NetDocuments 13.2 release and the new apps marketplace
NetDocuments today announced the immediate availability of NetDocuments’ apps marketplace, a centralised location for third-party software developers to create apps that integrate with the company’s existing cloud-computing content management and collaboration services. The marketplace showcases apps that users can implement to streamline workflows and improve performance in managing their repository of documents and emails.
“The marketplace is a great way to bring together our community of end users and outside developers to produce programs that improve collaboration surrounding document and email management,” said Leonard Johnson, vice president of marketing and product management at NetDocuments. “The creation of this marketplace is a reflection of our commitment to ensure our software is continually improving to provide both our customers and technology partners with all the tools they need to succeed.”
In conjunction with the launch of the marketplace, NetDocuments also unveiled the 13.2 release of its content management and collaboration service. The latest version offers a REST API to simplify the creation of programs made available in the marketplace. With the new REST option, which joins the SOAP as approved APIs, developers have added flexibility and a more robust way to integrate apps with NetDocuments. The marketplace currently includes developments by Clio, SocialText, Omtool, Salesforce, IntApp, and iDocID.
As part of the 13.2 update, NetDocuments also improved NDSearch, an enterprise-class search platform embedded in NetDocuments and available to all users. To enable easier access and retrieval of emails, the update includes quick links that present a comprehensive list of emails sent and received by the user, regardless of where the emails are stored in the account. A new streamlined “My Email” section displayed in the header allows users to:
*Conduct full text, phrase and proximity search with the help of Boolean operators, lemmatisation and spell checking
*Narrow search results to only emails that contain attachments
*Search by recipient, sender, subject or CC field
*Set a default sort order by sent date or subject
“As the number of emails stored within our system surpassed the number of documents, we identified the need to bolster our search capabilities to meet customer needs,” said Johnson. “NetDocuments users will be able to better manage their high volumes of email correspondence with this new search feature, enabling them to immediately be more productive.”
