A new cloud service from German company Doo collects and organizes both local and online documents and stores them centrally in a secure and easily searchable way.
Document management has been a perennial challenge over the years, but German Doo recently launched a new solution. The new cloud service collects and organizes both local and online documents and stores them centrally in a secure and easily searchable way. Newcomers to Doo, which is now in beta, begin by defining where the service should search for files, whether locally or online. Email accounts as well as Google Docs, Dropbox and Evernote can all be included, and users can specify individual documents manually as well. Doo then automatically analyzes the documents with a text recognition algorithm, tags them and safely stores them in a single, central location. With tags like “invoice,” “date,” “sender,” “place” and “.pdf,” users can easily find the right document in seconds, says Doo, which is also working on enabling legally valid document exchange. Meanwhile, Doo also enriches the data from documents with company information, contact details, or geographical coordinates. In addition, it can extract relevant due dates from documents and automatically set reminders. Last but not least, Doo can identify document creation and modification dates, allowing for searching and filtering by date or time span. Now available for Windows 8 and Mac OS X Lion, Doo is free for up to 2,000 documents or 1GB of storage. Thereafter, pricing begins at EUR 4.99 per month.
