More legal certainty

Another function concerns legal compliance. Users cannot delete archived files, automatic versioning is generated in the archive and archiving to legally compliant media is supported.

Document Lifecycle

The lifecycle of a document (e.g. order) is normally only a few days to a few weeks.
More than 85% of stored documents are older than six months and are rarely or never needed again. Users are allowed to delete files, but they don’t. Some files may not be deleted for legal reasons and yet this happens every day.
