fields. Users can individually endorse the text of this
form stamp, e.g. with cost center codes. What is so special about this feature is that setting a stamp
automatically triggers follow-up steps and so manages the workflow. Retracing who did what and when with
the filed original document is possible at any time. In contrast to pure workflow solutions, handling is simple
as users can operate the system intuitively.
Book entry and filing guaranteed
New control functions eliminate errors in accounting and filing which enhances process security. The IDM
solution checks whether all records are booked in the ERP system while being filed at the same time. The
operation runs totally automatically via DocuWare ACTIVE IMPORT 3.
Signatures without a doubt
Meta Group research indicates that dropping notebook prices and the rapid development of wireless networks
will result in only 45 percent of all corporate users primarily using desktop PCs by 2006. They expect that over
40 percent of users will prefer working with a notebook or a tablet PC.
DocuWare 4.6 supports the tablet PC. Not only can annotations be made at any place, but documents can
also be signed manually. The process is as follows: setting the stamp for manual signature activates the tablet
PC stylus, the user signs the spot that has been clicked on the document. Afterwards the stamp frame and
further information such as the date can be added automatically. The signature guides the workflow by triggering
follow-up steps, for example: documents to be automatically filed, transactions to create an invoice or delivery
Additionally, DocuWare 4.6 stores biometric information such as pressing intensity or writing speed together
with the stamp. If at any point in time, a signature' authenticity is needed, these can be substantiated through
an analysis of biometric data.
