Arlington, VA — Capterra, an online service that helps businesses find the right software, today released a new infographic detailing The Top 20 Most Popular Document Management Software solutions. The infographic is part of a series of "Top 20" research Capterra has performed for leading software categories. Alfresco, docSTAR, and Asite take the top 3 spots.
Capterra ranks the Top 20 vendors using its popularity index: a weighted and ranked score including number of customers, number of users, and presence on social media sites, including Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Google+. Document Management is the 18th software category to be indexed by Capterra in this series.
Document Management Software improves the operations of businesses worldwide by tracking and storing paper documents through digitization, allowing the user to save multiple versions, capture images and provide security through encryption. The software is commonly used by industries that are subject to government regulation, including healthcare, food safety, accounting and other industries required to show evidence of proper documentation.
"Document Management Software is essential for any company maintaining and managing a large amount of paperwork," said Capterra president and CEO, Mike Ortner. "I think everyone has been waiting for the day the filing cabinet becomes obsolete. We might not be a completely paper-free world yet, but software is helping to decrease the volume of paper we all have to deal with on a daily basis, saving not only trees¿but headaches."
Recent additions to this series of infographics include the Top 20 Most Popular Event Management, Marketing Automation and Mental Health EHR Software. In order to keep up to date with industry trends, Capterra plans to update each study multiple times per year.
