Pros
How secure our files are. Both security and dynamic version management are superb features.
Fantastic for the Legal Sector for DMS, HYPER secure and great customer service on issues.
We've used them for 10+ years and haven't had many complaints with them at all. The best thing about it is they continually improve and produce better and better Intergrations with microsoft.
Cons
3 or 4 times each year we need to update the app on our computers and its always a little scary and we all hate doing it.
We have about 40 users and imported documents from another document management service. It was much much slower to search and the way it searches was really bad.
Sometimes a glitch happens and we need to get technical support, but then again, sometimes it is just operator error. Either way, they are helpful and get to the root of the problem.

NetDocuments - Great Cloud based DMS

Reviewed 3 years ago

Almost always positive. The search, storage and applications work. When they don't the support staff is usually friendly and knowledgeable

Pros

The whole package exists in the cloud. It just works. Indexing Works. Importing Works. User Management Works. Very little can go wrong as they handle the infrastructure.

Cons

When it does go wrong it can be time consuming to get it fixed. Often the issue requires a patch to their software which can take some time to get and implement from them

Could be better

Reviewed 3 months ago

over all it works, but it would be better if there were more short cuts, (ie drag and drop documents from ND to an email)

Pros

the best thing about net docs is that it is on the cloud.

Cons

Our files in NetDocs are set up by folder structure. When our cases grow, it can get very confusing to see where documents are saved. I find myself having to keep clicking into subfolders. if there are documents in different subfolders but i want to add one document from one subfolder and a document from a different subfolder into an email, i am unable to to do that. when searching for a client file, the matter will not auto-populate if even if you type in the first couple of letters

Best document management system

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

NetDocuments is very intuitive for most employees. Has all of the core features of document management implemented very well. It is fully cloud based, so it takes off our mind all of the duties of archiving.

Cons

Some flexibility is missing. Several features are not completely implemented, so they sort of work but require workarounds. They could take a key from the competition on several UI design choices.

Great way to securely share and store documents

Reviewed 4 years ago

Our business has many people who all work together on the same projects and this has given us a way to conveniently keep every one up to date by providing updates to everyone almost immediately.

Pros

This software makes it very convenient to keep all documents organized by user or client and has many features which can be used to ensure the security of the documents.

Cons

The search feature can be difficult to figure out the verbiage to use, and if you are searching for a document that you have not been given access to it does not inform you of that, instead it just says “not found”

Vendor response

Thank you for your kind words and feedback! We are continually working to improve our product and have shared your feedback with our product teams. Please note that for security reasons expected by many customers, we intentionally do not disclose if a document exists if the searcher doesn't have access rights to view that document. Thank you for being a NetDocuments customer!
