LogicalDOC At A Glance

Good: Multiple choices of plans and deployment (open source, cloud, on-premise), very short implementation process and training period, scalability.
Bad: Not intended for small businesses.
Bottom Line: Fully-featured document management system with scalable plans designed for medium and larger companies.

Product Overview

LogicalDOC is a document management system that tracks the entire lifecycle of a document or file. It’s available as either a cloud-based or an on-premise deployment.

Companies that access LogicalDOC via the cloud benefit from not having to purchase or maintain any software. However, companies that prefer the on-premise version have control of their own data and documents.

LogicalDOC also offers an open-source version (similar to OpenKM), as well as a mobile app downloadable from Google Play and the Apple app store.

LogicalDOC provides many benefits, such as:

  • Saving time and expense of storing and maintaining documents
