    Pros
    I like the ability to offer individuals the rights and permissions to do their job efficiently. The search capabilities are robust.
    Its easy to configure to suite almost any need we have. And the way it seamlessly integrates with the Windows environment is outstanding for our users.
    The Document Locator product stays up with technology and is simple to implement and utilize. Best of all their Customer and Tech support is fabulous.
    Cons
    Not compatible with iOS. No app available for use on ipads/iphones.
    Ve been administering my company’s Document Locator system for 8+ years. Never have I come up with a problem they couldn’t solve.
    As the software is so powerful it requires a decent amount of training to become proficient. Also the inability to link to the folders in the software is inconvenient at times.

    Excellent and fabulous

    Reviewed 4 years ago

    It is cost effective, mobility oriented, and adds to data management

    Pros

    The application is user friendly and as well being adaptive to users. It is an application that is handy and challenging to learn as an administrator

    Cons

    I have not really find any cons applicable to me as a user and an administrator. Except on the web tools, users that have folder permission on the repository, are not able to see it on the web.

    Implemented in Engineering, HR, Finance and IT departments in three companies 2 small, 1 large.

    Reviewed 4 years ago

    Very happy customers. Great pricing. Great support. Integration with forms tool (Perfect Forms). Integration with custom .NET software used to accelerate IT Architecture development. Integration with secure HR systems to manage employee hiring and on-boarding. Ease of use finding Engineering documents.

    Pros

    Document uses SQL Server as storage for documents instead of a file-share. This provides the ability to encrypt data while stored and retrieve on the desktop without un-encrypting. Thus making it very easy to use for handling sensitive HR and Finance records. Document Locator includes standard and custom workflows that include forms which are routed for approval in a variety of ways. As an engineering tool, Document Locator make SharePoint look like an old-fashioned file server with its ability to add meta-data to each document. Document Locator has a vibrant web interface but also includes access via the desktop app.

    Cons

    Not much. I have done many document management studies and Document Locator exceeds all the others for my list of requirements. Perhaps some of the icons used on the client could be modernized.

    Outlook integration is great for emails

    Reviewed 6 years ago
    Pros

    I used document locator with 1 of my previous job and started using it since then for personal use. The best feature we like about Document locator is the email management using my favorite software "outlook". It helps with a number of other features including PDF conversion, Document preview etc.

    Cons

    The interface is little bit sloppy and need to be worked upon.

    Excellent Customer Support

    Reviewed 5 years ago

    Customer representatives have a great relationship with the Public Service Commission of Wisconsin which makes to the support for this product great. Once again a product is only as good as its support team.

    Pros

    A software product is only as good as the support you can get from the product. This last weekend I was upgrading the Document Locator backend database from SQL Server 2014 to SQL Server 2016 SP1. I called Columbiasoft to let them know during the week what I was doing. In return, they emailed me steps to take when migrating to a new SQL Server failover cluster and gave me instructions on what to...

    Cons

    This is a hard one in that this product matches our business requirements. That said we use a lot of custom action steps and there are times I wish the documentation on customer action steps would be easier to understand.
